Beautiful handling of photography in post-process.

(And I especially like the foreground objects forming a reach-out-and-touch proscenium as they do in all ads in this series. That's a simple, effective AD choice that is definitive in the success of the series.)

Kudos.

Art direction is perfect. A great way of messing with pictures. A ten from me.

The product is tourism, luis. "See Chikmagalur", "See Hampi" and so on. Or that's what I get.

Actually i have visited these places. It was an empire which was excavated from underneath the earth... hence "Discover new worlds". It is truly a mesmerizing place.

And then GOD said...
Let there be creativity!!!

I'm sure hardly anyone is going to agree with me when I say that I don't much care for this series... But, so it goes: I don't much care for this series. To me, any kid with a camera and a lick of photoshop experience could take an average photo and convert it into one of these ads.
That's just my humble opinion, though...

"...any kid with a camera and a lick of photoshop experience..." You're kidding, right...?

I don't think he was kidding. In fact, I let it pass without rebuttal when I saw it because I figured no amount of talk could reach someone who was capable of being so wrong about any one thing.

I see tons of excruciating Photoshop retouches by amateurs. I see a pretty fair number of bad ones by pros. There's not a thing here to be ashamed of, on the other hand. It's solid work.

I find his comment... ironic.
