Agree with Zach that less is more. The logo is also too small to be effective at that size. Need something very simple with only 2 3/8 to play with. Not that this is the answer, but needs to be easy on the eyes and not very busy at all.
Yeah - that's perfect, I think. The picture is perfect and the tag succinctly describes the glory of splitting.
You always have to consider your ad on a page with a zillion other ads being read by someone who doesn't know he should care about what you're selling. Most people don't carefull examine every ad in a mag. If you cram a bunch of stuff on the ad, at a glance it will just look like a giant blur and the eye will move on to something easier to grasp.
Steeleman's ad is eye-catching and gets the point across in the tenth of a second that you have available to you.
I know you're probably not planning on using that picture for an ad, but just in case.... it is copyrighted, which I found out after I posted it on biglines, and got politely chewed out..... just so you know.

I was gonna ask if we could use it nomad, people seem to really dig it. Unfortunately we won't be able to pay to use it though. Do you think the photog would be happy with getting the photo credit and seeing his name/work in print?
