Very cool image, Margie, I really like this! #1899047

Anne D. Eigen 9/29/2005 8:09:31 AM

Wonderful image that says a lot, Margie! Love the tones also! #1899084

Margie Hurwich 9/29/2005 9:40:04 AM

I'm so glad you all like it! I was going after a "story". This photo will be sold at an exhibit to help raise money for homeless dogs and cats. I wanted to show a true family.

Wow. I never thought I would like a photo of some dirty shoes so much. :)
Really it is a great photo. It tells a story in a simple way. Of course the tipped shoe adds a nice brake to the repetition. The lighting is quite good as well. I look forward to seeing your stuff in class! JP #1903810

This is great!! I can totally see it as a poster!! you have a beautiful gallery!! #1913904

Margie Hurwich 10/4/2005 9:53:37 AM

Thanks so much! I'm hoping to sell it at an exhibit.

And thanks Sandy for the compliment on my gallery. I've only been shooting since June/July time frame. #1916497

DiAnna F. Paulk 12/10/2005 8:28:49 AM

Margie, this is wonderful! I can't imagine it not having a medal here and great results at the auction. It does tell a story and it just grabbed me when I saw the thumbnail. What an appropriate piece for your purpose!

Thanks so much for commenting on my most recent "Little Green Bee" transfer! It led me to "find" your wonderful gallery! #2171641

Margie Hurwich 12/10/2005 1:22:32 PM

DiAnna, out of all of my shots, this was always the one that I would have loved to have had a medal under. Not meant to be...but the meaning and feelings are still behind this shot. Thank you so much. #2172279

Katrina McMeans 12/17/2005 7:57:21 PM

I love this, Margie!!! Very cute and conveys a story too! Great idea and presentation! ; )

Thanks so much, Katrina. This one means alot to me. #2197013

Kate Jackson 12/21/2005 7:17:00 AM

Hi Margie I love this shot too. The only thing that I think might balance up the left hand side would be if the shoe on the far left was pointed inwards somewhat. The arrangement of the shoes on the right is great but I think it is too plain on the left. And I can't believe I am talking about how to arrange a family of dirty shoes!!! #2209159

Margie Hurwich 12/21/2005 2:08:58 PM

Thanks Kate. I'm finally home from vacation and can't wait to recrop my this picture. I'm hoping to have it done within the next day or so and then re-post on the Q&A. Then I'll get feedback and if possible submit to contest. #2210309

LOL, Margie I see that you go from one extreme to another.

Beauty vs well, tennis shoes


I love all of your flower shots.

I've tried numerous subjects...the best are the ones that don't move! This was taken for a homeless pet shelter. Their slogan is a forever family. The dog bone says it all. Thanks! #2459400

Karen Damiani 3/21/2006 5:40:13 PM

Wonderful image Margie! Both eye catching and thought provoking. #2559180

Margie Hurwich 3/21/2006 7:02:56 PM

Thanks, Karen. This shot means alot to me! #2559315

Barbara Helgason 4/19/2006 7:09:51 AM

I saw this one in the forum countdown thread and just had to come to your gallery and comment. What a PERFECT PERFECT FANTASTIC picture for a homeless pet shelter. We WILL see this one again or I'll eat my hat! :) Good luck Margie!! #2660940

Margie Hurwich 4/19/2006 8:43:32 AM

Thanks Barbara. This is the third time you may have to eat that hat... #2661296
