Please don't be discouraged by your first entry. It takes a while to get to know what folks like here.

Your vision of the boots as a good subject was spot on! It just needs a bit of tweaking of the technique... and before you know it, you'll be scoring with the 'high rollers' here. *grin*

Pay attention to a recurring theme in the comments and work on those things one item at a time until you conquer that (ignore the odd ones! *grin* ). Compete with yourself on your score. Can you score just a tad bit higher next entry? Then a bit higher the next? It's all about learning, you know.

I'm looking forward to seeing how you progress. Enter again! :)

Good title and idea but clipped on the left and right, too small, out of focus, distracting elements around the boots, and the flash gives harsh lights and shadows.

boots seem a bit out of focus, and the background is distracting

The composition and focus could be better here.. .but I like the title and the tribute.

repeat after me: the camera-mounted flash is not my friend...the camera-mounted flash is not my friend...

I'm afraid it just doesn't look like a whole lot of thought was put into this one. Yes, it meets the challenge, but being out of focus, with a distracting book in the background, poorly composed and smaller than the allowable size, it just needed a little more effort to be a viable entry.

Pretty much a snapshot IMO. Cool boots thou...have never seen them with that type of tread/sole before.

Really too bad about the focus, could have been an interesting shot.
