What immediately strikes my eye is that the red carpet isn't realistic.
(The lines are to hard where it's folded. The corners also should be a little rounded. You lack the 'thickness' of the carpet.)

Toning is ok.

I like the over all look, but I think you lost the shoes into the shadows, the foot on the door looks odd, maybe putting some highlights onto them.

Looks sweet. I disagree about the carpet, anyone who looks at it and hasn't seen the before will never know.

The shoes completely disappear.

Re: High End Retouch- Feedback Wanted!

Thanks to everyone for the comments.

I agree with JakobSkogheim. I really don't think that anyone would second guess the stairs unless they saw the original image. As far as the shoes go, I do agree that they are lost in the shadows but that was not a concern of mine or the client. The image was meant to have a very dramatic mood inside and outside of the door.

Keep the feedback coming! I'll post some more stuff soon.

You took out the light above the door, but is the shadow and the reflection of the light still there?

That depends on who you are showing it.

If you show it to your neighbour, he/she surely won't see it.
If you show it to an art director in an agency, .......

That's my experience.
