this was supposed to be a SPOOFon Absolut Vodka ads.
many people passed comments on how the trademark bottle was not apparent in my photo.
I had no bottles on hand so I resorted to this plastic cup - of which is what they serve alcoholic beverages in when you go clubbing (maybe it's different from where you're from) .
the main idea was to portray alcoholism - drowning in your drink.. hoping to be rescued from your pathetic sorrows.. etc.
i must admit that the technical side of my photo is not perfect.
que se foda.

Eh. I seen no absolute, just an odd setup with 2 hands.

Not familiar with the product, doesn't sell its self. Backgroun busy.
05/11/2002 12:09:00 PM
Interesting photo. I'm just not sure what is for sale.

Props on the concept, execution seems based on convenice rather than perfection.

whats the product? hands? water? vodka? the glass? glare on glass very frustrating
05/09/2002 09:27:00 PM
The backdrop and idea are very good. The glare at the top, though, is distracting.
05/09/2002 11:54:00 AM
no, this doesn't work...the beads of water or whatever all over the glass are distracting, and if you are going to use absolut, there has to be some resemblence of a bottle somewhere
05/09/2002 04:47:00 AM
Interesting subjects and arrangement, but doesn't really follow the Absolut theme without the bottle. Holding a white card between the lightsource and the glass might have toned down those reflections, and another angle would probably be more interesting.

what? sure can't tell what is being advertised here. maybe the title helps some but sorry, titles don't count
05/08/2002 02:22:00 PM
I dont know if you can get one for your camera but a polarizing filter would have cut down on the reflection and might not have let you be as visible.
05/07/2002 06:02:00 PM
Drinking and driving don't mix advertising? Did you try to center the glass? Cool background. :) Ok, Absolut is a drink. Hmmm....still don't get it. I'll be back.
05/07/2002 04:39:00 PM
I would like to have seen the top of the glass!
05/07/2002 04:34:00 PM
What are you selling? Don't see the connection to ABSOLUT.
05/07/2002 11:03:00 AM
Hm. I'm not sure I'm inspired to buy absolut. A less obtrusive background would maybe have improved the photo, as well as not cutting off the top of the glass.
05/07/2002 06:33:00 AM
My feeling is that the title shouldn't make the picture fit the challenge if the image doesn't. kind of a surreal idea but I don't think the image does sell the idea of the advert
05/07/2002 02:15:00 AM
Hmm, the subject is kinda grotesque, the backdrop is a dull brownish-grey, the lighting doesn't seem to have any purpose.... sigh.
05/06/2002 07:45:00 PM
You're selling hands, right?
05/06/2002 05:33:00 PM
Don't get it. What are we selling here? What is it that is supposed to appeal to me.

Highly creative photo! Most inventive boozer shot, but less than effective advertisement. Photo 10 Advert 5 Creativity 10 total 8
05/06/2002 10:21:00 AM
This is a cool idea but without the title, I have no clue what I am buying... The picture does not show me the product... Creativity scores very well here though !!
05/06/2002 09:51:00 AM
Cool looking hands but I don't see the product your selling.

Where is the Absolut? The flash is too harsh and your backdrop has too much going on with it which distracts from the foreground. Biggest problem I have is that you are trying to mimic an Absolut ad but you left out the Absolut bottle.
05/06/2002 02:30:00 AM
Where is the product label? I like those hands alot. I want to own them :)

is that three fingers going down
