Thought I'd try something a little different with composition. None of these are cropped! Okay, I lie. The last one I cropped a bit off the top.

I really like the last one. It's exactly what I wanted, but I feel as though it's still missing something. For some reason, I found their feet fascinating. Might post more later =)

Thoughts?

ETA: I pretty much risked my life getting these shots. How close to death did I get, you ask? Pretty darn close! :rolleyes: That's my knee at bottom centre.

It called a "Foot Fetish":D
I like the first one.
The focus, DOF and exposure on the feet look good to me.

:laugh: Of course! I guess I was a little bit in denial :rolleyes: :headslap:

Thanks! I think I know what it's missing...There needs to be a cute little duckling by the feet! :lightbulb

I think Antz was right about the fetish... o_O

Too contrasty?

Herbert! This guy just followed me around everywhere, lol. Was literally two feet behind me at all times. Guess he really liked the camera =)

I like these Gem - Lots of good play here. Nice series!

I really like the first shot! very good composition and good eye for noticing the texture. It's my fave of all the shots in this thread. shot3 - I like this one too though the bkgd is a wee bit bright. again nice foot texture.

Form post #4 - Shot 1 is a bit too contasty. Shot 2 is nice but needed more DOF imo as the blur on the leg isn't working for me. Shot 3 is SUPER cute but you amputated the legs. Still a good shot imo, but I would have liked to see the legs. Hope that helps - Marko

Thanks for the feedback, Marko =) I wasn't too sure if some of these shots were working or not.

Crap, I don't even know how I didn't realize I missed his feet! :headslap:

I like the foot shot...they look really reptillian in that shot...I can really see the dinosaur resemblence especially and that's pretty neat IMO!

Yeah, I thought they looked pretty repilillan too. Almost alien-like :rolleyes:
