I don't like advertising - PhotoShop/Paint-job


The message (to housewives) is "Which girl is your little girl?"
Followed by the answer, which is the brand.

There's a lot to see in there that divides the two characters into a back and white opposition. It's skewed two people to present the one who's mother does use (that) detergent as better.

For the sake of balance, I decided to have fun by introducing some colour - white is a bit boring no matter how bright it is.

try adjusting the levels some to make the black pop out and the background white

All the colour is level-adjusted.
The reason I've not turned up the B&W contrast is to reduce the contrast/conflict between the two characters - it's a nasty advertising technique.
Secondly, white needs to be seen as just another shade of grey - nothing is perfect, and life would be boring if it were otherwise.

i dont know if its my monitor but it looks like she had some stout kool-ade to drink with the bright color

Yes some of the levels were shoved too far - saturated, my error.

Hmm, a kindergarten teacher may look at this and refer you to the counselors. You should go occupy Wall Street.

How would might a kindergarten teacher look at it if I'd added a cigarette?

Nowadays, they would ask if you had a spare. They are stressed out by being relegated to underpaid babysitters encumbered by a myriad of administrative rules on what should be taught to your kid and how they go about doing it.

Yea teachers!
I have a friend who is a teacher on half-term, boy does she like to party when she ain't got to get up tomorrow....

The first party I attended featuring alcohol was hosted by a kindergarten teacher.

Boy can she go.

She didn't really seem to mind that I was underage. Strange how morals can go out the window when outside of the public school premises.
Playing devil's advocate out of boredom, morals and positive law don't always coincide.
