Very clever idea for the challenge -- well done!

I think in this image the positioning of the shoes in the corner of the frame really does add to the impact. The colours are quite soothing and very reminiscent of summer days at the park.

I like the idea, but I would have added a little entropy to the placement of the shoes for the sake of looking natural (even if it really was this way in real life :)
Focus got a bit soft on you.

the grass really pushes the eyes to teh shoes, very effective. I like the colors as well. karmat

Good photo. Untied laces would have made it more spontaneous.

I think I would have liked it better with the shoes on top, as if he had stepped forwards out of them. Then the expanse of grass would make more sense.

The color is awesome! Great clarity as well.

You seemed to have captured the "Negative space" and color is good. The image doesn't reach my creative side though. Just MY taste I know, so it won't cost you. Good luck in the challenge. Grayce aka Gracious

title makes the picture..........

This is a great picture. I get a real sense of freedom from this. Someone just took their shoes off and decided to go trotting in the beautiful green grass. Great job.
