Dirty Boots - Sonic Youth
Greetings from the Critique Club!
First off, good job meeting the challenge. No disputes there. It's a cute picture, however, that said, the photos isn't very intriguing. It doesn't do a great job at keeping the viewer's attention. It's a good photo, but not particularly great.
Angle: I like the POV you chose for this shot. Getting down on the ground can be a great way to get a unique capture.
Composition: I like the crop you chose. Gives the user a defined focal point. Behind the boot on the left, there's something flesh-toned in the background. Not sure what it is.. but it's a bit distracting.
Subject: The boots themselves are pretty flat and uninteresting. I wonder if work boots would have been better.. Probably not on DPC. DPC voters tend to like bright colors. Perhaps adding a kid in the boots, covered in mud? Or stomping in a muddy puddle?
Lighting: Seems a bit hazy and dark. It was probably a cloudy day.. but would have bumped the exposure or levels in post processing. Bumping the saturation would help too.
Good idea, just needs a few tweaks to make it great.
