This was not an easy or cheap challenge for me. Boots from Walmart, cans of spray paint, and dry ice for inside the phone booth.
I wanted this to look as if Superman has forgotten his boots and his cape as he was changing in the phone booth.
As I was shooting this in a part, 3 teenagers came up and needed the phone booth...I am sure they did it just to see what I was doing, because one of them did have a cell phone. One girl says to me.."Why are you taking pictures of shoes?" Where do I start in trying to explain all of this? I told her it was for a website, and I was making it look like Superman has forgotten a couple of items.

I have gotten a couple of comments regarding my boarder. I got beat up on my boarder in my last challenge, as well I should have. It was a little too thick. With this challenge, I again wanted a boarder, and chose the red and blue because I wanted it to give the shot a "Commic Book" feel with the Superman theme.

Border bit distracting and the very colourful boots are misplaced. I cannot lay my finger on it and I might be very wrong but something is just not right. Nice picture but as if the boots don't belong. No vote just observing

Nice story here. I might like it better without a colorful border but that's a minor thing. Good luck!
