Greetings from Andi via the Critique Club

First Impression: Being a negative space junky the thumb grabbed my attention at once though was a little upset that the feet were not real

Composition: Absolutely love the composition.

Tecnical: I'm guessing the bg wasn't pure white in the original image so thats why you lost the shadow?

Artistic: Not a very DPC friendly shot as the score shows but for me this is a good shot, certainly out of the ordinary here and I like it a lot - it shows a novel flair.

Overall thoughts: In the most part this challenge bored me as footware doesn't really appeal to me and whilst there were plenty of techically better images in this challenge this was easily in my top 10, its fun, bright, different and a pleasure to view. It got a strong 7 from me and if you had sorted the shadow out and used real footwear it would have scored higher and most likely done much better in the challenge.

Thanks for submitting this and good luck for the future.

I didn't vote in the challenge, nor did I look at the entries. Having said that, I actually rather like this. I like the negative space, I like the upside down look, I like that it's different from all the rest. I think it would have scored better if they were real feet though as DPC generally does not reward photos of toys well. The other thing is maybe if the feet were further from the background, the shadow would have been minimized. If I had voted, I would have given it a strong 6, maybe a 7.

Good job on leaving the box - unfortunately you usually pay the price for it.
