I really like the concept here, but I feel that the lighting was far too harsh for the subject. There's a child -like innocence lying in the photo that could easily be brought oout if it weren't for the prison wall spotlight effect you have. Now I find lighting very difficult: I don't have any, but a couple of lamps or simply shooting outside on a cloudy day (perfect for still life) would really have boosted your score.

BTW thanks for your comment; I completely disagree with you, but it's a matter of opinion.

The bubbles are a great addition....like it.

Nice shot. I wish it were a bit more in focus, though, and a bit brighter. Also, I find the edge of the window rather distracting.

What a happy image. Like the bubbles and contrast of the green and pink on the shoes. Nice composition.

the bubbles are such a great addition to this! I have issues with the texture in the floor, and the frame on the wall, but the bubbles are such a cool surprise overall I just love it, 7

I like the idea of these 2 elements together. The execution could be a lot better however. Take the focus, use the writing on the side of the boot as a guide. and the composition has a few distracting and superfluous elements like the leaves in the bottom left, and the picture top right.

unusual concept, well put together

great concept, i can't get a feel for the composition though and the light is confusing - but the bubbles, colouring and the idea are great

I really like this picture because of the bubbles and the color of the shoes. It reminds me of some kind of fantasy...like magic shoes...or something. The lighting is a little off, but it's still uber awesome. =)

this photo is cool- i love it. it would have been better if it was more in focus.

Great picture. Though the bubbles are a bit random, they do kind of add 'something' to the picture. And the shoes are at an interesting angle. The wall looks a little too gray though, it might've looked better with less gray. (Makes the picture seem kind of foggy) Kudos to your creativity. (Note: The right shoe looks like it's going to eat you! Aaa! :P)

mystical. a little sharper would have rocked, but its hard to tell at such a small size with jpeg.
08/31/2005 05:13:57 PM
nice - looks like an ad
08/31/2005 12:06:22 PM
I like it!!!!!!

FUN! I think it would have a bit more impact if the counter were solid and there wasn't the corner of a painting behind the right shoe. This has great potential.
