i see washed out images in advertising and magazine article images all the time -- as in this case washout didn't harm the photo (or product) at all, you did a GREAT job!! Congrats!
05/13/2002 10:07:00 AM
yes, congrats! :)
05/13/2002 06:11:00 AM
hey, you made it! well done!

I'm shocked to say the least that this took third. I agree the flowers were washed out and I wasn't entirely happy with the image. Glad everyone enjoyed it!

Excellent... one of my favorite images
05/12/2002 09:45:00 PM
Silver. Anniversary. I get it without the title :) Nice job.
05/12/2002 05:33:00 PM
This is another good comercial, and would sell the product.
05/12/2002 12:13:00 AM
That better be a sterling silver bottle cap; I don't think a fancy beer will cover it. I like everything else.
05/11/2002 09:42:00 PM
The flowers provide the perfect background for this shot. The lighting is just a bit harsh on the white rose. Was this sunlight coming through a window? The frostiness of the bottle adds a good dimension to the feel of this. NIce capture!

beautifully arranged, I deducted one point but I think I need a new monitor.
05/10/2002 03:41:00 PM
Great image that works well
05/10/2002 01:51:00 AM
The slight tip to the left is destracting
We are allowed to rotate in photoshop, and you can do partial degrees this is like a 1 or 1.5 clockwise and it woud be execelent..

You did a lot right here. The lighting on the bottle is very slick and professional, and the note and flowers add story to the image. Using a cold bottle for condensation was good thinking, too. On the downside, the flowers go from underlit at the bottom to overexposed at the top, the whole needs some CW rotation, and the idea of screwcap malt liquor as an anniversary present probably won't fly with the missus. Kind of wonder about the two torn and one cut edges on the note, as well. Tough call. What's good is very good, but there are elements that detract in a big (to me) way.

its not wine... flowers look too fake and i don't have emotional attachment to this product. a dry bottle would have worked better and not get water on your note distracting.
05/09/2002 03:26:00 PM
nice composition--i really like the colors that the flowers add. The note is a nice touch
05/09/2002 10:50:00 AM
Cute idea, the lighting is a little off in my opinion, but overall, very good!
05/09/2002 03:37:00 AM
nicely done
05/08/2002 11:58:00 PM
Nice composition.
05/08/2002 11:06:00 PM
Frosting the bottle is a nice touch. I think I'd be nice to have a little more light on the bottle and a little less on the flowers. The background at the upper left and the table edge at the lower left are a little distracting. The note is cute!
05/08/2002 05:29:00 PM
very nicely done, i like that you frosted the bottle, so essential in illustrating cool and wet, the only improvements i'd like to see would be that the bottle befully vertical with label facing out and that the hotspot in the flowers be toned down just a bit. great work!! nice concept well esecuted!
05/08/2002 05:22:00 PM
Good photo. Clear Advertisement.
05/08/2002 03:46:00 PM
You love me? You don't even know me : ) Very well done.
05/08/2002 01:10:00 PM
I don't think the orange side lighting is appealing, maybe a software less harsh light would've worked better.
05/08/2002 07:20:00 AM
gGreat shot! The condensation on the bottle shows through nicely. I love the use of light - the flowers are nice touch. (It would have been nice if they were real, but that would have been expensive!!!!!!!) I still give you a high rating. Great job!
05/07/2002 11:56:00 PM
cool juxtaposition and well constructed still life
05/07/2002 08:41:00 PM
The table picks up the color of the leaves, the flowers complement the frostiness of the bottle. The red accents the red on the label. The note is absolutely inspired!
Good job!
05/07/2002 04:27:00 PM
A great composition. I think I would have cropped to get rid of the distraction at the bottom left. Wonder how many said that the bottle was slanted? I think you planned it that way. One of the better ones to me.
05/07/2002 04:27:00 PM
Excellent composition. Love the concept. Especially like how the bottle is light against the shawdows caused by the flowers behind it. The note is a great touch.
05/07/2002 03:49:00 PM
great setup
05/07/2002 01:44:00 PM
this is beautiful. one of the best pics in the challenge. i think though i would have tried to adjust white balance so that the light to the right isnt so yellowish.
05/07/2002 04:21:00 AM
Very pretty, but the photo seems cluttered, and the bottle is at an awkward angle. The lighting is very nice.
05/07/2002 01:47:00 AM
great idea--bet bacardi will be mad they didn't think of it! maybe just a little tighter cropping on the bottom-- you get a 9!
(even though that stuff is heinous!:)
05/06/2002 08:33:00 PM
Great concept...I wish the flowers were real...
05/06/2002 08:07:00 PM
Beautifully laid out and executed. Professional look.
05/06/2002 07:17:00 PM
Great lighting and color, I like the warm tone
05/06/2002 05:59:00 PM
I love this photo.
05/06/2002 05:57:00 PM
I really like this photo. Nice composition & theme. Lighting is a bit curious, but I like it. Great job!
05/06/2002 05:38:00 PM
Aaahhhhh cuuuttee!!! No really, I like it.
05/06/2002 03:10:00 PM
I think this is my favorite in this challenge. i dont like bacardi silver but I LOVE this photo... The only improvement that may or may not have been possible here is to equalize the lighting temperature across the entire photo. in the upper right corner, the lighting has a more yellow tint to it than in the rest of the shot. Very nice concept here!!
05/06/2002 02:51:00 PM
Real flowers would of been better, I still like the shot.
05/06/2002 01:29:00 PM
very nice extremly crisp photo.
05/06/2002 12:51:00 PM
Very nice, pretty shot.
Upper right light is a distraction, also the bottle looks tilted ---but all in all it's a good shot.
05/06/2002 10:29:00 AM
Great photo, good advert, maybe a little sweat beading on the glass would have been nice. Also, on your lighting....it may have been a little harsh. On my screen the
white rose in the upper middle is almost washed out. Tech 8 Advert 9 - total 9
05/06/2002 08:40:00 AM
This has been my favorite adversising photo so far.
05/06/2002 07:56:00 AM
My Favorite.
05/06/2002 06:24:00 AM
Very attractive setup. The condensation on the bottle is making me thirsty.
05/06/2002 06:13:00 AM
Don't drink, but I sure like the picture. The note makes a neat touch.
05/06/2002 06:02:00 AM
This is awesome !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I love everything about it ! A 10 !
05/06/2002 12:38:00 AM
Beautiful shot.
05/06/2002 04:24:00 PM
Wow, the colors are a bit washed for my liking, but other than that this is excellent.
