I don't think the composition is focused on the ring itself enough and the placement of it in the flower is disturbing the brilliance of the diamond.

What lens did you use? Do you own a 1:1 Macro?

Too far to the edge, flower is orange and attracts eye, nothing leads to the ring, ring is definitely not in a good situation.

I took this during a portrait session with a couple using a 50mm f/1.8. I had never tried an engagement ring shot before and though I would have a bash at it.

Do you think it would look better if the orange was desaturated a bit?

The image is actually cropped, I liked it at the edge but will try a different look and post it to see what you guys think. Thanks for the comments.

I didn't even see the ring at first.

I agree with the others, and while the new crop is an improvement, the flower looks like the dominant subject in the photo.
