    Try setting your WB to Auto and see what you get. They all look really soft also. Are you using auto focus?

    It looks like your color/WB is off. Rather than use the flourecent setting, I'd suggest using a custom setting. Also, if you shoot in RAW, you can easily adjust the WB after the shoot, on the computer.

    Are you shooting with the camera resting as seen in the photos, or are you picking it up to shoot? If you are keeping it on the table, then I'd suggest that you use the self timer (if you aren't already) and use a smaller aperture (along with a slower shutter speed). This will give you more DOF, and allow you to get the whole shoe in focus. That is unless you want a shallow DOF.

    Another issue is the reflections of the lights on the shoe. It might be better if you made a front cover for your light tent and shot though a hole. Or maybe not, I'm not sure what would work best. Maybe you can just clean it up in post.

    .....now, would i be able to shoot all shoes with the same settings and have all shoes come out with the true color? It has been difficult to bring the true color of the shoes.....:er:

    You can see lights and whatnot in the reflection on the toe of the shoe.

    lol uknow my art teacher allways sayd that great art starts with carefull observation.
    is that a remote shutter cord attached to a cam set on the table i see? :p

    whitebalance is adjusting your cam for the color of the light in the scene,
    so if u get it right for one pic it should be more or less right for the same pic with
    another shoe.
    then again i wonder if in such a small scene the reflection of the shoe itself
    doesnt color the light enuff to demand adjustments to the WB...
    guys?
