An old pair of boots stumbled across as I neared a bird sanctuary in dappled sunlight. The light fell perfectly across them, didn't have to move them or anything. Applied the draganize action to enhance the already lovely texture.

Something so simple sure says a lot. I like the texture and lighting.

This is well done and unexpected. I like the natural framing of the wood to the left of the boots. Great lighting and tones. This has a nostalgic sense and could be emotive on many levels. Maybe a soldier, maybe a worker, or even a relic of someone who has passed on and they are shining down their light on their old shoes.

If there was a little more light on the top of the left boot I think it would make this perfect. Great photo, I love the old feel. Good job.
