Erica, your pics are just fine, far better than not too shabby silly. Good job!

Maise, love that white flower shot. Gorgeous.

Coati, there are no rules on the arrows. lol And yeah, ya little show off, fire AND arrows??!

I got lucky and got one of those once, I should drag it over here. That doesn''t happen often. Yours turned out gorgeous!

Lynn, I KNOW one of those used to be in your av.

snlee, your favorite is one of my all time favorite shots on PS. Love it.

marcy, lol @ the fuzz.

jelly, love the IS pic!

orbaya, partials count! There are many ways to get good arrow shots. Diffused lighting is usually key. Windowsills are great for getting them. Anytime soft light is shining in the back of the setting, it helps to get them. But it''s not totally necessary. I''ve gotten them in many situations. The other key thing is just getting the camera lined up straight (or close to) with the stone to catch them. Just experiment a bunch, and you''ll eventually find what works for you!


Thank you ALL for your gorgeous pics. You''ve made me so glad I started the thread. This IS going to be a fun one!

Ellen, you have turned me into a photo crazed lady! FI saw this thread last night and just rolled his eyes because he knows that now I will spend hours trying to capture arrows!

All of the photos thus far have been fantastic!!

A little blurry, but I love the blue!

Cuz I rarely wear it. If I want to wear diamonds then I usually wear my calla. It''s a gorgeous diamond pining away in it''s box, sniff.

I think it will come out to play much more as a RHR. Those arrows need to be seen!

DeeJay, that''s one of my all time fav photos here! Love it!

So, whoopdeedoo, all you arrow girls posting your fierce arrows and all that. Fine. Whatever. Some of us only have spears. Or snowflakes. Can we post our spears and snowflakes here too? Or is this an anti-spear-ite thread?!?

You guys always make my day! I am SO SWAMPED with my business right now that I have virtually no time to be on PS so it''s a miracle I even remembered to come back to this thread after my super fast post this morning, and here are all these nice comments.

Sometimes, BTW, I''m afraid my arrows look "too skinny" next to everyone else luciious fat ones, but I guess it''s nice to have *something* skinny in my life, LOL!

DeeJay, add me to the list of admirers on that Brick shot. And with the size stone you have, and the dimensions, you need skinny arrows. It you had fat ones, it wouldn''t look good.

Stephanie, really, he''s your boss?? Well hell, you got it made in the shade girl!

Surfgirl, I am not the descriminitory type, so post your spears/snowflakes. lol

Just don''t be hatin on our arrows.

Gemma, nice! And I see that fire "almost" bustin out.

Nebe, you''re funny. "wannabe arrows" I see a resemblance there!
