Sorry. But the Photographer should seriously talk to the typographer. Picture is very good.

I think this is a great attempt, this entire series, to try to add drama great art style to a topic such as that as trains. It is a good effort, considering most people find things such as transportation design boring. I, find it fascinating. However, I like these ads beyond that. I am not saying this is the best effort, I know this can be better but it is a start.

Actually, this piece is very academic. It is utilizing visual line queues to pull you through the work. They also use gradients to command how quickly the eye moves through the piece as well as guides as to if they should fall off or stay in frame. Again, very academic. I like it, a lot. I think, however, some things could make it better but this is very, very nice work.

Is there even a point to posting "Hmmmm..."? Come on man, elaborate.

I find it funny you want me to elaborate an hmmmm....what do you think it is? An acronym of some kind - like, perhaps - hahah, my moustache masks me?

No, I don't think it's an acronym. I do however, think it's a waste of bandwidth. If you have something to say about the ad, please say it. But if you just sit there deep in thought, staring at a picture, and the best you can come up with for a critique is, "Hmmm...", then save the finger power you exerted in typing that profound statement for something else...please.

Interesting.

You are actually telling me what to do with my time and my bandwidth. And my fingers.

Good lord, you ARE a deep individual. Absolutely profound. I mean "Hmmm..." then repeating what I said? How do you come up with such things?

All sarcasm aside, I merely suggested you do something with the bandwidth of this site other than typing the sound you make when you think. It's kind of like the person who gets to post first in a forum and all he/she says is "1st." It's not constructive whatsoever. If you have a thought, please tell us what that thought is. Don't just say "I have a thought," with nothing to follow.

Dude. Here's the thing. You have absolutely no call in telling me what to type or not to type. Sometimes, I will put in a hmmmm if I think the ad is okay but could have been better. Sometimes because I seriously think it's not worth saying much more than a hmmmm.
Where the F is it said I ought not type only a 'hmmmm'? Let Ivan tell me it's not okay to put it in, and I might think about it. I am not forcing you to read my comments, am I? And I am not asking you to go light on your intellectual jerking off on ads here, am I?

Get the hell outta my tracks, if it so bothers you.

"...I think the ad is okay but could have been better."

Sorry bro, but that simple statement right there is much clearer than "hmmm..." Helps to clarify everything, and possibly lend a helping hand to the revisions of the ad. I'm just saying that your inital statement could have read "Hmmm...I think I like it." Or, "Hmmm....this blows!" Or, "Hmmm...I'd like some macaroni right now." What's the point of posting something so ambiguous that it could be followed up with absolutely anything?

Perhaps ambiguity is not such bad idea, you know. It opens channels of debate. And conversation. A hmmmm there has kept this discussion of ours alive long after the ad moved from the front page.

What if I had passed a judgement then and you had either agreed or not. The debate would have ended there.

I like being ambiguous. I like not saying exactly what I have in mind, because I like to see what others think too. What they feel about a certain subject. Or, perhaps, I don't think there's anything worth saying. A hmmmm is as good, in fact better, in such circumstances, as anything more substantial.
