Simple still life of wedding rings.
Hmmm… reminds me of one set of these same kind 12 years ago. 🙂
The way the rings are placed off-center is artistically cool. And the rough texture of the cloth contrasts with the smooth metallic finish of the rings. Also noticeable is the diagonal area of focus. Makes me want to print this out and write something on the ‘blank’ portion – “Happy Anniversary!”. Me and my wife’s anniversary btw was last Jan. 8. 🙂
