too grainy

I like it.

Good idea. Too artsy for me. I would like to have seen this in color and sharp.

2 - DMC - A shot of a real 'boxing bout' would have been better. Too grainy.

I personally do not care for grainy photos. I also think the photo could use a bit more contrast. The boxer's arm blends into the brick too much.

Poetry is giving the most information with the fewest words. This photograph is a poem. One of my top 10 favorites of this challenge, it received one of my highest votes.

nice shot though seems a bit over processed or that could be just due to very small file size ?

You probably got a bunch of negative comments on the graininess, so here is a positive one. I think it adds a little punch to the shot (pun intended) by reducing the photo to the raw and basic elements of the composition.

My favorite image of the challenge...the "dirty-ness" is very appealing...such wonderful textures... the shine of the punching bag, the musculature of the forearm...also, this image conveys such brutish power enhanced quite nicely by the roughness of the grain...nicely done.

Powerful! Hope the "grainy police" aren't killing you. I think it adds emotion to the shot...

I normally don't like grainy photos, but it fits very well in this case. Good job!

I'm sure you've already heard this! But this is GREAT!! The grain really works here. Excellent composition.

Like the grain of this photo with the color and subject matter. Wish I could see more of the boxer than his arm and the bag, though. Maybe seeing the determination in the boxer's face as they trained or something.

Like this a lot. The graininess is perfect for a gritty boxing photo. Beautifully lit. 10
