Subtle and very well presented ad..I will give this one of my highest ratings...9...but bet it will not do that well. Pity! Excellent work.

What's being advertised here, the watch?...the wedding band?...pearls hidden in the oysters?

To me this doesn't show jewelry. There is jewelry in the picture but it doesn't "advertise" jewelry IMO.

A good idea, if only you had been showcasing the watch or ring. This could be an ad for "everyday" jewelry

good Idea but falls down slightly in that the watch seems to take a back seat and the face is ovwexposed 5

Might be a tid better if the jewelry were more of the focus of the picture.

Really nice photo, I'd think you're selling shells or small stones, however. The hand have ton of character.

Quite a uniques take on this challenge.
I will think outside the box on this and assume the shells are going to be used towards jewelry (not unusual)
There seems to be a slight imbalance in the focus/where the sharp portions are vs. where the dof falls off. I would expect to see the hands very clear and the shells in the box out of focus. Exposure good and focal point where it works best. (6)

Interesting photo, but how does this fit as a 'Jewelry Advertisement'? Really, I'm not trying to be sarcastic, I just don't see the connection. Cool photo tho.

I can't picture this as a jewelry ad.

Interesting take on the challenge

Interesting composition and concept.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/27/2005 05:05:28 PM
does not have the feel of an ad to me... also doesnt really look like a (jewelry) ad either.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/27/2005 03:15:31 PM
This is a nice shot, but perhaps for an advertisement the face of the watch should be more prominent?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/26/2005 06:53:55 PM
The biggest problem with this shot is that the main subject is the shells, and not the jewelry.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/26/2005 03:11:57 AM
nice idea but not sure this will do well as the focus is not on jewelry but the shells
I like it
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/25/2005 07:24:16 PM
selling shells ? i don't think this is very effective for jewelry
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/25/2005 03:37:18 PM
I sure like the concept and message. But I'm afraid I just don't sense the jewlery is the focus.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/25/2005 01:22:49 PM
ok what r u advertising? seashells, the watch, or the ring?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/25/2005 01:06:51 PM
If I didn't know the challenge subject, I wouldn't know that the watch and ring were important. The eye is drawn to the shells in the hand. Proof that "The Rule of Thirds" rules!!!

Interesting view but i'm not sure it "sells" the jewelry. Don't worry though, mine didn't either lol. Keep it up!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/25/2005 09:21:08 AM
great image, but I'm not sure if you are trying to advertise the ring, the watch or the stones? seashells?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/25/2005 02:48:37 AM
not enough focus on jewelry...
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/25/2005 02:19:17 AM
Nice shot, but unfortunately not much of an advertisement.
