    Why would you put a company logo on your images if they aren't paying you?

    One would not find that facial expression in one of their ads.

    FYI, firefox doesn't seem to load your website. Unless it's just me :hsd:

    Because sometimes for clients to see how images are marketable, they need to see copy on it. So people make mock ads for their portfolios to show how the images could be used.


    .

    And it's not a very good angle, and the lighting is meh

    Secondly, it's spelled Gabbana

    and lastly, Those are D&G sunglasses not Dolce & Gabbana. They're 2 independent lines from the same company. If they were Dolce & Gabbana glasses they'd actually have "Dolce & Gabbana" spelled out on them, not "D&G." If you intend to show something like this to a client, you definitely want to make sure to do your research and have your facts (and labels) correct.

    I can't remember if it also applies to sunglasses, but most Dolce are just plain creepy and there's always some sort of dominant/submissive element going on :noes:

    Just tried that page in firefox and you're right it doesnt. Weird.

    I agree it's not the best picture, just seemed fitting to me. This is a picture I took at that red carpet thing so this was just a 'snap', not a set up shot. But given what kind of picture it was, I was pleased.

    I'd never send this to anyone except you guys but thanks for your critique. It wasn't done as a spec ad or anything (Although it is something I'd like to get into) I had no idea about their labels and how they operate. Can't believe I misspelled it though, I googled that damn thing!

    Yah I looked at handful of their ads and they do have a theme going. This is more a sunglass hut ad or something.

    I thought it was neat. I don't really see it being exactly what they would advertise, but it isn't incredibly far off either.
