Thanks for the compliments, that's indeed the burgundy shell. I got it from the Carmina site:
It's actually a great time to get them, as people have said, the Euro's quite low, not to mention they actually take off VAT, which means an additional ~18% discount.
Heh! We use the same shoe trees! Just keep experimenting with the angles and lighting and you'll find something that works for you. Also, feel free to play around and do some post processing with a program like Google's Picasa. You'd be surprised how they could turn out.
By the way, the shoes look so vivid against the wood that they almost look like they're floating or have been cut and pasted from another image! Very cool!
Haha, funny you mentioned that, they do look like they're floating.
By the way, my pair actually have the same color as the one Gerry posted. So, if you guys want accuracy, look at his.
