My dad has been playing beach volleyball for years. On this particular occasion, I happened to have my camera with me. I snapped a few shots. I really liked this one because it shows the strain and all-out effort that it takes to win.

TBlack and white does not provide the impact here. but I like the composition

the border really detracts from an otherwise decent picture. great capture, good bw, bad, bad border.

This looks a fun photograph and brings a smile to my face. Plenty of action in the image too. I wonder, perhaps, if it would look even better with some extra contrast and without the 'horizontals' of the line behind the figure and that of the road. Otherwise - a great capture, well done!

I did not care for the white line border. The shot does not seem to have enough contrast, too much of the same greyscale.

Good use of B&W, comp and lighting are good. I do think that this frame detracts a little from the picture because the white frame is brighter than the white ball or shirt worn by the player. Still an above average score. Like the expression, more of an "I'm happy to be playing" rather than an "i gotta get this" look.

Fantastic expression - made me laugh out loud. :-) I'm not sure I'd have gone for b&w. As you did, it's looking ok, but the image seems fairly flat to me. I'd have tried to increase contrast/levels to bump it up a bit. Excellent capture too - you caught the action nicely.

This is a really nice action shot and great for this challenge. It seems like it would be better with a bit more contrast to give the subject more depth and texture. Still, it's great that you were able to capture this shot.
