Used a 150 watt natural light bulb set up over top of the hole angled to try to get the best reflection without glare. Cropped, sharpened, and used the cloning tool to remove some unintentional glare in the ball and to help sharpen the image as well as to remove some small imperfections.

You had a choice of fifteen balls ... is this some form of subliminal advertising? : )

Nice control/use of the reflections.

This is my favorite of the challenge! It's so simple, and so clean. I like centered shots that work in an artistic way. They are quite difficult to do well. Great reflection. 10

Looks like a funny eye...good idea wouldn't have thought of it.

Imaginative angle and reflective illusion on the ball. However, I'd have preferred a tighter crop to remove the context of the outer pocket which would really enhance the illusion. A square format may also have added some potency if you had shot this more square-on.

Reflections on the ball add a lot of depth, great shot.

I like this shot. a creepy eyeballish effect for me. can't wait to read more about the setup. 7. Bumping to 8 to fix my voting curve :) as well as to fit the 8ball.

Very cool, it kind of looks like an eyeball. Love the reflection of the leather on the 8-ball. Fits topic well.

I like the concept; I like the reflections on the ball, and I like the way the ball tells me how to score it: 8.

this is an interesting shot even tho I have no idea what it is supose to be. I think that if the outside circle would have been complete it might have ment more.. to me anyway.
