The shoes were placed on top of the safety concrete barrier of our porch. We live on the 8th floor, this is the view from the porch looking down.

wonderful image, perfect focus, great choice of shoes, just worn enough to look tired. Well done!

That shot is mesmorising. Excellent idea, result and power.
Almost felt dizzy looking at it!

As a photo, amazing use of depth of field. As a statement from an art point of view, it gets a gut reaction, that makes it good.

We don't know if these shoes are empty, or if they're strapped to your feet. It's a good concept, but doesn't quite follow the challenge guidelines.

It is that I would never wear that kind of shoes, but you really place yourself in the person. (Although maybe if you were the person you wouldn't see your feet that close.. or I'm confused or really tall.. Anyway, I think it's the better choice to do it like this anyway because the composition comes out better)

I contemplated this idea myself for this challenge and made a picture that I did not submit (yours is better) - we'll discuss more when you are out of anonymity. It's one of the few times when the border makes sense and gives a feel of finality and determination. 8
