Not sure what your question is but the feet face forward =)

The open part of the "foot" faces forward. If you are still not certain just check on the Canon website for canon lenses, or the manufacturer's website for other models.

What lenses did you get?

Depending on what other accessories you are also using, it can make sense to mount the collar "backwards."

The foot mounts facing away from the camera and I don't have any Canon tripod rings but I would assume the dots are to make sure the camera is level.
