Are you using a light box? Looks good to me even tho I’m not a fan of other things in the photo or backdrop stones. The stone could be a slight lighter in my opinion.

I am using a light box. I saw a couple other ideas for getting the stone up (floating if you will), I may try those. I didn't think it looked that great with the stone just lying on the bottom of the light box. Out of 100 pics I thought this was the best, but I'll try a few more things.

Thanks. Imo getting a good pic is infinitely harder than cutting the stone. But then again I don't feel like I'm all that great at either yet :p
