Good idea, to put the other shoe in front of the subject to use the cord holes.

Like it a lot. Bit concerned that the colour tools and unsharp mask may have been used a little on the background image. Apologies if I'm wrong.

Enjoy your blue ribbon. This is an excellent study. I like the textures in the shoe in the back and the affective use of the eye hole to focus on the logo. Nice work! 10 -danny

Clever composition - you've turned an everyday object into something interesting and striking. Well done. I like the colours too.

I love this! I love how you can see the "star" in convers all star through the shoelace hole. wonderful focusing. great color.

Chuck Taylors STILL rule!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/27/2003 07:17:32 AM
Actually, I find the "star" in the eyelet distracting - too bad, as the bright red of the shoe plus and the shoelaces are great and would have been enough for me.

I really like this approach you took to this picture. This is very creative and a true trend! Awesome job!

Excellent shot!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/25/2003 04:28:55 PM
WOW! This is one of the cleverest shots I've seen for ages - talk about really looking for a new angle on a straight-forward object! I love the use of one shoe as frame to the other.. it really makes the DOF choice zing out!

GREAT depth of field effect!

Good idea as far as the composition goes - I think it misses just a little, but it's a challenging idea, so I'll give you an extra point for "level of difficulty"! What "bothers" me about it is that there's so much of the foreground (blurred) sneaker, that my eyes have trouble settling on the small star in the eyelet. Maybe this was the best it could be, but I wish you could have gotten the eyelet bigger, getting more of the star emblem, and less of the close canvas (and even better if you could get a little more of the far shoe showing on the right). Maybe that's all impossible - but it would have really been cool if you had gotten it. Everything else is good - ligting, color, contrast, focus, etc.

so eye catching !
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/23/2003 11:09:05 PM
I love how you got the 'star' right through the eye-hole... thats what makes this shot of converse the best ;)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/23/2003 10:15:07 PM
I'm confused what's in front because of the shadow and shallow depth of field. Is it the other shoe?
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Nicely done!

Really like the way you've set this up to read through the eyelet. Nice shot, fits the challenge very well. 8.

Nice shot. Love the red on white background. Although parts of the shoelaces seem to blend in the background. Very creative & original.
