Thought this would have placed better. Gave it a 7.

The in focus step in the foreground grabs much more attention than the shoes.

Nice shot, but I wish the shoes were in focus rather than the stairs!

The composition and focus is not doing anything to help draw attention to your subject "shoes". First rule of photography is usually to do something that draws attention to your subject, iyou generally use out of focus to draw attention away from objects that you don't want noticed, so this ends up being a photo of "steps".

I'd like to see the focus on the shoes instead of the stairs.

i love natural gradients formed by steps.

GREAT use of shallow DOF!! Works just wonderful here!!!
I bet you're being hummered though... people here wouldn't recognize a good shot even if it fell on their heads... 10

Focus in the wrong place. Could have been much better. As a general rule the shoes should have been nearer the foreground with the focus disappearing behind them.

Sorry. On a challenge for shoes, I think the shoes should be the main focus, or at least close to it. The first step appears as if it is in focus, but the shallow DOF hurts the image quite a bit.

very unique execution, I like it

is you subject shoes or stairs. To me stairs, so a low score.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Presumably, the shoes are the main interest in this shot. Why are they out of focus. I really like the texture of the steps, and it has the possibility of being a really good shot, but it's all foreground with nothing in it.

nice concept although i feel the background should have been in focus as opposed to the foreground.. maybe this was intentional?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/02/2005 12:45:19 PM
This has the wrong subject in focus. My eye is drawn to the step instead of the walker.

Great stuff, I like it. 9

steps are not the criteria for this challenge, sorry
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/01/2005 10:02:49 PM
I would have focused on the shoes since the title refers to them
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/01/2005 06:53:09 PM
the shoes in this photo are so far away. why are they like that. the focus of this photo seems to be on the stairs.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/01/2005 04:53:41 PM
i dont like the depth of field with this one. a nice all-around sharp photo would have done it better for me.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Focus! Focus!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

sorry couldn't give a high score because the subject was so out of focus it actually sent my eyes funny. Good Idea tho'
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Nice texture. I like how the feet are out of focus, but you may have wanted to bring them a little closer. Title is boring.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

You got your leading lines. You got your selective focus. You got your abstracted subject. You got your creative composition. You got your story within a frame. What's not to love about this? A real good shot to my eyes. 8

09/01/2005 01:12:37 AM
well you have good focus on the step
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Unfocused and boring.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

the stairs are cool but I don't really like how the person's blurry.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/31/2005 06:34:26 PM
why is the subject matter not within the cameras DOF?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/31/2005 11:58:39 AM
Shoudlnt the focus have been the shoes?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/31/2005 07:23:57 AM
cool but I like the shoes to be sharp 6
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/31/2005 03:00:31 AM
Since shoes were the theme I think they should be the focal point of the shot not the steps.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/31/2005 01:29:09 AM
focusing on the anti-subject of this photo does absolutely nothing good for it. coulda been an ok 5. now its a 3, sorry. if you were trying to illustrate the intended path of the 'walking shoes' a different angle/composition and making the shoes more apparent would all help.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/31/2005 12:09:03 AM
I like your idea here!
Something that I think would improve it would be making the second and/or third steps the ones in focus. Having only the bottom edge of the photo in focus takes away from the rest of the image.
