First impression is "What a great idea" after viewing the photo for a few minutes I found a couple "Tiny" flaws but that's why I am here I guess. In my opinion I really enjoyed the shot.

The first pair of shades has what apprears to be a little blowout on the top of the frame. It could be my monitor though. The second pair is nice and holds everything well. The third pair suffers from a couple of things.

First... the top of the frame has blowout, from the flash maybe?

Second...The sudden color difference in the upper left part of the lens. Not sure what happened there but it's a little distracting.

Third...the black arm that floats out there in the back ground. It's too bad Ray Ban didn't make that model with the lighter color ear bar would have made the shot much better.

What I do like about the picture is your creative idea. I really enjoy the shadow cast by the first pair of shades. It really puts space between the sunglasses. The composition is nicely done and the lighting isn't too over powering yet soft enough to enjoy looking at the photo. If you ever try this shot again I would put the darkest pair of sunglasses in the back of the shot not in the middle. Being in the middle the dark pair shuts down any chance for a depth effect in the lens themselves. I really enjoyed the shot overall. Keep up the good work.

I'm really confused by this shot...unless your last name is Bahn? but the glasses are spelled Ban, so I'm not sure if its a typo or a play on words...or something else entirely. Really good shot though, would be great for stock.

i like your composition. i have trouble with the difference in focus between the 2nd and 3rd pair. maybe it also has something to do with the lighting shift on the 3rd pair on the logo. not sure about the title not being ray ban's? is bahn some sort of james bond sounding reference...i'm lost, but that isn't so surprising.

gorgeous shot... considering a career in marketing? ;-)

unique idea I like the concept. The light on the front lense is a little bothersome.
07/11/2005 06:50:58 PM
too bad about the lint on the lense of the first pair of sunglasses. Nonetheless a great shot!

Clever concept. Well executed capture.

An interesting graphic image, besides the fingerprint, its very clean and well lighted. But doesn't say "family" to me, sorry.

Nice. Very sharp. Good composition. I like the repetition. Is that lint on the front lense? If not for those little specks It would be an ad in a magazine.

good for a sotck photo
07/11/2005 02:11:19 AM
cool picture but i feel it's a little impersonal for the subject. also the smudges/scratches (?) on the lens of the first one distract from an otherwise nice composition.

CLEVER!!!!!! Well done studio shot. I like this very much. 9

The fingerprint and lint on the lens should go.
