Good subject John, but I agree that the background could be better. Nice workshop work Nadir; it's much better. Look pretty used, your shoes.

Goed onderwerp John. Je schoenen zien er goed versleten uit. Ik ga akkoord dat de achtergrond beter zou kunnen. Goed werk in de workshop van Nadir; het is beter zo.

Beste John, een mooie foto. Ik ben het wel eens met de kritiek dat de foto wat bijgesneden kan worden. Hoewel de foto er ook heel erg saai van kan worden. Het wit van de tafel met het grauwe van de schoenen vind ik erg mooi.

Hi John,

An humourus picture of the old pair of shoes that will be replace with a new pair. The details and colors are clear and sharp. The point of view is showing well the ndamaged shoes. May be showing the new pair beside the old one would have given a good comparison. Have a nice day.

Very peculiar photo, John!!!
Minimalistic but funny composition!!

Good catched!!

Best regards,

Bonjour John !
Un petit passage dans ta galerie, et je tombe sur une de tes premières photos qui a attiré toute mon attention dans sa simplicité et son minimalisme. Elle aurait pu faire l'objet d'une devinette auprès des membres.
Pour moi, je pense qu'il s'agit des chaussures d'un maçon, et est-ce si sûr qu'elles soient en retraite?
Je suis d'accord avec le WS de snsk. Le cadrage serré est plus adapté.
Merci du partage.
Marie- Louise.

Hi John !!
They look like my shoes when they get to the end..... but ..... back in time they were perfect and shining..........
Nice documental type of photo.
Have a nice week end in good health.

Dear JHM,
shoes by Vincent van Gogh, fine pair, fine composition, nice lightness, good cut, good contrast, original image.
Thanx for sharing.

Hello John! Fantastic boots, fine pair. Superb idea. Simply good take.
Today New Year's Eve. I wish all people of good will - all that is good and at best in 2016!

Dobar dan, gospodine.
Lep pogled ...
Lepo pokazane stare cipele, dobar kontrast i ostrina.
Ja volim kad razgazim cipele i kad mi legnu dobro na nogu.
Zelim vam lepo popodne, sve najbolje.
