One of the best pics of the challenge...Wonderful texture and nice depth of field (although in my opinion, having more of the shoe in focus, either more of the lace area or more of the front tear would increase the texture feel even more?)
But even the bit of ground adds to the gritty feel!
Very well done. I hope you score high!

very good rendering of detail and texture. The blown out background in the upper left corner is a big distraction. You might also want to darken the shadows to get more contrast. Midtones are great, though.

I just mentioned in the last picture I voted on that it looked like the boots would fall apart if you touch them from their age but wow, you've even gotten a better one. I like the close up and angled setup you have here. You probably could have shot the entire boot and saw the textures but this and its color adds impact.

Good luck

I'm really glad I decided to vote on them all - otherwise I would have missed this one as it came up almost last. The use of B&W is excellent - tonal range well done. Like the crop/composition and POV. The DOF works for me. 8 - good luck in the challenge!

Shots like these just make me happy... they remind me that the reason I love black & white so much is the character it adds to the subject. The impact of this would not have been the same in color. Great shot!

It is nice to see your boots are as experienced as your camera.

Great shot. Black and white is perfect for this image. The crop is really well done and the detail of the leather is terrific. I might up the contrast just a touch but otherwise realy nice. 8
