VERY nice! I like it... it tells a story.

Oooops... I didn't mean for it to sound the way it sounded! LOL! I meant it isn't you're typical shot but I like it anyway! :) ~ Lonnit

P.S. They are not my shoes etc. ;) I came upon them just like this. The scene sparked my imagination. Who left them? Where was she? She was very trusting to leave her purse... and such thougths. Ann

Rethought this and decided to crop a bit from the forground... I like it better. Ann

What's in the distance at the top is the horizon and the sea. I had it in the image at first but it took the eye away from the subject. Cropping it made a more intimate picture and told the story better. Ann

Oh, Lonnit, I don't know about this being so NOT an Ann Chaikin. In my mental picture of Ann, this could very well be her own clothes and footprints!

Very good, story-telling shot Ann! Of course, I don't know what's outside the frame, but I would have liked more negative space on top and less at the bottom. As it is here, the center of interest is too close to the center of the image. If you can't put more in at the top, maybe just cropping from the bottom would do good?

Oh Ann! This is so NOT you! I like it! Great job with the footprints trailing off. ~ Lonnit
