Greetings from the Critique Club :)

Hi bjovik...

The color in this photo is definitely strong and meets the challenge in that aspect. In a closeup shot like this one, my personal preference is that there be some extra sharpness in the image. These balls seem a bit soft and out of focus and I can't really see how that helps this image any... Your sharper focus got on the rear balls rather than the one in front....

Nice idea. I think the cue ball is a little too burned. It's obviously the focal point, but my eye can't get any detail to focus on. Good imagination though.

I like the reflection on all the red balls. I finf the focus a little soft, though. I also wonder why you cropped that first ball. Other than that, I like it.

Nice title - catches your attention :) But, it also allows me to say, "Your balls are fuzzy". Better sharpness would have improved the photo quite alot. Also, I think the crop is a bit tight.

Out of focus in the front, the light reflected in the top of the balls is very distracting. I do like the color here. I don't really like the crop.

Do you have 15 balls?? I hope not.... ;-)

very nice

This one seems fuzzy. I can't tell where the focus is. More highlights might have made this one more interesting.

Very nice shot. { no pun intended } the reflection of the overhead light does alot for your pic. Over all the colors are of a radiant factor and does you pic. well. Keep up the good work.

Too bad the white doesn't get a reflection, huh? I think this one would be better focused on the near ball, not the white. Just a personal pref tho.

I really like this photo. My only gripe is the ball at the front of the photo is chopped off. I would have liked to have seen all of it.

interesting the way the overehead light reflects off the billiard balls.

Not a great photo, but ya gotta love the title :))

Think it needs more DOF, and better cropping.. Too tight up top and bottom..

Snooker....Neat shot, good idea. Light is a little off making a yellow tint, but it's a good composition.

You cropped of your first ball.

Arf arf. The white looks a little green - surely there was something you could have done in touching this pic up to eradicate that??? Good contrast of the reds and green baize though.
