My Abbie Doodle in some Marine Corps boots... not sure how this will fly with the voters becuae it is a bit of a shoehorn, but I really like it, so...

I'm hoping to get at least a 6...

Hello neighbor:-) (Commenting on those above and below me as a matter of practice now. )

What shoehorn? It fits perfectly with invoking the thought of a young child 'following' in his/her father's footsteps. Or at least it captures the idea of how children will play dress-up to act like adults. This is a cute and wonderful image to pair up with Father's Day in June. I do like the stark white backdrop for it makes the boots, daddy's shoes, stand out as one of the main focal points. However, the pale skin hues of the legs of the child tend to get overpowered a tad. Not sure how one would lessen the stark tendencies of the white backdrop washing out the legs other than somehow introducing a greyscale. How that would be achieved I am not quite sure (scratches head). The only other thought is that you could have slightly changed the title to 'In her Daddy's Shoes' and had a bit of the hem of a frilly but colorful dress showing just above the knees. It would introduce a different color and perhaps play down the starkness of the white backdrop enough so that the skin tones are not as overpowered.

I like the picture however, I think it is too plain. Add some color to it.

Yippee for you!! Looks like it is tilting a little low on the right but still a great great shot (and it could so be my eyes so I'm not letting it affect my vote :-)

A tad bit washed out... Not a good balance of lights and darks which I don't think really help this photo.

Top 10 for me so far. GREAT concept, nicely done, although the legs might be just a tad overexposed. I think the total lack of shadow or contour makes this shot less dynamic than it could be with some added depth.

Wonderful idea, and definitely a calendar idea instead of just a free study shot. Kudos! Legs seem a little soft & a little too pink, but 10 for idea & overall shot.
