    Hi friends, thank you very much for your comments!
I'm happy you liked it or found it worth commenting.
Yes Raf, you are right - the cloning looks awful! I was shocked that it is this obvious even in the downsized version. I had to clone out branches on both sides. The turquoise spot on the left is even worse, imo. Hmm... I just couldn't manage to clone on a color gradient background.
Lo, I think I know what you mean. Using flash sometimes produces strange shadows and the impression of flatness. ...next time I'll use a fan and my silk stocking! :-D

    I cant decide on the flash element works or not . also cropping to be portrait rather than the empty landscape

    Nice idea for the challenge! I keep having trouble with the black edges - My mind knows that these socks were photographed on a line outside, but my brain keeps seeing them on a flat surface with shadows across the top - it's the oddest effect!

    could be an add for washing powder. Nice job. Is the clone out bottom right? That is what it looks like.

    My instant favorite! I like that you used flash to add some light to the socks so the exposure and detail was retained. Very nicely done!
