More old footwear and another board saved from the loft. Unfortunately the thumbnails don't really do this series justice, so thanks for getting this far. Please leave a comment: which do you prefer and why ?

Same as previous two uploads - converted to B&W using channel mixer and applied a platinum tone.

Tripod, manual focus, mirror lockup, 0.6 sec at f/11.

I prefer this one John,because they look like what they are..muddy shoes just plonked down after a hard day's gardening perhaps.I like the combination of textures from the wall & wooden flooring.
Maybe a pair of wellies or workboots would work too.

Prefer this one John, love the composition, and the textures and tones. I think the wall is the better backdrop, the eye then focuses on the shoes more, its more simple and effective for me.

Superb toned B&W image. Excellent tonalities and detail with a very good set-up.

PS Good eye level you have. My mesa image was 0,4 slanted. As they say in Spanish "I couldn't see a straw in my eye".

I prefer this shot John, as the light is a little more contrasty. The others were a little flat for my taste, maybe its the texture of the wall?....

Almost could have been thrown there, left to rot. Another fine still life, subject matter we see a lot of, John. Ron.

Like this one best, it's the composition that is more appealing to me. Lovely mix of texture and tones in this image.
