Shoot & Edit: Heart (SOOC)

Sony DSC-HX1: 1/80 f4 ISO400
I had no idea what to do for this week's Point & Shoot challenge. At first I wanted to go "outside the box" and take a photo of my uncle's Purple Heart medal. I think I will still do that. But it is at my parent's house and I didn't have a chance to stop there today. I didn't think of it when I was there yesterday. I have a few pieces of jewelry with hearts. But didn't think they would work well in a photo. Then it ocurred to me. My Irish Claddagh ring. I wear it every day. It never comes off my finger. My mom gave it to me years ago and I love it. It is a link to my heritage. So I decided to photograph it. I have some versions of the above photo that are better macro shots but I kind of like that I can see a hint of a painting I did in the background. I already know I want to do some significant cropping to make the shot more interesting when I edit.
 
Off to enter the photo and see what other's have contributed to this week's challenge.

Happy Monday!
