The saga continues!

Delboy, I am so glad your feet look bigger than the shoes you carry. I didn't realise it was "these shoes" when I saw the picture form the thumbnail (yes my vision is crap).
Again, I see a daring concept, almost advertorial. But I shall ask you to think harrder teh elements of the picture.
Shoes: tick
Balls: tick
Hole: tick
Green: questionmark
Rocky horrors background: Exclamation

I think you should have shot it from a point of view where the rocky horrors background is not visible.
Be careful with the shadows. meaning, avaoid putting yurs in the frame.
I questioned the green in case you want to try a mono conversion to see if it works.
In the absense of a girl with size 3 feet, stepping on one ball/stopping it going in the hole
and titled "I am tired of your games........" Wink
I would say you can work more in the thinking of pictures with the shoes as your theme;
gosh there may even be a market fir them,
what about having kept the shoes, the hole, the green elements only, placing one shoe in the hole and calling it:
"it was dark here last night"

Thanks for the comments.
Pablo it was a 9 hole mini golf on the back of the ship I was laid down on the rest of the green and I went for the smallest aperture available without going into macro
So hence the rocky horror show.
My aim is to show the shoes in every day positions rather than just taking an image of the shoes That would be too easy and safe.
I might just keep posting for your witty remarks. But seriously I find your comment interesting and informative.
I'll post a B/W ish latter

I honestly hope a female crew member of the ship will love to assist you making the pictures reality.

From a photographic point if view, I know you have used your camera for the crop of its offer; Swivel screen is a useful feature. I had noticed you had used the widest aperture of your lens to blur the background but I couldn't tell this mini golf playground was on board! Would it be better to have used a smaller aperture, include the balls in teh focus area and adjust the EVF to zero? I suspect because the balls don't have the surface of the real golf balls they look quite undescriptive now (they look round alright, so they convinced me they are not mandarins) so pity they were not white to blend with the shoes better. I know you wanted to stress the shoes, so I would have brought them to the foreground, just turn them around so they point to the (there you are!) man playing golf. A heavier cropping from top would keep some mystery (hopefully nobody would notice the shadow of the female missing) but that again would depend on your skill and the shooting angle.
