About the Image(s)

This image was created using two images taken by my mobile Samsung A52. As it was close-up shot, I just moved the camera just 3 cms only. f/2.4, ISO-100, Exposure time 1/50 sec. Both images were aligned using SPM. Minor corrections on levels,contrast and saturation was done in photoshop.

This is a packet of cigrettes with 'Menthol cool taste (Blue dots), I just replaced one cig with 'Fruity cool fresh taste'(Red dot). I understand that FDA just banned the Mentol cigrettes last week.

Very well done. The lighting is slightly harsh with so much white, but the perspective is excellent. My only suggestion is to add more substance to the background so the image has a bit of context. We see the cigarettes quite well, but we don't know their story.
This would also look very good as a 'high key' image with a white background and few shadows.   Posted: 05/11/2022 10:05:04

Well done image. I keep wondering what the image on the bottom of the pack is. I have only smoked 3 sigs as a young boy about 11 and 3 was all I could stand. Later I got a free pack of 6 while on a commercials air flight in the 70s when you could even smoke them while in the air. I just wanted to see what one looked like. So much for my story -- I thought about a white background but I think that would take away from the focus on the pack.   Posted: 05/16/2022 12:10:25
