Last resort

I'd reached the time of day when male Padders reach for their power tools! What had seemed like an
inspired idea for today's pic, a steaming iron, failed to produce a good pic, possibly because I
was as worried about burning the clothes as I was about getting my camera settings right.
So it was time to dip into my trinket box and pull out this pendant. As a cat lover I was unable
to resist it when I saw it displayed in a local boutique and the fact that it was in a sale
made it totally irresistible.

Nikon D90
1/60s f/5.6 at 50.0mm iso320 full exif

other sizes: small medium large

Theres a lot of detial in that tiny little object

Beautifully arranged and shot - the focus and shallow-ish DoF is just right...nicely done!

So nicely presented. Much more pleasing that a hot iron!

Your "last resort" turned out beautifully Mairead. ~

a bit cutsie yet a well-fashioned bit of bling...sinuous array of chains and pulsating oscillations in the silvery setting...V

It is irresisitable Mairead. What an adorable pendent.

Well, as far as desperation shots go, I've seen far worse (much closer to home 8^> ). Including the some of the texture of the fabric and the chains made for a good background (with just enough DOF), and I think you've arranged and lit it well. Nice background story as well, of course.
