Not much to say here. that I know i'll get a ton of comments on the tag that is too visible for some. I'll also get a comment or two about the fact that there is nothing on the tag. I like it, not sure if it's challenge worth it, but really who gives a damn. I like it :)

Congratulations on your 6th placing. A very impressive image with that mortal exemplification that stirs deep into the soul.

Love your comments, "but really who gives a damn, I like it".
Stick with that and more often than not you will do well.
Congratulations on your top ten finish!

this must be the one i read about in the forums that people said looked neat imaged. it does look that way....where are the wrinkles on the bottom of those feet? :)
nice lighting, decent focus, semi-original theme and composition. well maintained feet :)

we had the same idea. I shot the "feet first" view as well, but them my model suggested an alternative image which I submitted instead. The lighting is very effective here and the exaggerated point of view looks good - wide angle lens? I think you could hve added some simple text at least to the toe tag, but the reason for it is obvious and words would add clutter so this simple and effective image, so maybe you choice correctly. The feet themselves are the only distraction to me in the shot. Something about them - too much NeatImage? - makes it look puffy and baby like. Not much of a negative, though - this is a terrific image.

I like the lighting and the composition. Those toes are quite pretty - does that person ever walk?

Genius! Pure genius. The execution is perfect. The plasticy feel of the feet is interesting and nifty. Intentionally over-NeatImaged? Or maybe the model just has really smooth feet. I love this shot. Jacko? 10

Love the contrast ... kind of creepy but clinical as well.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

for such a "raw" sort of image (a dead body with a toe tag) i think its too "smooth" looking. A little more grittiness (by way of grain or noise maybe?) would have worked well for the overall message.

My favorite out of the bunch, I hope it ribbons! Hopefully people wont mark you down because of the subject matter (9)

These corpse photos give me the creeps, though they seem to be very well done.

Very good composition and great work on the black and white treatment. Like they say, dead feet are still feet :)

Very Film Noir lighting - good effect and appropriate here. I like the slightly off-kilter composition. The feet just look too smooth - neat image?

Nice pov and detail

I love how soft and smooth this looks... I wish my feet were that smooth!! :) Good composition.

great shot , good composition, great colors

Excellent idea, love the lighting and DOF, sharp lines on that tag! Looks like too much NeatImage on the feet, or maybe those are rubber feet? The tag looks sharp, so maybe you used rubber feet. Would like the camera to be a bit lower.

great contrast and lighting in the photo!

This is a beautiful shot. Are those feet real? They are so perfect. They almost have a ghostly glow to them. The lighitng is spectacular!!!

Excellent composition with wonderful effects of noise reduction software to give the feet a lifeless appearance. Lighting/shadows are very effective as well. Great job!

very nice tones, but too soft for this type of image.
