thanks all of you for your comments, the background was surely a problem, thanks for pointing that out!

yeah "Eurêka" is the greek word for "I found" and is what Archimedes said when he found out about objects floating in water, in fact it's said he was taking a bath and that when he found out he went running nude on the streets shouting that he found

from wikipedia [ //en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Archimedes ]
He is reputed [...] to have discovered the principles of density and buoyancy, also known as Archimedes' principle, while taking a bath (thereupon taking to the streets naked calling "eureka" - "I have found it!"); and to have invented the irrigation device known as Archimedes' screw.

I'm not sure why you entitled it as you did... is it because your shoes have (finally) learned to walk on water? The second shoe detracts some and perhaps a longer dof would have been helpful.

i like the coloring and water reflection, but the white object in background is distracting

amazing shot, great concept... but the object in the backgroud is very distracting and takes away from the otherwise flawless shot

What's this??????

Impressed with the light, composition and colouration of the shot, the background probably lets it down and leaves it with a middle score I'm afraid

Wow I like this picture, I like the colors that are used in this picture. I especially like the metallic blue for the shoe! Good luck in this challenge.

Heehee... very nice. Careful w/the background, though. The white box in corner just doesn't go.

Great idea, but I found that opening? in the background a little distracting - maybe its just me, but my eyes kept going to that background everytime I glanced at the shoe.
