Multiplicity of colour boats! Some look nice, others not really :), but i like the framing you got!

Now, if i was responsible for the decoration/displaying of the product in this shop i think id' put the flower boots at the top shelf. There would be more symerty in the colours that way. As it is now, i think i'd crop the picture right above the blue shoes, or i'd re-decorate the store ;) Did a quick WS but you'll need to enable it for me to be able to post it.

These different coloured boots make interesting patterns. I like how some are out of position, not all neat and tidy. The only problem is some very bright spots, maybe reflected from the shop lights.

Dr. Martins! As soon as I saw this photo I thought of London right away! (And I was right!!) This is a great photo. All the colours have been captured wonderfully (especially the yellow ones).

My only suggestion would be to crop both the left and right side slightly. This is just to remove the other types of shoes that are slightly visible, leaving only the one specific style of shoe in the frame. But regardless, its a great photo!


It's wonderful. It reminds me of your post on TE of "The New Fashion". Very artistic and very well seen. Your eye for a good capture always amazes me. Well done :-)

Docs of every color what a dream. I have a pair of the blue ones. I like the rainbow affect you foto offers. Some of the flowered boots seems a bit too bright. I like the cropping.

Hi Yitzhak! Nice to see you here. I suppose "these boots are made for walking". Just change the color according to the place where you go. Well catched alignment and attractive colors. Presentation is fun too.

I think Kate Moss have more shoe then you :)

Well done

A good study on repetition. Great colors too.The colors range from very colorful at the bottom and the opposite on top.

All these boots look like those very expensive Dr Martin boots that the teenages adore. There is a very old, well worn, and unsed pair at our house, that someone I know can't part with.
I like the way you have filled the frame with these boots repeating the pattern. Well seen.

The light may be just a bit harsh on these shoes, especially in the lower areas, but I still really enjoy the colors and composition. Nice work!

very cool composition, Yitzhak. The repetition is well composed and the colors + sharpness are great.

Very good Avigur !
It´s very colourful !
Thanks for sharing !

Doc Martens! That was initially the real Skinhead :-( boot, then they learnt their marketing and aimed the teen market... and even younger...

When my daughter was 3 yo I bought her black and white DMs I loved to see her with those big shoes, a LA Raiders jacket (an american football team) figuring a skull and crossbones flag in her back, and a bandana in her hair. She was really fun like that.

Back to your shot, Yitzhak, I think you should have cropped the two upper shoe lines.
In fact, there's an overexposed line of shoes that doesn't match at all with the other colored ranks.
Crop the top to keep only blue, yellow pink and green shoes, you'll see it gives a much better feeling, IMO.

Nancy Sinatra a chanté "Boots" dans les sixties; l'air me trotte encore dans la tête en voyant ce bel étalage coloré.
Mais je n'achèterai pas la paire mauve.

Nancy Sinatra sang "Boots" in the sixties; the song is still in my brain by seeing this beautiful coloured display. But I will not buy the mauve pair.

Nice observation, tight framing is perfect here, could have been tighter on the right though? But well done Yitzhak.
"This boots are made for walking..." Looks just like the Dr Martens my daughter was crazzy about on her 15th! ;o)

Very colourful, smart and unique in presenting boots in a picture! :-) I like the tight framing and the way light is shyning on them. I am not for a cropping - the rows seem to me quite arranged: the more weird colours are at the bottom, and the flowered ones are between grey and blue ones to bring some diversity. Very well seen and captured Yitzhak!

Nice boots and well seen! The different coloured boots make an interesting pattern. Good composition, the close and tight crop really "makes" the picture

Image très originale et sympa.
Dommage que le cadrage ne soit pas tout à fait parfait :-) Mais on ne peut pas toujours penser à tout !

I love DR. Martins. I like the tight compos and the use of the light to show the colors. Good one

This is interesting shot! I life how you framed it... Colorful shoes, was the reflection caused by the flash? Looks great here. Nice captured.

great shot!

Grande foto cheia de estilo,um olhar diferente sobre uma situação que tantas vezes nos passa despercebido no dia a dia,tem uma grande visão,Adorei a fotografia e os tons estão excelentes.

dr martins should be proud to see this picture..this is a picture I would like to copy and send to some friends if you please..these boots were the meaning to be cool when we were young..(I am thankful to this London trip as it brought back very lovely pictures for me to see and remember..)

nice use of repetition, colour and architecture

I like this composition. I think the light at the bottom maybe a bit harsh but overall, this is a good capture.

Hi Itzik,
It's a good shot. These different coloured boots make interesting patterns.
See my similar shot from Holland, "Clogs".
Well done
