being banned from the forums is a blessing, not a curse

my predictions did not come true.
its just a picture of a shoe.
rotated to the left, just for you.
it kind of pixelated when i adjusted the hue.
im banned from the forums, still emotionally blue.

So simple, yet so artistic - Great selection.

I dig the picture -- not so keen on the title, I have to admit. This looks a little pixellated and not quite as sharply in focus as maybe it could be. Love the color of the shoelace and the way the one appears to be suspended in the air.

When I grow up I want shoes like that.
07/21/2002 08:16:00 PM
Reasonably well executed, but it's a shoe
07/21/2002 04:37:00 PM
Decent rotated shot of a slightly worn and somewhat dirty shoe. Perhaps it is a cultural thing, but I don't get the connection with the title.
07/21/2002 01:10:00 PM
a background texture instead of black could have been interesting.
07/20/2002 02:10:00 AM
Smelly, colorful maybe, but phallic? nice concept, well-executed 6 sjgleha

Hormonal teenager? I like the 90 degree turn, but the light on the heel, plus the shoelace are dead give-aways. Very good shot of the tennis shoe. Without the 90 degree turn, I would score this 5, with the turn, 7 Swash

Great color-contrast and the vertical position is nice too, but.... shouldn’t the string be pointing downwards :)
07/19/2002 03:52:00 PM
that shoelace sure defies gravity doesn't it...did you take this in outer space?
07/19/2002 05:06:00 AM
Stupid. Good colors
07/18/2002 06:14:00 PM
A simple capture technically well executed.
07/18/2002 08:09:00 AM
nice color but if shoe is on end the shoelace is defying gravity
07/17/2002 11:13:00 PM
The fog was so thick, I could not see a foot in front of my face...well done.
07/17/2002 05:30:00 PM
Talented. Great photography. It is definately NOT just a photo of a sneaker - there is much more here. very creative! Wonderful work!
07/17/2002 03:00:00 PM
Interesting use of image rotation, though i thought they went out of business.
07/17/2002 01:30:00 PM
a shoe is phallic? That's a new thought! GOod picture.
07/17/2002 10:44:00 AM
i like this shoe.
07/17/2002 10:19:00 AM
great title. ;)
07/17/2002 09:08:00 AM
You have a weird perception of what is phallic.
07/17/2002 08:39:00 AM
um well let see - its a shoe - its red and its not really a very interesting photograph I'm affraid
07/16/2002 11:16:00 PM
daniel, this is great :) this is gonna go on my favorite photos list after this challenge... good work! = 10 - jmsetzler

Hmmm...that had never occurred to me. You're right. Great colors, contrast and focus. 9 Lisa
07/16/2002 07:16:00 PM
this is a pretty rad photo. i love the solid background with the stark shoe. the blurry laces kind of bug me, but all in all this is one of my favorites. 9--amitchell
07/16/2002 03:30:00 PM
interesting concept
07/15/2002 10:23:00 PM
great detail
07/15/2002 09:19:00 PM
I love the picture but the title is awesome! 9
07/15/2002 05:10:00 PM
Not sure I understand the "phallic" reference, but, that aside, the photo is sharp and intriguing. The lace suspended in air is a nice tough.
07/15/2002 03:22:00 PM
I would like this better if it was a clean shoe I think. That's the girl in me:)
07/15/2002 03:15:00 PM
the discrepancy between the shoelace (dirty and worn) and the shoe (slightly schmutzy) distracts this viewer from a technically excellent photo
07/15/2002 03:00:00 PM
Your title for this made me laugh out loud. Thanks.
07/15/2002 01:42:00 PM
Good show of color.
07/15/2002 01:16:00 PM
lol Love the title, creative shot and good color. Maybe a little over sharpened, but good work. Kee
07/15/2002 10:32:00 AM
Nice color, crisp image but phallic??? High score anyway.
07/15/2002 03:43:00 AM
Creative... could be sharper though.
07/15/2002 02:38:00 AM
I like how you captured the lace still in the air, though a little more clarity would have been nice. And please, no need to share your name in the title. Lastly, this image could have been comressed a lot less, would have resulted in less noise in the red of the shoe.
07/15/2002 01:21:00 AM
Well, it's not phallic from the top...
