!!*Photography* Challenge Group!! Happy Holidays :-)

This group is all about Themed Photography Challenges

Shoes (NOT on feet!)

This challenge closed over 3 years ago.

The Challenge

A photograph in which the shoe is the main focus of the photograph. Please make your photograph as close to “out of the camera” as possible. Basic touches including touch up, selective colouring etc are OK.


  1. A shoe, sandal, flipflop (thong), boot. (or 2, 3, 4 etc)
  2. Shoes that are on display (see picture), on the floor, on the sand etc… but let’s not make this a challenge about foot/leg models… ie no shoes that are being worn.
  3. It’s OK if these are adult shoes, kids shoes or even “fake” shoes (am thinking the one in Vegas or the metal ones on the banks of the Danube in Budapest) but they must be shoes designed for humans and NOT being worn.


Horse Shoes
Railway or other engineering shoes

Also NO

  1. Photos where you cannot see that the bike is the main focus of the shot.
  2. Works that are not photos
  3. Nudity or other work needing safe filter… yes we have to put this on every challenge :-)

For this challenge, works that placed in the previous shoes challenge are OK but we would rather see new shots. :-)

Judging / Voting Criteria

Please vote for your favourite(s) that fit the theme, as many as they are. Every vote counts!

Additional Information

The 2nd challenge that is “recycling” an old theme… please try to make this a new image (everyone here has shoes and a camera, right?!) or at least not one that previously won a challenge here.

  1. Please remember this is the photography challenge group :-)
  1. Works not added to the group cannot be featured when they end in the top 10 (‘computer says NO’). Adding to the group once the challenge is over will be too late. Please add your work to the group as you add it to the challenge! :-)
