After (with color balanced)
This photo submitted by Gerry Toler is really good. I like sense of motion you get but still have one piece of the photo sharper than the rest. The placement of the shoe is also nice in the bottom left. If you were to draw the rule of thirds, the shoe falls at the meeting point of two lines. Good job! The only thing I would change would be to color balance this photo. The first thing that my eye sees is too much blue. By adding yellow and some red, the shoe really pops right off the page.
