So these are my legs, a self portrait taken with a wireless remote. Took one picture on the Wednesday when the challenge was announced but later noticed a white thread sticking out from underneath the sofa.

Had to do it all over again, and I really liked the pose so I had to get that right again. I'm the worst model ever, so it took about a week, even with the camera hooked up to my computer so I could see every picture straight away and adjust my pose from there

Quite happy 10hrs in voting. Going up, slow but steady. Started off with 3(!) which I know this picture doesn't deserve.

Got a comment about the shoes and I must say that yes, they are quite comfy because of the platform, but after 8 hrs working + an afterwork pint/drink with people from the office your feet will hurt a bit... But if I had to spend all that money again I would definitely buy the same shoes.

Very nice shot. I like the angle of the floor in relation to the couch. Nice processing.

Interesting shoes!!! They look cruel. I see a bit of a pink cast to the wood that isn't appealing to me.

There have been a lot of shots like this in this challege, I'm not a huge fan, its just not creative enough for me.

Trianguls in the composition provide a sense of suspense and direction. I will be interested in others comments about this photo. It might look even better in B&W.

I totally dig those tights!! Killer shoes too. What's amazing is that with the platform, they are actually quite comfy. This would be cool in a BW conversion as well. I like how the leather sofa ties in with her leather shoes.
