Composition: I really like the framing chosen for this image. The shoelace is perhaps a touch close at the very top, but it still looks ok. Having the knot of the shoelace centred gives the image a nice balance.

Technical Quality: The colour is very nice. The light is also quite good (a very small piece of over exposure at the top of the shoe - inside the loop of the lace, but nothing significant). The depth of field is quite shallow, however since nothing is deliberately blurred is looks more accidental than deliberate - thankfully most of the image is quite sharp. Exposure is wonderful - neither too light nor too dark.

Meeting Challenge: It's not an extreme macro, but its close enough for me. Also, given the shallow depth of field I suspect the camera was very close to the shoe taking this shot.

Creativity: It's a nice shot. The shape of the shoelace creates interest and the texture of the shoe itself is lovely. It kind of makes me what to know who Phoebe is.

Border / Title: The border is very subtle - it doesn't add much to the image, but it doesn't distract from it either so no problem. The title is nice - like I said, it makes me what to know who Phoebe is.

Overall: It's a very well executed photo. You obviously put some thought into the lighting and composition is wonderful. The shoe has an old quality that adds a lot of texture and interest to the shot. I might have considered trying to get the entire shoe into focus - perhaps moving the camera back and zooming in to compensate. Well done.

This image has such mood that the shoelace goes beyond being a shoelace, making me want to know more about both it and Phoebe. Nice job.

Hummm, this is a yummy shot. I do think a bit more light would be a good thing, but I love it as it is. Well done.
