For Elvish lovers, here is a picture of our wedding rings, it is engraved with elvish scripts and in english it would mean "Love is not a feelings, it is a verb" I need all your comments about how to make a better picture. Regards

Beautiful picture! I depth of field can be larger and the background may be too plain.

the blurred space at the bottom of the pic is very light and distracting. draws all the attention away from the rings. Try a darker background, a smaller crop or a diffrent angle... experiment

Good idea and congrats on your ring ;) It looks real cool. But anyway. The reflection helps no doubt but you gotta becareful about the horizon, it's slanted to the right now. Also, there are parts on the rings where it is overexposed. Background seems..dirty somehow. Use a one colour background might help.

Also is this shot in studio where you have complete control of light? or is this shot with available light? Anyhow, the source of light may be too strong here, hence the overexposed parts. maybe use a diffuser. I would aslo get rid of the blurred area at the foreground. maybe use a mirror as the base might give better impact.

The shot is good and has potential, but not quite reaching it. ;)

Hmm, you actualy took a good one. Try more positions, angles, different lightenings...But I like this one - the reflection helps a lot. What I do not like is the blury "edge" in the bottom part. Go on trying.
