macroday entry for 'sneakers'
Comments, feedback, criticism, suggestions, etc. are always appreciated. Thanks!
Nice abstract sneaker shot. Like how the fuzzy detail of the shoelace breaks up the fine pattern of the shoe leather.

Shows up the wonderful textures. Excellent idea!

@Michael Skorulski: thanks! i can't claim to have been all that creative. I just took a photo of the side of my shoe and tried to get it so the lines and composition wasn't too boring. macroday came up with the shoe idea.
The black and white fits very well to the cotton details and structures.

lovely concept. I really love the way you framed the image.

@Rags: thanks a lot. i actually wanted to frame it larger to get more lines and textures but since i have to resize down to 800 pixels wide for aminus3 it wouldn't have looked quite as macro, and since it's for macroday, i compromised.

@Craig: thanks a lot!
Well done! I love the details and textures....

@vu@granby - Wolfgang: thanks Wolfgang!
Wonderful textures, nicely composed...I really like the detail of the shoelace. Excellent job.

@Melissa W.: thanks! i was worried the shoelace detail might not stick out enough, so i was trying to emphasize it more.
After the previous image, this macro makes wonder if you have started a Crime Scene Investigation series going. ;-)
Interesting patterns and textures that would normally be overlooked.
Should we dig out our black light?!

@Kevin from OrganicPIX.com: Thanks Kevin! I like your sense of humor. :)
Interesting as an abstract. Good detail.

@Oswegan: Thanks a lot. Especially nice coming from someone who produces such cool abstract, detailed, textured photos.
A brilliant close up, lots of great textures going on.

@MaryB: thank you!
great macro - excellent tonal range

@yiannis krikis: thanks a lot. for once i spent a little time in photoshop playing with the levels on a b&w shot, i hope it paid off.
Beautiful and creative composition. Great lighting and textures!

Excellent shot ... the detail is incredible!

@Ron: thanks, really appreciate that!
Great macro, nice detail

@alun lambert: thanks alun!
Always surprises me how we can get so close as to not be able to recognise what we are looking at. Nice one.
9 Apr 2008 9:33pm
A very sharp close up, good shot.
9 Apr 2008 10:58pm
The detail, especially in the lace, is amazing. Very nicely done.

Excellent macro, but I like this picture as an abstract. no need to understand !

You can't untitle this sneaker. We have to know if you have a cool brand:-) Neat shot.

A wonderful shot. And speaking of the surprise of not recognizing what we see, did you take some of your photos near and on the campus of UC Berkeley? The Campanile (aka Sather Tower), the intersection, and the bones display in the anthro dept? When I saw them there was a moment of recognition but I couldn't place my finger on it. I ask because I used to visit the research libraries on the campus many many years ago.

Great macro. Love the way its composed.
10 Apr 2008 4:11am
Wonderful abstract. I love the detail and the different textures.
10 Apr 2008 7:01am
very strong sense of texture (fuzzy) and a remarkably narrow depth of field. if you hadn't titled it, it would have been hard to guess that this is a sneaker.

I didn't realize there was a "macro day." Is there a central listing of these days somewhere or do you just have to be in the loop? I like the texture and form.

@Twelvebit: Well i sort of came across them from links to them on other photoblogs. But there is a list of a bunch of them on the Photo Meme Hall of Shame blog, if you scroll down a bit, it's on the right side. I googled 'photo meme' and found some sites with lists that aren't necessarily complete, also they're not all photography or they're not all weekly challenge type sites.
