I'm so glad this won a ribbon - It was the only one of the winners that I actually got a chance to vote on, and I knew it should be at the top. Congratulations!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Love this shot! Somehow I didn't see it when I voted....weird...but congratulations!!

  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/07/2005 09:04:47 AM
Congratulations! I didn't vote but if I had this would have come out top for the emotion it evokes: a nice feel of child-like playfulness, a simple enjoyment of togetherness and freedom, the differences between the bare feet and shoe reflecting the idea of each to his or her own. I don't know if I'm making sense but anyway, well done.

This is lovely! Congrats on your ribbon
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/07/2005 04:45:47 AM
I didnt see this one in the voting, but can see why it did well. Very fun and beautifully framed. Your eye is immediately pulled to the shoe with the colour difference and positioning.

Well done and congrats on the ribbon.

Bumping up to a big 10, one of my absolute favorites, so well composed, looks like a fun setup to shoot.

Great idea, and good composition. NIce use of DOF to focus on the feet.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/04/2005 06:47:59 PM

This was really well spotted! The anonymity of the people is good, it keeps us looking and thinking. Good composition and lighting. The toning works well too.
A couple of minor niggles, the bright spots in the background, detract a little from the otherwise excellent picture. Still gets an 8 ;)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/04/2005 12:36:48 AM
on my second look i am revising the points to 9
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/03/2005 10:32:16 PM
I like the tones you chose to use - makes your photo seem...timeless. Well composed, and my eyes can imagine a cool lake or river just below those toes...
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/03/2005 02:29:25 PM
I love this . Great sepia. The angle and perspective is really good. Upon 2nd review, I'm really like this as much as I did the first time. The DOF is perfectly achieved. I'm upping the score.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/03/2005 01:20:39 PM
Lovely shot! ~10
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/03/2005 12:29:45 AM
The title fits... So does this photo. One of the best in the theme.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/02/2005 10:37:20 PM
Very cleverly done! There is only ONE shoe visible, and it only occupies a small portion of the photo. Yet via composition, leading lines, the color (or lack thereof), the use of patterns etc, you managed to draw my eyes to that one show. Good job!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/02/2005 07:48:32 PM
Like the juxtaposition, the sepia worked well too. Nice
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/02/2005 11:56:59 AM
This is just wonderful! I am right there. I hope the kid with the shoe on is in the process of removing them. Very strong image. 10

This is a great shot! I love the contrast and the focus.

09/02/2005 08:10:10 AM
Great idea.. the shoe really catches your eye as being out of place. The color is wonderful.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/02/2005 08:00:36 AM
thats cute!

09/01/2005 11:18:59 PM
The black sheep of the family.. I especially like this one.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/01/2005 09:25:23 PM
Sure does stand out ...shows off those other wonderful ankles...could it be the genes?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/01/2005 07:51:03 PM
Very creative! I like everything about this picture. I think I might've liked it more in color though, I think the shoe would've stood out more if maybe it was a different color from its surroundings. Nice job though.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/01/2005 03:01:30 PM
What a fun photo
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/01/2005 02:47:54 PM
Nice, this shot is pretty good and I think you made a right choice to make this sepia toned. Just to nitpick though a couple of the feet are slightly out of the DOF (the closes one and the one farthest away) but other than that, definately one of the better shots in the challenge IMO, I gave it an 8.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/01/2005 02:38:27 PM
Great image! Original and has good energy.

Love the bokeh and the image is timeless. Wish I had thought of this shot. Great Job -8-
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/01/2005 03:53:06 AM
nice pic! should be at top ten, 8 for me
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/01/2005 02:18:42 AM
Such a nice capture. The depth of field is perfect, the warm tones perfect, the composition, you guessed it :)
I like the originality of the photo and the execution of the shot. Minor detail but there is a bit of distracting glare (?) and weird line at the bottom right? The piece of cloth also distracts a tad IMHO!
In any case, I hope you score high! Good luck

I really love this idea it look good in black and white and the feet in front and the shoe in the back is really cool.

i like the toning you've chosen. i think this would be even better if that bit of fabric wasn't visible.

Standout image without a question. Beautiful work. Hopefully a ribbon winner.
