    ive tried my hand at advertising. This is the first time ive tried it and know nothing other than pure instinct. Id be ever grateful for opinions on my attempt.

    This is missing something, The logo out of focus is distracting and does not make me want to eat an orange.
    I would try to get some of orange in the picture. The peel is not something that would meke me want an orange, no matter what logo is on it.

    I don't understand what these two photos try to say. What is the subject matter?

    Regards

    To try to be helpful, your appature was a little small. That's why parts of the shot are out of focus.

    aperture was fine, but the POF was wrong.

    The last thing in any advertising shot that a company would want out of focus is their logo. But in 99% of cases the logo would be added in the design process, not in the photo.

    yeah. that was uncalled for. anyway, i really like your concept here. yes the logo needs to be in focus but i think the idea is good!

    I woulda thought that POV would be less important if the appature was larger?

    The smaller the aperture is (The bigger aperture #), the greater the depth of field is. In this case, a smaller aperture (like F16) will probably fix the out-of-focus logo problem. But if you want the logo in focus but the backgrouns out of focus, then adjust your focus to be on the logo instead.

    F1.4 Large aperture=shallow DoF
    F32 Small aperture=maximum Dof, basic stuff, read your manuals or get a good book like Micheal Langfords, "Basic photography" or "Advanced photography",it'll prevent you making simple mistakes when taking a shot if you understand the basics, I know that in this digital era everyone and his/her dad thinks they're photographers but there's more to it than firing the shutter.
