So to kick off 2019 here is my photograph for new.

3.2 second exposure and lit the the led torch on my phone, and opted on a black and white conversion. There are a few others if you click through to flickr but I keep coming back to this edit.

Hi. 9th 52, that's amazing!

Like your choice for this and looking through the others I agree it's the strongest. I like the contrast in the shot and the symmetry. It was also a good choice in my opinion to darken the right hand side in the edit.

The only tiny niggle is the corner of the darker piece of wood on the floor showing from under the left hand side shoe as we look.

Strong start to this year's 52. Good luck with the rest of the year.

I do like the contrast between the boots and the wood and I like the fade away to the background from the floor.

Like the subject, like the black and white and like all the detail all around the image. I wasn't so sure about the shadow at the bottom but that's only a personal thing

On the board and looking good Michael

As soon as I looked in Flickr I thought!! They are not your boots. Like the high key type of shot with the little shadow at the front, plus the tones and texture in the wooden flooring.
Thanks for looking in Dave and the comments, appreciated as always.

Hi Steve, 9th, its a challenege which helps keeps me going, I'm always drawn to returning! Thanks for looking in and commenting. Niggles noted :)

Like the lighting on this shot, how the wooden floor 'disappears' .... Good job!
Thank you Bob

Thank you Peter.

Nice composition and the lighting is great. B&W works really well.
Thanks Clive, I was pleased with the black and white here.

Very nice, punchy image!
Like the symmetry and the contrasty look, and the wood grain really works.

Thanks Walter, the phone led does work quite well, I usually use my Olight torch with a diffuser on it, but I couldn't find it last night.

Wow love this image it certainly draws your attention. Lighting is spot on to my eyes. Like the black background. Only niggle I have has been mentioned and I see you have taken note of it. Just the join in the wood . Look forward to seeing more of your images.

That works very well. There's no mistaking what the subject is. I like the black and white conversion, I don't think it would have quite the impact in colour.

Thank you Mandy, pleased you like the image.

The look remarkably like my daughters new Ice Skating boots, they even appear to be off the floor in a similar way that they would be.
The Mono processing and high contrast approach works really well. (y)
Thanks Tim, high contrast was certainly the way to go for this one.

Great shot, stands out so well looks great.
Thank you Jonathon.

I like the mono and the strong contrast. Looking at Flickr I too like this one most.
Thank you.

Thanks Dominic, the colour version didn't really look right at all.

Super sharp shot Michael, I like the almost extreme b&w it works really well.
Thank you Susie, going as extreme as possible was the idea, thank you for looking in and commenting!

Hi Michael, I think everyone has said it all really. Very nicely done. Like Tim, my first impression was of ice skates but I see from the others on Flickr that they have a deep sole. I think you picked the right one too :)
