Greetings from the Critique Club :)

Hi Photochix....

The challenge is met nicely with this photo... I particularly liked some of the images in this challenge that took alternative paths from the 'normal' modes of transportation that everyone would normally think about.

I think you did a good job of composing the legs/feet on the right hand side of the frame... that definitely works better than centering in a horizontal frame. I think this photo could also potentially be strong with centered legs/feet in a vertical frame, allowing the feet to fall on the bottom horizontal third line...

I think this composition could use a little color also... The skin tone of the legs stand out nicely, but if there was some other element of color here, i think it would benefit the image. Maybe some colored socks or something would create that little surprise element that makes the photo really jump.

I also think the shoe may be a little close to the bottom of the frame for comfort... A little extra breathing room there could strengthen the composition as well...

Keep up the good work :)

Interesting idea. I would have liked to see more toe here. The location could probably have been more interesting.

Nice composition - 3 levels of gray, with a tiny corner of green! And walking right down the line are a very interesting pair of shoes. Wish the shoes were completely sharp.

Good composition, idea. Good shot over all.
I think the focus is a little soft of the legs and the bottom is a tight crop.

Him? Looks like feet of the feminine variety to me. Nice light and texture in the rocks. Boring subject, (sorry)

the shoes dont really transport him.. his legs do. i'm sure he could still walk without shoes.
