I posted a concept shot for a piece of marketing material about a month ago (Original Thread). The general consensus was that it was missing something, and I agreed.

I went back and reshot a modified scene and I like it much better right now - at the very least its a step in the right direction. I'd love to know what you guys think of it, which composition works best and if you like it with one/all the lights on or off (I have to digitally turn the lights on and I haven't gotten around to that yet). All cc welcome - #1 is my favorite right now but let me know what you guys think. Thanks!

I have a few more angles but they are somewhat similar to some here. If necessary I'll post them.

The reflections in the lightbulbs are very distracting

Maybe you could try a reshoot without the white wall. I think the light bulbs get lost in it.

If I recall from your original thread you wanted to convey a going green type scenario. I therefore would be tempted to convert the terracotta pots to green and mask one bulb so that again it is green. Thus your message would be a little stronger. Unfortunately you do not have edit permission turned on so I will not insult you by posting my interpretation. Image no2 gets my vote by the way.

I was experimenting with the bulbs on earlier. This was a quick edit, let me know what you guys think - I've also changed edit permissions to allow editing for the time being.

Too many bulbs.even just two / one front one back, would convey the message for me?

Your African violets are also not in the best shape.pick off the spotted leaves.

I would leave them all in the terra cotta pots, the plastic doesn't say "green" to me?

Making things green doesn't mean it is green...:D It has to be environmentally green.
Again, you forgot the "energy saving" bulb?:cool:
I like this idea better though!


you're a great friend, but if Zombies chase us, I am tripping you.

I agree. The first thing I noticed is that the pots don't match. Nice concept though.

Wet your soil down. It will look more appealing. You may also try a photo of one bulb in one pot and a couple leaves growing under the bulb as if the bulb was the fruit or flower of the plant.

Ok, these are great suggestions. The only reason I didn't use the fluorescent bulbs was because I didn't have enough to fill the display. I'll reshoot when I get back home and I'll isolate one pot with a 'green' fluorescent bulb and a plant.
