Would make a great shot for a Christmas Catalog. I edited my pink comment out after explanation. :) Adding also what a great Christmas card this would make.

real cute catalog page for hosiery. The white background was a pefect choice.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/18/2005 05:39:06 PM
I think the colors (especially reds) are a bit too oversaturated IMO. though I give you a 7, cause I really like the idea!

very well done! the background seperation looks nice and nothing is blown out. the subject matter is very interesting and the posing is done well for two of the three. the left most socks don't look to be very comfortable and it looks like the model may be un an uneven plane from the other two. thats ok though, this image really stands out in this challenge and I think a top ten finish is in order.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/14/2005 07:53:00 PM
Good one! Colors are very vibrant!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/14/2005 05:58:19 PM
Great, pic. Love the contrast and lighting. Don't know if it is my eye's, but there seems to be a pink color cast on the shot. Still one of my tops.

I love the picture, I would have enjoyed it a little more if it were flipped.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/13/2005 10:21:53 PM
i really like this pic. the colors stand out and the feeling is fun! simple but effective great work. if it were to be scored in my books it would be a ten.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/13/2005 10:16:18 PM
What an adorable idea! I think I would buy a print of this photo to hang in my house during Christmas time...where? I don't know. But I would LOVE it! The whole idea is just absolutely adorable!

Lighting is nice, nice focus on the stockings there. The border adds alot to it or there would have been too much white space. Love the different colors of the stockings and the reddish shade of the background.

super
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/13/2005 04:05:05 PM
This is a fun image. My only beefs are a) I feel like either all the legs should be showing skin or none of them should, and b) the socks should be roughly the same length---the short pair bothers me. I like the high key background as a foil for the bright colors.
