Here is my best image for the metal and glass assignment. Though I had the metal half of this, my object had both, plus a shiny box in the background, so there was a whole family tree of angles. I'm fairly pleased with the results, though I'd tweak the framing, back up a bit for deeper depth of field and try to get that one facet to not have a light reflection. But, overall, I'm happy with the shot and certainly learned a lot on this assignment.
(Columbia, Mo. October 15, 2008) When designing baseball’s greatest prize, a world series ring, the 2007 World Champion Boston Red Sox formed a committee of both players and front office members, who opted to modify the team’s 2004 design, replacing that year’s “B” with the team’s other logo, hanging red socks. The ring is cast in white gold with 42 total diamonds, eight natural rubies and four synthetic sapphires. Along one side of the ring is an engraving of Fenway Park with “7th World Championship” and “4-0 Sweep” and on the other are the Boston “B,” a replica of the World Series trophy and the ring owner’s last name. Inside the ring, the date “10-28-07” is engraved, commemorating the date of the title game.
