If I wasn't so rushed I would have a more blurred background... perhaps more leg... etc. For some reason the color is washed out after I submitted it but not when I view it via lightroom or CS4. I don't know why but I don't have enough time to do anything about it.

Greetings from the critique club.

My first reaction when I saw your photo was the reflection, its a great reflection, and I would have loved it if it was more the focus of the image. The shoes themselves are great, and I like the choice of socks.

As you mentioned in your description, the background is a drawback. Not so much that it isnt blurred, but because the cloth itself is wrinkled and folded. An all black background would have been nice as well.

The score overall is pretty decent too. You placed 27th out of 120, or the 78th percentile... not too bad at all.

Keep shooting and submitting.

Like the reflections but the way the floor seems to slope is distracting.

I like this shot, but i think that the color of the background takes away some focus on the shoes
