I really love the picture!!! Both of my parents smoke so this really hits home for me. I'm not sure about the red splotches in the back. Possibly blood but it definitely draws attention to the ground where so many cigarettes were left. I don't know much about photography but I think you really did capture this message of consequences of smokers. I've seen commercials against smoking and other adds this one just seems to add a nice realistic aspect to the propaganda. Overall I like this photograph I think you did a good job advertising your message and you will probably have more critiques from me on your other pieces.
Smoking is a really bad thing, it's bad for the health, and the atmosphere of this photo has clearly shown that reality. I like how the red blotches can symbolize the effects of smoking to a person. I really think this is well done, though, there could still be a lot of improvements in this photo and would make a bigger impact if there was some lighting of some sort..
My sister even went so far as to buy duty-free cigarettes at an airport in New Zealand. She complains about how "there's less in one pack, but at least those disgusting pictures aren't there!" I don't think anything can stop them. Good photograph, though.
So she can't get over those images? I'd hate to see how she would react to something graphic happening in front of her. A person can avoid photos, but you cannot avoid seeing a violent act if you were at the wrong place at the wrong time.
No wonder. "Reality is harsh" as I have heard time and time again. Although people do continue to smoke despite the images shown on the cartons, it does show persistence in continuing a habit many oppose.
wow really? I heard they wanted to do that here in the us but cigarette companies boycotted the idea and so they just put smoking can cause lung cancer in big bold letters all over cartons and on the top flap like that one on the packs
I heard about that incident. Apparently putting big bold letters on cigarette cartons instead of some graphic image is a less effective method of getting people to quit smoking. A smart business decision if that is the case.
