I had my back against the promenade metal rail watching the world go by when a man approached , there was something about him at ground level that just kind of glowed and caught my attention : his boots, yes his white boots ! He also came to rest his back on the railing a few paces away from me. I kept glancing back at his white boots every now and then for a few minutes , oh well i knew i wanted to get a shot of them before he walked off. Finally i had plenty of time to aim and capture them , of course i had seen boots like those before on women particularly nonetheless on a man in downtown Beirut i found them quite fanciful and fashionable ,i thought they made a nice subject too , anyway in PP, i converted in B&W ,played with curves , sharpened and applied a vignette, that is about it.
Iso 80 , f/4.5 ,1/100s taken in early evening on a pleasant Sunday on the promenade by the waterfront where hundred of Beirutis congregate to enjoy the views , a sunset , stroll or play , kids are certainly welcome !
Tahnks for looking,

Very nice capture of these unique boots !! Indeed, eye catching.
Good capture and nice b/w presentation. Great note with it too.

Hi Carol ,
I like your subject as it's different from normal subjects which most of present,here the most important thing I notice is its timing and framing,well placed in the frame,with accurate exposure for white subject plus the superb sharpness and details with diffused lighting condition all together makes it successful shot,well composed and beautifully captured and a nice presentation almost a advertisement show of the shoes.
Best Wishes

Hello, Carol -
Great to see you back after a short absence from TL. Great eye to see and capture this image; it's not just the unusual shoes but the position of the feet that make this shot fascinating. Good idea to present in b&w; very sharp details and nicely composed with an "L" shape formed across the right and bottom of the frame. Nice one!
