:-) I love the ad so figured why not! I doubt this will do very well as some people probably will never have seen the commercial, but those who have hopefully will get a laugh.

I will put the steps up later.

LOL Ok, no need to put up the steps. I must say so many comments that have no idea why I did the shot this way.

Here is the link watch and laugh
Old Spice Ad

Anyway, I thought the technicals were right on the money so I guess for me it just goes to show shoot what you want and if voters miss it so what :) Thanks to those who did get it as well!

In terms of exposure, composition, clarity, ,etc., this is surely one the best in the challenge. I realize you probably lifted the frame color from the Old Spice logo, but I don't think it helps your photo. I also wish there was a little more connection between the product and the environment. Still, a high vote from me.

Hahaha, simple, very clear, the product is in the forefront and a great visual message that gets the message across. The only objection I have is that some people may not have seen the TV ad and therefore wouldn't understand why the product is on the piano. Other than that I love this!

Hopefully people will associate this with the commercial! Took me a little while to get it, but it's very well put together.

This is one of the better ads. Mainly because of its concept that connects with thier TV campaign. Masterful. Product is well placed with lots of room for text. Sweet! Technicals are perfect too. 10

This is among my favorites and I love the lines & contrast. The depressed keys are slightly distracting to me and I wonder what it would have looked like if you had put a weight on those keys under the lid to keep them up.

Nice angle and composition. The piano seems a little dark.

Technically very well done, but not sure I get the Old Spice-piano connection.

this is a good idea.

What a great idea. I really like the composition of this photo. The bottle seems to lack a bit of sharpness or something.. I can't put my finger on it, but something just feels 'off'. An excellent job though.

I'm not sure that Old Spice and pianos go together, but it's a great image.

Unentertaining to the eye and not very appealing.
02/06/2008 10:12:25 AM
A little too soft.

i think if the piano was more in focus throughout the photo, it would have turned out to be really classy

02/06/2008 09:06:02 AM

Relevance to the piano?
