Excellent shot. You've used the silhouettes and high contrast to create an excellent mood that sets this photo apart. Very nice crop and composition. 9

Lovely! Strong composition, great silhouette, well done. One of my favourites this week. 10

The background is a bit too busy, but apart from that it's a nice subject.

Interesting shot, possibly a little too arty for the DPC crowd. It's hard to tell whether the blown highlights are accidental, or part of the photographer's style here. The crop is unusual, again it's difficult to know if the tip of the shoe on the left has been deliberately cropped or not.The composition is certainly unusual, the shoes cut the frame in two (top and bottom) which doesn't normally work well. I think it works well here however. I think that this shot can only really work as part of a series with other similar shots, but here I will give it an above average score.

Nicely done. I would have prefered both shot fronts to be completely in view but, it doesn't detract from the image that much for me. I like this nonetheless

The top part of the background is distracting, and the shoes seem to be out of focus. The glare on the table (?) floor (?) is a bit too much as well. Last, I think you cropped too much off the top of the shoes.

Nice graphic image with dynamic colors. Don't really like the thin white-lined border. The biggest detractor is the chopped off toe on the left shoe. A smaller concern is the lack of the top of the shoes.

Has a lot of potential. With some more attention to background and composition it could have told a story. The purple fringing around the right shoe is distracting and can be easily fixed in editing.
