    Thanks both for the congrats :-) . It was a fun yet frustrating photo to take!

Mrsawyer - Sorry I meant to say that I think what you see as "the strange grey and rust-coloured visual phenomena in the lower left quarter of the photo" is just a reflection of the sock. I increased the saturation in that area as bit to make it stand out more.

    Congrats, a very creative shot!

    This went to the top for me because of thee innovative angle. Smelly and well taken.

    Nicely lit and shot, though the pose is maybe a bit melodramatic for my taste. The sock, however, looks quite clean and fluffy, like it just came from the wash. Would tell the story better if it were more obviously dirty, stained and limp.

    Good idea, suits to the topic. In my favorites.

    Thank you all for the great comments.

Elyod and mrsawyer - please see my comment below.

kerszkavet - you have no idea! It kept slipping down. The camera was at about a 45 degree angle when this shot was taken, hence the angle of the socks in the photo.

    Good idea for the theme, but why not use dirty socks for a more authentic feel.

    an imaginative shot - getting it right from inside the machine must have been hard work!

    Imaginative point of view! Perhaps formerly white socks would have conveyed more of a sense of odor. What is the strange grey and rust-colored visual phenomena in the lower left quarter of the photo? It doesn't really look like sock reflections. In my favs.

    very well composed. high in my favorites.

    Thank you all so much.

cookiejar - I was really pleased with the way it came out too :-) .

ysal - aoc46 - mrsawyer - Elyod - I fully agree with you all. I did try a pair of pale plain dirtyish socks initially but they just didn't stand out against the grey of the metal. I preferred the coloured reflections the bright socks game too as it provided a bit more interest. I will try this shot again with some really dirty socks one day :-) .

    Hahaha, funny shot! I think this would have been more effective if the item was visibly dirty.

    technically a great shot and on target

    Quite a humorous composition. I absolutely love the interior of the washer with the colours reflected in the textured stainless steel. The portrait adds a good narrative to the composition.
