High/Low - This photo is perfect. The shoe looks GIANT, but awesome. It's not so distracting that you can't understand what's going on. To me, it could be a clever fashion ad for the shoe, in a way. I also love the fact that it is in black and white because I think the contrast works in its favor. The shoe definitely looks larger than life and makes the viewer feel small.
