Always look at a lady's shoes before you ask them to dance ;-)

Hi Johanna...perhaps a little too contrasty, but I like the angle and the subject. Reflection a good idea.

I love those shots that I don't automatically fully understand, but that I want to keep looking at to figure out what's going on. This is a perfect example!

Yup, goes to show that on DPC if it isn't in your face the majority don't get it and click 1,2,3,4 and move on...don't be disheartened. This was a fab shot and I gave it an 8. I'm smelling a posthumous...

beautiful use of varied texture and color, I like that you used a narrow DOF to have only clear focus on the pattered shoe. Gains almost an abstract quality the longer one observes...a top 5 no doubt...9

from the height of these more like a pole dancer (just kidding...) excellent shot...well done...pulled off the lighting and tilt to your advantage.

At first I saw legs. Then I came back 24 hours later and saw heels on a mirrored surface and understood your skewed/tilted shot and bumped another 2 for creativity and subtlety. I didn't like the dark lighting but ignored this for the artsy-ness of the shot.

The photo is technically awesome. The ligh drapes across the object and there is beautiful color. I love the dark shadows. However, I have no idea what I am looking at and can't tell if it is a tool of a tango dancer. I am guessing it is a wardrobe?? Can't really tell. It would have been better to provide some context.

Colorful but, what is is, what's the story?
