I love it. Quite a simple concept with a very obvious impact and message. Advertising at it's best.

Nice idear - but in this picture the model looks bored/ uninspired and the photoshop is not really convinsing.

The others are good.

Okay. Here I go with my first negative comment on Ads of the World.

Two things:

A. There is no need for an over-exaggeration with the pavement crumbling under her feet. Showing the purse pulling the woman into the store is more than enough to convey the concept.

B. The store looks really cheap and really run down too. Odds are a person wouldn't be spending too much in this store. If the store looked more high-end (Prada, Gucci etc.) than it would make more sense.

the typeface and layout seem to be lifted from an adidas ad about 5 years ago.
like the idea though.

The shadow on the floor is all wrong too. The hand cannot have as sharp a shadow as the leg which is much nearer to the ground. Learn the basics.

Yeah, the idea works. Keep working on the art direction and details.

The concept with these is nice. But visually it's a classic example of putting too much faith in retouching and the comping of multiple images together. Unless your DI studio is Industrial Light and Magic, try to get it right as best you can through the original photography, not retouching. Otherwise you end up with this fake look. It's not just this campaign, more and more are starting to look like this nowadays. The craft of photography is giving way to these digital imaging jobs but unless it's very very good, it just doesn't look quite right.
Nice insights though.

Can someone explain why the shop is so shabby? While the girl is sleek and modern looking. Why would she have an overwhelming desire to shop in this place? I really like the idea, but the shop and the girl don't jive.
