Cut by Barry Bridgestock of http://acstones.com/

I felt a little left out of everyone but me having a Barry. I wanted one... no I NEEDED one. So, I got one :D

She's moody... in such a good way! Sometimes she's minty, others she's just green And oh the flashes of
sunshine yellow she throws off. She's a spring daffodil all rolled up into a stone.

Lovely stone and pic.

What did you do to get the pic to look like that?

Thanks Lovinggems, Barry is amazing

Thanks Kenny,

The only thing I did was adjust the brightness and contrast to get rid of the overall greyness of the picture . The rest is in the focus. The stone is just a smidge narrower than the width of the holder (it gave it a grey halo) It was taken on my deck which is grey. I stuck the holder into a bracket for flower pots, the groove is a perfect size to hold the gem-holder.

This is the photo before I adjusted the brightness and contrast. The first photo was more realistic to what I actually saw.

I am starting to love PS as much for the photography as for the stones! Davi, that is such a cool photo! It looks as if you devoted a good deal of time setting up this shot to get the perfect artistic rendering of that tourmaline...

Oh, and was I supposed to comment on the stone too?! :mrgreen:

You bought the plant bracket on purpose to fit the gem holder, didn't you, Davi? Smart dude. Great tourm! Pic ditto, lots of work in that. It will look super w/its colored diamond sibs.

Now it's my turn -- must be the only PSer without a Barry stone, not from lack of wanting one! I'll catch up to y'all soon!
