I recently saw a mobile phone ad that inspired these shots.    I tried it several ways and narrowed all of my attempts down to these two shots.  However, I couldn’t pick between them.

What do you think?  Do you have a preference between the two shots below?

Snow Pic #1.  Not terrible, but not great.  A lot of glare on the phone screen, and my hand should have really been in a glove considering all the snow.  The lighting on everything in the background — from the trees and shrubs to my neighbor’s house — seems better than the shot below.  Since most of us read from left to right, my eye travels from my naked hand to the phone to the background which is more intuitive than the shot below.

Snow Pic #2.  I like the pink glove in this shot, but wish I could have taken it from a vertical flip so the eye travels from the pink glove to the phone to the background.  The glare on the phone screen is less in this shot, but it’s still there and that bugs me, even more so because there’s probably an easy way to get rid of it with Photoshop, but I don’t know how to do it.

  1. Pic #1 is better framed and more appealing to the eye in my opinion.

  2. I like these very much Sage but on balance, I think I’d go with number one. 🙂

  3. I like the first one the best because it’s like you are looking through a window :). Both are cool though!

  4. Fun idea! I like the composition of the first shot, but I love the color pop of the glove and it also feels appropriate since it appears to be cold.

  5. No 1 is best even though that splodge of pink helps the second. My view is that No 1 works because it is that same image in both camera and phone tells a story. Not sure I am going to give the concept a go. Cheers.

  6. They’re cool. I like the glove too. 🙂

  7. HAHAHA How fun and clever! I love how you did that!


I love hearing from you!
