Greetings from the Critique Club!

This image is a very good capture, even in less than perfect lighting conditions. Sometimes you just have to make do with what is available. Personally I find your shutter speed very slow for a basketball game - I would probably shoot at least 1/400 if not faster - but you give no details on camera or lens, so difficult to critique your choices. Did you shoot on *green camera* mode? If so then the camera made all the choices, not you, and you can tell.

The main reason you did poorly, as I see it, is because the image is OK...but you used so much blur in the post processing. If the image itself is not very good, then all the work you do in post only shows up all the more because it is so obvious, as it is here.

This is a very, very competitive site where capturing a good image is first and foremost in people's minds. If the pp work done only highlights the weaknesses in the photo, you will not get a good score.

My apologies if this sounds harsh, but that is how it is.

Feel free to PM me with any questions,
