i would cropped in to the right side.. drew more obvious attention to the shadow.. burned the basketball shadow more.
good concept though.

I take back some of my comment, since I never noticed the duality.
Sorry!

The shadow is neat. I felt that the photo was too busy with non-significant objects to really catch my eye.

two sports in one shot -- what are the odds?

nice shadow on the back board, better if the head was not in the bottom of the frame.

Interesting how you managed to get the shadow of the ball and volleyball player's hand above the netball net. Perfect title. A very thought provoking image.

Took me a minute to "get it", but once I did I raised the score. I like the concept and the "extra", but as a stand alone shot it is kind of boring. I can't see the expressions on any of the players face and the head sticking up is a bit distracting.

A neat juxtoposition (sp?) of the shadow on the hoop.

A good eye! Unfortunately quality is not there.

You can tell by the extreme shadow that you tilted the flash/camera to the left, would've been more effective and nicer if the flash was upright - it't be more natural [and well, professional] looking.

What a great capture! It's amazing that you were able to get that action with the shadow. Very nice job.

Love the Peter Pan Shadow hoop trick. Take away the crotch grabbing, foreground head and plain background and you would have scored big time. Thanks.
