    You guys show up more than the cameras do, with the depth of field and all that black. But you guys look friendly which would make me feel like if I was into cameras and lived where you lived I'd come to your club meeting and see what it was all about.

    Concept is good but clipping the heads, unfocussed foreground and no separation from the background can't be fixed by editing.
    Take at least a step or two back,get the top of their heads in , shoot at a smaller aperture get the lenses more in focus and put some light on the background for separation.

    I agree with T ... you need your head and a bit more foreground focus.

    I agree the depth of field is way to shallow.

    The cameras/lenses in the foreground should be sharply focused and nicely lit since the photo's purpose is to generate interest in a new photography club.

    I think the background is fine as it is, but be sure to clone out that corner of the chair back behind your right shoulder (camera left).

    Oh! OK
    I get it now.
    It now seems you didn't really want opinions.

    This is a good advertisement photo if you're more about people than equipment. The black cap being one with the black background is a slight bit problematic and awkward ... after all this is a "photoclub" and you need some allegiance to good photography. Other than that good job.

    The only thing bothersome about the out of focus lenses is that they are in the foreground and I sort of want to glance at those and then go to the faces that are lighter and obviously the main subject. But having that foreground out of focus makes me stop and check that my glasses are on.

    However, for an ad it can work out just fine as that lower part could be dropped in with a lower opacity and text added.
