I want to leave this picture open for interpretation; I'm sure with the title that it will give you a good idea of what I was thinkin about.

Put a lot of effort into this picture to try to make it look as real as possible - I was extremely inspired by Rene Magritte's similar painting.

My interpretation of this shot wud be, whatever mankind would do, his destiny is to work -not to earn money- but to survive. Working as a way to bear all the physical but also moral difficulties he'll meet. And this destiny would be there, again and again, even if he changes his social or political habbits or if he is evolved and if he masters technology (symbolized in ur pic by the shoe mixed with the feet). Thats what I think. I'll just add that your manipulation on that pic's just perfect :D !
And again, great idea to divert a Magritte concept adding a great deep aspect into it.

Oh yes, now I remember a pair of black shoed (or dark) with toes. But it doesn't change the fact that the result you achieved is great :)

I work at a production plant....I bought a new pair of safty boots recently, and they are soooo killer at first....especially at the end of a 12-hour shift! This is definately an interesting piece, and it looks so real--I love it, great job!

Perhaps my interpretation of this is wrong but from what I gather with the title and the fact that this is a shoe, it's a message against child labour. That is what I get out of this and it's a very powerful statement if it is! Excellent manipulation, strong message! :+fav:

Excellent interpretation ^_^ - I was going for exactly child labour, but slavery in general. Thanks for taking the time to actually look at my picture ^_^ hope to hear from you again

In my eyes you accomplished what you were trying to do. I have to admit when I first saw the thumbnail I didn't know what to expect. I'm glad I had a closer look.

very well done and realistic. if i would suggest anything for this picture, it would be to make the toes appear more calloused. doesn't seem worn enough to fit with the tongue and laces of the boot.

This is cool. Very graphic - iconic, almost. Images of "the worker" in mid-century novels going to factories, etc. Obviously great job in PS, but nice idea as well.
