Very very funny :) WFM. Was thinking about that title too, but not a brilliant shoe-twist like this one.

Nico, I assumed that must have been the case, but knew something had to be amiss, as that could certainly not have been the way it was presented in the movie version. Checking the link, this is confirmed; the original was a vertical shot, the shoe cropped at a much more natural place, deeper into the shoe. Remember, if you break a rule, you must shatter it - anything less merely looks like an error. Cropping the shoe in deep caused the sole to exit the frame directly at the level of the lower line of thirds. Merely clipping a tip looks like an error, and indeed is, if correctness is based upon the format of the original, and the rules of composition. All that said, it is an extremely creative take on the original - kudos for concept! I particularly love the dirt on the pitchfork! ~ Lonnit

Thanks, Michael, thanks, Lonnit.

Lonnit, I was trying to imitate the movie poster (visible athttp://www.imdb.com/title/tt0458352 ) where the red shoe is only partially visible. No other reasons.

LOL! Not happy about the tip of the boot cut off. Makes me get stuck on wondering if there was a reason for it. ~ Lonnit
