Nicely composed but product/brand not prominent enough for an ad.

A blotter would have added to this setting.

A nice photograph. My main complain is that the label on the ink you are advertising is very dark and thus doesn't really stand out. 6

I can't see the label very clearly, it's essential for advertising!

I like the idea of your photo, but I think a different background would have worked better.

Presumably, the product is the ink, and a client would not stand for an old, stained, chipped example of their product to be featured in their advertisement. The photography, however is really outstanding!

This creates a nice nostalgic feel which compliments the brand very well. Nice job with that. It's a picky point, and maybe my monitor just needs calibration but the lable on the ink bottle seems too dark. Lighting it a bit more might have improved the image.

Great shot! Just the bubble in the cloth and the stains on the label take a little away. Old bottle though. You can be very proud of this!

More light on the label would make it easier to read. Nice composition though.

I like the shot - but I wish the empty part of the bottle was clean. I'm not a neat-freak or anything, but it seems too distracting to me.

Great shot. Would have been even better if the wrinkles in the cloth were taken out.

nice light, but the bottle is too used for a ad shot
