Nice tones and exposure. This photo just looks a bit too busy. Maybe narrow down the subjects or a different composition.

The subjects inadverdantly frame the screen door bringing a lot of focus to it. I think desaturation here may have detracted from the whole. Would like to see the red of the swiss army knife and the weathering of the hiking boot. The item in the lower right corner is washed out and distracting.

I can see all this object could be considered low teck, and all relate to a theme - hiking or camping but the compostion is a little uninteresting. I think a more creative layout of these objects could have made for a more interesting photograph.

Should've left the knife red or used a different brand. Other than that I like the items chosen, but composition has a big hole in the center that seemd out of place.

Looks like a lot of clutter with very little focus. Everything is stuffed on the bottom part of the image with a gaping hole in the middle.

great examples of low tech, but this has a cluttered feel to me. also, the lighting is not very interesting. the foreground looks \"flat\", with no depth. however, i do respect the fact that this photo is pretty original in a way. 5.

I like this shot for its tonality and textures, but I really have no idea what I'm looking at other than a shoe and a pocket knife. Not sure if these items are supposed to hold together in some way, and I'm also not sure if the background relates to the foreground at all. Still, a nice looking shot.

the subject kind of blends into the b/g

Very nice image, the single thing I would suggest would be to use a cloth for a background. This would remove the window and the unflattering backdrop in this image. 7.
