Nice shot and arrangement - It looks like there is a bit of processing around the slippers, though - or is that just the floor??

There is something wrong about this picture, but honestly can't put my finger on it, I know where you heading with this composition, the dreamy old ballerina shoes. But somehow there is kind of 3D feeling in it, which contradict the old feeling, not sure if my point is clear ..
Beside that, it is a really nice try .. 7

Classic art object with ties set in just the right combination of casual and posed. Excellent leading lines, and wise decision to process black and white.

Simple, but it speaks very loud. Makes me think of a young girl, who has not put away her shoes after practice.
