[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is one of the many pics i took during the summer of 09 but was unable to process due to my own laziness.

Just like most of the photographers here on this site I always try to shoot something different and this is one such attempt but unfortunately this pic turned out to be similar to many other shoe shots on this site.

I would like all ur comments and suggestions that would help me improve and do something different with these kind of shots.

The reason i took this shot was the bright red color of the shoes which to me was very attractive at that time and i tried my level best to capture that look.

Have only adjusted brightness, contrast and levels in PS and have added a vignette.

Hello Mustafa,

Very interesting abstract shot in my opinion. The details are very sharp, and lighting is very well captured. Great processing to make this shot eye-catching. I like the simplicity.
Nice shot!

Hi Mustafa,
An excellent composition here! The main subject stands out so well with the beautiful vibrant colours against the background which is a very interesting gradient of grey to black. Although the subject is very centred, the lines between the pavement frame it well and give it some asymmetry. Well done.

Hello bro
A very well seen and capture, i particularly like the color combinations i.e ground, blue and prominent Red.

Red is always been an eye catching so ur choice of shooting RED shoes was great!
I'd say its not a centered composition as the shoes (ur main subject) falls in the 1/3 portion of ur frame n the leads in for blue from top is too good.

The focus is adequate and colors vibrance is eye pleasing :)


Hello Mustafa,
The bright red sneakers and freshly laundered blue jeans are today's fashion for comfort. It would be interesting to see this image again in ten years. You have a good eye for composition...Regards,

Great and funny idea.
Strong colors. I like the concept.
A good impact. Clever composition.
A detail of daily life as I like.
Well done
