Yes!! I like this picture much better. The crystals seem sharper, brighter, and sparkle more. Maybe you could cut back on your highlights a little, to reduce glare at the top right of the stone…Not an important thing though. Good job @elianafranzenburg!
I’m very impressed! Nice and sharp now. Better color. What is the dark area running along the top of the gem?
Also, I don’t know how large it is now what lens you have, but I think a neat follow-up shot (or to add to your gem photos collection) if you had the time and ability would be a closeup, with the awesome texture completely filling the frame!
