[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Sometimes I like to take a photograph of an everyday, mundane object and try, by adding shadows and adjusting light, to make it interesting.
I was out walking and came across this old, discarded boot. I don't know how the owner got home. Anyway, I'll let you decide if it's interesting.

ISO 640 (it was very dull and I was hand holding the camera)
1/100 sec

Bom di Robert,
I got the impression of already knowing this boot...
I think you could put together a good scenario to highlight the boot that is the focal point of the plot, good composition, adequate light and a well balanced BG.
Very good result.

Hello Bob,
Interesting it certainly is. To me, anyway. I like the composition and detail. Outstanding sharpness and there is a lot of character and atmosphere. Well done.

Hello Robert,
J'aime bien l'ambiance que vous avez créé avec cette chaussure jetée et l'atmosphère de cette forêt. Le jeu de lumière est incroyable, les couleurs sont magnifiques, bravo.

Hi Bob,
A great shot and even better that it's not a staged shot, I love the green moss and the black vignette - the focus is spot on and one of the best shots I have seen on TL for some time. It falls into my special category "I wish I had taken that shot"

Hi Bob,
Very well carried out and the boot surely tells a story, any story. I like the sharpness and clarity on the boot surrounded by the growth of the moss. Well seen and great presentation.

Hi Robert
This is interesting to me. At least the boot is in focus and well located in the framing, I also like the depth of field and the saturation.


Great shot,good composition. I like the sharpness and clarity of the boot,and the black vignette that surrounds it.
best regards
