|Hard working shoes/paddock boots.|
I recently took this picture as part of a photo challenge about shoes. I have never participated in these challenges because #1 - I didn't have a lot of time, #2 - professionals throw their photos in there as well and #3 - I don't usually think my photos can stand up against others. Although I really liked the way this one turned out, even if my subjects thought I was a little nuts - nearly laying flat on the ground while they were lined up leaning up against the fence. This picture also forced me to learn how to add vignette to a picture - I know it is a very few easy steps, but only if you know which steps. I've also sent this picture in to another very popular blogger's photo challenge for black & white photography (again professionals are in the mix). I don't expect to even make the final groups of these challenges, but at least I've tried. My only regret - I didn't pan up & get a picture of their faces while they were hanging out -- I kept my promise that I would only get their feet... maybe next time.
