i would ghost that shot of the watch u have in the bkgd a bit, it's competeing with the main product shot.

try some different type faces for the bottom copy, maybe reduce size a tad, same for leading...looks a little horsey

I'd also lighten the highlights just a bit. Make that foreground watch pop.

Re: Whatch Ad - what do you think?

Thanks jasz for the photos to work with.

KR - I made the adjustments you suggested, Thanks. And for some reason I always go to large with my type.

Swampy - I gave the main watch some contrast with levels adjustment. That makes it really pop. :-)

then I added some color to the top watch and the shadow.

Personally I'd lose the BG watch as it distracts from the main product shot and doesn't IMO add anything to the ad.

I like the general execution though.

CathyH,
I have to agree with Gary. The watch in the bg distracts my eyes from the main subject, which looks great.

Re: Whatch Ad - what do you think?

great, now retouch the watch. tis a mess. the bg watch is overly blue and too large imo - need a reason to see a close up of the face and it's got to look as good as the main image, but at the same time without distracting from your hero image.

example: http://events.hautehorlogerie.org/IM...HH07_300-2.jpg

edit: the whole thing is blue
