Thought behind this was good. A rose & engagement ring - classics together.
Overalll the lighting is a bit harsh and the shadow(s) are too strong / distracting.
Effective text/font used. (6)

Nice idea, but maybe focus a bit more on the ring itself, possibly by cropping the right side down a bit.

Excellent Idea, and composition, my concern is that the light relected off the ring makes it look a little out of focus...

Too much rose not enough of what you are selling

Nothing like a rose but when you do employ one you must give top billing to the ring. Here what we see is a hint od a lively ring but how lovely is not very clear. The composition is very good. Bumping up.

the ring is soft and too small for an ad shot

some things to think about-
1. seems like "Will you marry me?" should have been enclosed in quotation marks.
2. the next line is "Say it with flowers," but there's only one flower...
3. if we're supposed to say it with flowers, what is the ring doing there?
4. if this is a jewelry advertisement, why should we say it with flowers?

Good idea, but the strong shadow is distracting. Also the ring appears slightly out of focus

The light that was used is producing a bad shadow that distracts from the object of the picture. I wish the ring had been a bit clearer also. 6

Verry well thought! That's why the moust important instrument of work is criativity and imagination, not your camera. A 10

It looks like the flower is sharp, but the ring looks a little soft to me

nice idea...

nice text & composition is appealing. The lighing (and resulting shadows) are a bit too harsh for my liking, but it certainly makes the ring sparkle!

I don't like the lighting to much and the rose seems to way dominate the image.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Lighting looks a little harsh and the focus should be on the ring rather than the rose.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/27/2005 11:43:39 AM
Nice concept. Lighting seems a little hot on the ring and flower stem. Multiple light sources may help with this. I like the style of text you used. Overall, nice job.

great Idea and comp! however, I'd believe that this ad is for flowers and not jewelry.

Nice idea, unfortunately the ring is out of focus.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

shadows are pretty harsh here. look into ways to diffuse your light to make it softer. Here is a great, cheap way: //www.pbase.com/wlhuber/light_box

Perfect shot of the rose; the ring leaves a little bit to be desired. My motto is "If you're going to have red in the picture, it better be your subject, because it's going to be the dominant color." Just IMHO. 7

Cute idea, but the focal point is the rose, not the ring.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

While I appreciate your creative design on this shot, the onboard flash, kills this shot. This image requires a diffused lighting situation. This would work well with lighting from a window with a sheer curtain over it. The focus should also be sharpest on the ring. This is what you are trying to sell, without a sharp clear ring your viewer will likely look elsewhere for their ring.

This would have been better if it was in more of a portrait layout (like a magazine article)

nice idea but lighting seems kinda harsh.

the ring is blurry!!

Stunning! I really like the look of this. the lighting is perfect!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Composition: ok... the rose needs tobe turned to a nicer side
Lighting: too stark
Color: nice
Clarity: stone in itself looks out of focus, this may be because of the lighting tho?
Lettering: verynice font used

I think the crop is much too tight and the ring is not on focus.

If I had shot something like this, I would have tilt the camera so the flower would be in a corner to corner position, instead of a left to right position. I think diagonal composition have more power than conventional side to side ....

Nice sparkle!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/25/2005 02:30:57 AM
pretty...green line from rose stem going straight up sorta distracting...gl

Excellent idea - but I think that the size of the ring (relative to the whole photo) is too small - the idea was to have an advertisement shot which would (IMO) require a closer, more detailed look at the subject.
