Oh this one speaks art to me; looks like a poster print. only nit pik is the pores on the leg are a bit distracting, lol. (voted earlier)

It's crazy the meaning this photo has to me. I had a friend named Dorothy, who wore shoes just like this. She also rode a Harley. She was over the top in so many ways... definitely a wild woman... and this photo portrays her perfectly.
LOVE the colors, the detail, the only complaint is the pores on her legs... perhaps smoothing the skin would have made for a better photo.
Other than that... I absolutely love this shot.

Dorthy is all grown up and no longer needs to click her ruby slippers to escape Oz. I imagine she puts the floors the gas and roars down that yellow brick road:-) That bold deep red of the shoe just leaps off of the page. This is an above average shot but I have one suggestion that could help improve the visual appeal even more. I feel the vertical crop 'stuts' the image; it feels confined. A horizontal crop would give it a 'widescreen' feel to get a sense of the direction one would travel on the wide open spaces of the road. It would also follow the lines and orientation of the bike as well.

It's not a motorcycle unless it's a Harley with a nice looking lady on it. Like it!!!

I like the color in this shot. I wouldn't mess with this Dorthy.

Interesting concept, but Dorthy's leg detracts a bit from the picture when contrasted to the polished metal. Perhaps some nylons or airbrushing? Still getting good marks for concept :)
