Just wanting to play around with my camera and just grabbed my shoes and took photos of them ... Soooo much fun! Probibly a bit more to learn how to position the shoes to make it even better!

I quite like the position of the shoes,a shame you have just clipped the top off the one at the front.
The problem for me here is the colour,everything is very orange,perhaps down to your light source/white balance.I suspect the shoes are black,if they had shown black here I think you could have got away with the orange bg & this would have looked quite arty & stylish.
I have done a B&W conversion for you which I think shows off the shoes much better.

Chase has got here ahead of me with the b&w suggestion! I assume that the colour is deliberate, but it's just too strong, too acid for me.
Your focus and depth of field are good, and I like the way you have arranged the shoes for a low viewpoint.
Just one point - there are some nasty white dots scattered over the frame, particularly on the back of the right hand shoe. I think this will be due to specks of dust on the shoes, and will be much less noticeable on your hard drive copy. This sort of problem often arises during resizing, when tiny imperfections can be exaggerated. I suspect that you left this to ePHOTOzine. The site uploads pictures at a maximum of 1000 pixels per side if you don't resize your image the site does it automatically and you have no control over the results. So much better to resize yourself, so that you can check the image over for any problems.
I might try my own b&w version.

Thank you !! I also noticed the "white specs", the shoes is a soft material, and I think the way the sun or light was shinig on it only made it stand out more. I love the mods, especially B&W !! This is totally a new subject for me, I tried 2 use a Canon photo editing program, and just played with the colours. I noticed that the black faded away and wasn't the way I wanted it. I still have to play around a little bit more to perfect my editing skills.

Thank you so much for your advice, I love this site, your comments and thoughts help a lot .. Much love *

Rather effective. A really good try. You must watch for simple things like the clipped top to the shoe though. You obviously meant the colours and they do make you look.

Well done.

Paul
