Yay a blue! This shot was a pain to take but worth it. The ball on the left is a giant basketball size tennis ball I had laying around the house. The hard part was getting to a outdoor tennis court that was open in December in Toronto. I ended up having to climb and jump a 12 foot fence to get into the closed off court :)

I thought for sure you placed a same size ball on the left a little closer to create the illusion. Hard to tell without any other reference. Great shot and congratulations on the Blue.

Way to go, Jovan! What's funny about your story is that you could have shot this anywhere - you can't really tell that's a tennis court. :)

Heh, cute idea. I imagine the left ball being for a very very large dog ;)

Great idea, and really well executed.

LOVE this shot. The reflection, the DOF, the bright pop of the neon green!
My only complaint is that it appears slightly tilted. Had it been straighter, I would have given it a 9.
But I'm still giving it an 8.
So far, one of my highest voted in the challenge. :)

took me a full 20 seconds to realize only the left is a real tennis ball. thought it was a telephoto shot with some clever DOF manipulation, but nonetheless still a very pleasant photo.

That's a BIG ball and you went through a lot of trouble to do this shot. You painted one of the ball?! Great job! 9
