Purple Shoes by Shirley Ward, FPSA, EPSA

May 2022 - Purple Shoes

About the Image(s)

Here is another pair of women's high heeled shoes.... As you can see the heels are positioned on a metal candle stick holder, with some fake purple poinsettia underneath them... the creative technique is given to the textured background.

First, I love the color of the shoes (purple is one of my favorite colors). I would appreciate seeing the original so I could comment more fairly. To me, the background, which is the texture, is too blown out, especially from the upper left hand
corner to the upper middle of the image. I would reduce the brightness significantly, Also, since the main subject is the shoes, I would either blur the leaves of the poinsettia as the sheen from the green leaves are distracting and seem out of place or find something more in keeping with the texture.   Posted: 05/21/2022 07:52:41

I intended for the background to be "blown out" for a high key effect....I could reduce the sheen on one of the green leaves on the right corner so to have them all the same tone. I couldn't find the original or I would have submitted it...   Posted: 05/21/2022 11:39:15
