I got the idea for this photo on my way to pick up my son from his daycare. I had about 15 minutes to explain my plan, have te kids draw some artwork, and go shoot a few photos.

This was the best of those which illustrated the only "product" I'd really like to advertise (or we need) right now.

I assume this is for MasterCard? Excellent photo, but it seems like a (small) stretch to get it into the advertisement challenge.

Kids and peace are both priceless, but I don't think it is possible to sell either one :-) Well, maybe possible, probably not legal. Anyway. Good picture. The black and white really sets the mood well in this pic.

This would make a nice public service ad. I like the feeling of friendship and unity that this conveys.

Like your idea. Seems a bit dark, but that could be my monitor. I shall assume that.

Kinda nice, but I'd like to see some more detail in the girl's face. I think you could have composed differently, too, for better effect. I'd have tried to get closer and used the slide as the entire background without the XXX at R and L showing.

I'll buy some peace!

Because of the title, I'm trying to make this into a Mastercard commerical, but I'm not able to make the leap. Other than that, I don't know what else you might be trying to advertise. Cute children, I like the slide, but I find the other background elements detract from the kids.

great expressions. Don't know that I get what they've drawn though.

Way cool!!!! Love it. Two cute little kids. It would be nice if adults could get along like kids. :)

Bad attempt to win sympathy
05/07/2002 07:18:00 PM
cute idea and nice photograph, would love to have seen the peace symbols drawn in big black felt markers that would read more immediately, great choice of message to promote

I'm not sure what is being advertised here.

Very cute shot.. the innocence of it all.. but something is missing... I'm really not sure what.. but the thing that makes me want to keep on looking is missing.

nah, not priceless, I'll give you 50 bucks for the pair, can they mow lawns and wash cars??

he he he

Is the CND symbol relevant or is the pic just of cute kids?

It's adorable, a great use of black and white, and even though I'm sure many people will say it doesn't meet the challenge guidelines, it 'sells' a great idea :) Very effective.

i'm all for peace, but a) peace isn't a product and b) this photo just feels a little contrived to me.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/06/2002 08:11:00 PM
Cute kids. I'm really trying to figure out what you are selling... peace?
  Photographer found comment helpful.

one of the only meaningful ads

Your right..priceless kiddo's. Darling.
Simple message. Good job.

Great concept. The girl is a little overshadowed. Photo 8 Advert 8 total 8

This is a really nice shot... black and whites are my favorites, as usual. What product is being advertised here? I presume 'Peace' purchased with a MasterCard? :)
  Photographer found comment helpful.

great idea, could use just a bit more light.

Incredible. The expressions on these faces ARE priceless, as is the message. Thanks for sending a message!

Cute idea, the kid on the right looks like the kid from Kindergarten Cop.

awwwwwwwwwwww :)

just wanted you to know that I get it even if you get marked down by the general concensus for not having a brand name in the shot (and they probably will). Nice contrast, both visually and spiritually. Good Luck.

Very high marks, not because its a technically perfect picture, b ut b ecause of the subject matter.
