This is not a reflection - they are two shoes - one on top of the other, that's the reason the bottom shoe cannot be shown complete!

It is lit by the candle and a hand held LED flash light using which I light painted the glass shoe.

*Hello from Sid and the Critique Club*

An original and creative image that fully meets the challenge.

What an amazing pair of shoes, as you say, fit for a princess! I've often thought light and glass were made for each other, there is always potential within them for a good photography and here you have found it with your candle light and your own light painting, you have managed to light so many facets in interesting ways, well done.

I like the black background but like your commenter without knowing otherwise it is natural to perceive this as a reflection. This is where I think you had even more potential, it would have been nice to see the pair together reflected in the black glass of a table. As it is you still have a great image with a good well controlled exposure, very appealing. I think it deserved a higher place, I can only assume there was some amazing entries.

Thanks for an interesting submission, Sid

very adequate for a princess!
I wonder what it might look like with the complete reflection - looks somewhat incomplete this way
