What a wonderful capture of expressions! I like the faded border, but would have done without the red line border. The photo itself I hope is framed and available for that young man (your son?) Wonderful moment and you've caught it so well.

love the emotion captured here, excellent clarity, centered focus and vibrant color. I also like the faded border, but maybe you could of did without the red inner border. Great shot

Congratulations on your top 20 finish with this memorable sweet image with a kiss of ambiguity which gives it added charm.

Nice shot. One question... why is he wearing a St.Louis helmet and a Cleveland uniform? - no need to answer ;) 7

Really well done, nice colors, full of life, and free flow of excitement gives it both motion and emotion. Should do well.

The border works, but I don't know about the blurred edges.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I'm not usually too opinionated about borders, but I find this one very distracting because both the frosted edge and the red box occlude the subject matter.

They are really happy, I don't know this game but it seems fun. Clear color, good contrast and the frame makes it more artistic!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Great shot. Lots of emotion. I gave it a 10.

he has a cardinals helmet on so i have to rate this one a good score no matter what!! :-P fun atmosphere

I like this border, seems like a 'dusty' baseball game if you know what I mean. Great color too
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/05/2005 09:44:36 PM
isnt it a contradiction to wear an indians jersey with a cardinals helmet? lol
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/05/2005 07:48:09 PM
I like the capture of the mood and color.......dont like the border
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/05/2005 04:32:09 PM
nice action shot, however i can't say i like the border.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/05/2005 02:30:34 PM
Brilliant capture, perfect for the challenge, and (although I am one to talk!) I dont like the border much, but i understand why you used it. Still I am not going to hold that against one of the best shots i've seen thus far. 8

I like strength in the colours here (Red White and Blue) , how the focus is on the subject and the others are softened out of the photo. The framing actually works here. 10
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/05/2005 07:01:24 AM
Great teamspirit there, I like the framing.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/05/2005 02:28:08 AM
Excellent use of the border and you can see the pride oozing from this young man. Great shot and good luck!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/04/2005 08:29:20 PM
nice candid capture of a happy mood
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/04/2005 08:09:01 PM
This is a great use of a border. Not only does it bring the focus on the player being congratulated (which is what seems to be happening), but it helps the shot from feeling too cluttered.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/04/2005 04:58:48 PM
wonderfully captured moment. like the composition and the softening beyond the frame line (only wish it wasn't cutting through the fellow's face on right) one of my ribbon picks.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/04/2005 04:58:28 PM
This is one of the best shots here! I even like the way you used the frame and the highlighting. There is color and movement; your eye is drawn to the central figure yet your eyes travel the whole image..well done...9

05/04/2005 05:38:37 AM
good natural capture.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I really like this picture, but i have a little problem with the red frame. 6
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/03/2005 04:29:55 PM
Fantastic action shot!! Well done! I'd have scored it much higher if you hadn't included the red border. I like the soft edge effect, but the border is really distracting. (8)
  Photographer found comment helpful.

This is a really wonderful spontaneous picture, perfect color and excellent clarity, I love their expressions...the frame and border diffusion are just a bit strange and distracting.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/03/2005 12:30:05 PM
That one look familiar.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/03/2005 10:36:33 AM
the border takes too much attention away from the subject
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/03/2005 10:20:09 AM
I really don't like that border which just screams for too much attention. Especially as it cuts though the faces of 2 boys. Shame, as it's a great shot with good emotion and has been exposed well.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/02/2005 09:14:53 PM
I can hear the crack of the bat on this one. You feel his pride just beaming from the photograph. I also like the frame and fade. Bumped up to a 9
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/02/2005 08:35:10 PM
hmmm I don't know about that blurred and lined border...don't think it needs it
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/02/2005 08:14:43 PM
I like the border and this shot meets the challenge very well. 9

What a great capture. Not sure about the outer framing, but absolutely love the shot. Love how sharp the kids are and you can truely see the happiness in their eyes.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/02/2005 04:56:55 PM
not crazy about the frame and fade, but shot is great
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/02/2005 04:14:42 PM
Not sure about the graying fuzzy border. The faces in the image have enough emotion to stand out without the extras. The version on your PaD does more for me.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/02/2005 01:56:27 PM
I like this picture, very very gd, really does convey happiness and the border only adds to the overall effect.. congrats
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/02/2005 11:41:41 AM
This is awesome. You really can feel those kids' emotion. Il ike your border too. Dpc voters have historically given people a hard time about borders -- but I think it realy works for you here :)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/02/2005 11:38:43 AM
Great capture ! Beautilful smiles and nice colors. I like the "dreamy" effect around the picture, but I hate the red border (maybe too think .... i don't know)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/02/2005 10:22:27 AM
I'm sure that I'm not the only one that dislikes the frame - great photo though
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/02/2005 09:47:59 AM
nice capture and image but thtat border and filter really ruin it for me
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/02/2005 06:32:54 AM
good expression and capture, the frame detracts a lot from the power of the picture
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/02/2005 05:58:51 AM
lets see... Indians baseball team.... Laurie :)
great capture really shows a great mood, you have balanced the shadows well
but not to shore on the framing one or other would have been better, but no deductions for that ~ 9

05/02/2005 05:00:04 AM
A winner, not sure there is a lot you could do with this, well done
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/02/2005 02:24:26 AM
Great capture and super colors. back off the border, especially the fading. The red border was plenty. I really like borders but I think this one will be held against you by the voters.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/02/2005 01:33:48 AM
wow...one of my favs... 10
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/02/2005 12:52:09 AM
WOW, talk about nice crisp and vibrant colors!!!! I wish the two boys weren't looking at the camera though.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/02/2005 12:44:10 AM
Great capture of a lot of different reactions to the home run. The border obscures two nice expressions. Borders generally do not add much to an image and yours did not need it.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/02/2005 12:31:15 AM
Border is very distracting and takes out 2 of the players faces. Would have been a 9. Gave you a 7.
