Well I beg to differ. Unless of course you also consider someone stringing bear's teeth on a cat's gut and wearing it around one's neck jewelry...
There are necklaces I consider jewelry, and there are things you can put around your neck that would not qualify as such.

There are watches that I would consider jewelry, and then there are some watches I wouldn't.

But that's just me.


Hey I resemble that remark!

I shot my photo with more of a Point-Of Sales display in mind or catalogue and not at all for a full page Ad.

I'm not sure how to vote on hotspots? I noticed that in my research of images there were blowouts on maybe 80%-90% of the shots I saw, small and large except for a few. Diamonds left small multiple hotspots where silver or gold had streaks.

I wouldn't mind it if this rule becomes a standard/norm, at least perhaps for members challenges.

It's easy to be humble when you're bad...


don't give up on the humor aspect
sometimes it works (and some times it doesn't)
some like it (and some don't)

its easier to poke fun with humor
& whether they get it or not, it still is worth it

have to keep telling yourself the mantra
"the only opinion tht matters is my own"
because opinions are like * everyone has one ;)

This is also my personal best comments wise - and more importantly - score-wise. I'm hovering around 5.7 right now.

I know, some of you would say that you've bombed, but for me it is a major success. I've set up a goal for me to get 5.5+ by May, and This challenge closes on May 1st, so there you go.

I like monkeys.. would this monkey happen to come with the jewelry? :)

good points made by everyone, very interesting how people look at what atracts them to certain ad's. would that make it that much harder to score higher? But good views indeed.

I originally voted on all of the entries. Now I am going thru them again, adjusting as needed then commenting on all of them. I first look at them as a advertisement only. Will they sell the product and does the background go along with the product. Then I look at the display and the quality of the photograph. Some are excellent photo's yet as a ad they just do not make it. I hope I do not hurt anyones feelings but the first thing is to see if it is believable as a ad in a mag. Would you buy jewelry if it is displayed on a monkey? (no disrespect), but regardless of the quality of the photo, this is not believable. My thoughts.

I agree with you Buzz. I'm not done voting and commenting (going for the 100% again), but i find that a lot of pictures are "nice", but would not be very interesting in a magazine or billboard. Like you, i first go for the 'wow' of a magazine add, which makes you feel cool and makes you want to own the item displayed, then i go towards the composition and photography work.

And unfortunatly, most are just not "that" appealing to me for a mag. But some are awesome!

My score improved markably... (not that it's a super score but I will be happy if it stays above the 5.0 mark)
