Photograph Information Photographer's Comments
Challenge: Street Photography In Black and White (Basic Editing)
Camera: Nikon D600
Lens: Nikon AF Nikkor 50mm f/1.4D
Location: Soho, Hong Kong
Date: May 11, 2013
Aperture: 7.1
ISO: 400
Shutter: 1/250
Date Uploaded: May 13, 2013

The original image has been cropped a fair bit. I was sitting down low on a street in Soho, in Hong Kong, looking for a shot on the other end of the street when I saw this woman walking by in her high platforme shoes. I only got to take two shots of her walking by, and thought the tight crop with the white background would work pretty well. I don't expect it to be a winner in the challenge but I hope to get good feedback yet.

Very classy - just enough and not too much. Top five for me. Voted earlier. Back to comment.

I love action on the edges and emptiness at the center.

I'm hanging this in my fantasy art gallery

What a magnificent capture! (And what a shoe!) I love that her leg is just clear of the door in the background - I'm sure that makes a big difference to if it overlapped. I also love the balance between the woman and the pillar/wall on the right and that between the hand rail and the diagonal in the top left.

This would fit a Cartier-Bresson challenge. Nice composition.

beautiful composition

Very elegant. The fact that she's wearing a not so conventional pair of shoes adds some dimension to the picture. Well seen and well captured.

Terrific composition for such a sexy shoe. The window, garage door and railing add a great deal to the shot.

Love the framing and concept

Excellent perspective. That is an interesting shoe.

I get what you are trying to do with this, but the crop just doesn't work for me.
