Good composure and lighting, I just don't get the idea.

Nice concept; dubious execution; but can't tell you what i'd do differently

But what does the shoe symbolize? It's not shiny enough for a banker or a broker, not bulky enough for a blue-collar worker. So who is it? I get the idea that the dot-bombs are getting trampled. But who's doing the trampling?

Good composition. I wish that blue tinge wasn't there.

This just reminds me of the old support desk story about the person calling up complaining that the foot pedal on their new PC wasnt working. The idea is good but the product logo is distracting and the background seems overexposed. Good attempt at lighting but overall something's not quite right.

I didn't care too much for this (sorry) until I saw the "Trust" on the mouse - nice subtle irony.

There's an old addage in the corporate world - create a better mousetrap...
Nice shot, and interesting that the mouse's name is Trust, and that Trust is being crushed.

Don't quite see how the title fits in but what's in a title? Nice image. Like that blue highlight on the shoe. Don't care for the washed out area in the top of the image.
