Wow this was a painful contest. I had no inspiration whatsoever. Got desperate and added some visual interest form the local har har store =)

nice work. there is a good consistent feel in the combination of coloration, lighting, and texture. can't say I feel like the roaches do much for me.

Oh, yuk, yuk yuk, but stll, very good composition, lighting, and clarity. The subject could almost be "bugs" here instead of shoes, except the color of the shoes demands your attention.

Very nice, subtle coloring. I wish I knew how to achieve such an effect. Nice nice.

Ugh - I detest those things.
The desat does nothing for me in this composition (assuming it is desaturated) some colour may have lifted it. The white shoe is bright enough to remain the focus point.

This is kind of gross, as we hate roaches, yet it is very interesting and the more I look at it, the more I like it. The slight desaturation of color works. The contrast of the stripes of the shoes is interesting along with the texture of the leather shoe and the ragged hem of the jeans. I'm upping my score upon 2nd review.

Gnarly. The way you handled the color is nice, as well as the smoothe gradient for the background. The image is put together well with a nice combination of shoe style with the weathered jeans. I'd like to see this in the top 5 to 10. Good luck!

Eiyuu. I hope they are fake. Think the image would have been better without them. Liked the ragged leg bottom and the stitching coming out of the shoe. Great lighting too. Kind of makes you wonder what really lives in a bowling alley.

I would not have understood this photo without the title. It is unique.

Ew is the word that comes to mind for me. A creative and interesting photo though. The focus is good, and the colors are nice. Just wondering though, are they coming out of your PANTS?
09/01/2005 09:38:33 PM
Ugh. Unpleasant to look at. Good tones.
09/01/2005 11:27:17 AM
YUK! *grin* nice color. Pants are great for subject; they match very well. Lighting was good.

Nice placement but EWWWW ROACHES. You're suppose to step on them not let them crawl up your jeans.
08/31/2005 10:08:42 PM
I would have liked this better without the roaches
08/31/2005 08:09:01 PM
Ewwww you theres roaches everywhere. I like the toned down colors and the gray background. I think that this could be in a denim or shoe ad. The roadches are the only thing that I dont like about this photo.

I don't get the reference in the title. But as it stands I guess you're trying to convey a creepy feeling with the cockroaches, yes? If so the effect seems less 'creepy', and more 'slightly untidy', given the chice of slightly scuffed shoe, and slightly frayed jean.

you are brave - i hate them;
very creative - i like it;
08/31/2005 08:31:54 AM
