This is my first concept image special made for Dreamstime. What do you think of it?

I think there should've been more focus on the shoe which doesn't stand out enough. It follows the line and the color of the sleeve, merges with it and becomes "invisible" at one point. For a second I thought that this was a weird handshake.

RED is king in stock, eye catching and stands out amongst other thumbnails, so maybe consider something similar but with a red shoe also?

I really appreciate your advice! Since it's my first stock oriented image your feedback is more than welcome!

Step in the right direction (no pun intended). I'd explore your tango and dance interest. Seems like a lot more potential there. So many insects in your port kind of creeps me out.

Good idea, I intend to upload some tango drawings... also in vector format.

Very good criticism, I will take note and correct my future compositions... and I will re shoot this image with some red shoes and a man with smaller hands :))

Just be careful about what shoes you use if you make them more of the focal point as some designers are picky about copyright. For example, I think Louboutin even has a trademark registration on the red color on the soles of his shoes. Just something to keep in mind :)

I'm afraid I have to agree. It is extremely side lit. This is great for adding drama, but unfortunately highlights every little flaw. For example, it exaggerates a very pronounced vein on the woman's foot. A strong fill light on the right hand side would have made that vein practically invisible.

Sorry to be critical, but this is a learning process :)
etc. Favorite lens - Canon 24-70 F2.8L....
