Hmm... not really, I increased the contrast just to remove the details on the floor and surrounding to reduce distractions and to bring out more of the subject.

and by that u used positive space (white space) to bring your subject (stronger/contrasting colours)

tts how i would describe it. nevertheless, the tweaking was put to good use. ;)

Removing that distraction on the top left would make it more effective. Whether you consider that photographically ethical is another matter altogether. ;p

Or do you mean "dodge"? Burning in will produce a dark spot there. :p

You see, a photo is meant to capture a slice of time. Removing/adding elements changes that. Which is why I brought up the ethics issue. Whether done digitally or traditionally is no difference.

The regular burning in/dodging/levelling to equalize highlight and shadow levels are quite okay I presume, and is required to bring out the best of the photo.

Ya I noticed the distraction on the top left corner, but I don't want to alter the pic too much and that's why I left it there. Most of the time I would only sharpen slightly after resizing, and once a while adjust the levels if needed. In this case I found the details to be too much so I adjusted the contrast to reduce the distraction from the subject and to bring out the yellow boots.
