Hi from the Critique Club --

Ben, Ben, Ben...I should have known this was you. :)

As usual, the photograph is technically excellent and very pleasantly framed. This also would have been a great entry for Right Angles.

My only two comments are that the background, since it IS kind of abstract, might not have worked so well in this challenge because it pulls the eye from the subject. In a larger shot where we can see that it's actually the case, that might make more sense.

Secondly, I would like to see a version of this where the focus is on the very foreground and the racquet stretches out of the DOF into the distance. Just a thought....would be nice to compare the two.

Congrats on shooting my favorite sport! You should appreciate my Future entry if you're a fan as well.... :)

This is nice. I think the background is a bit of a distraxtion, and that some lighting which emphasised the string more would be good, but I like this.

Would have preferred a completely black background.

meets the challenge but not a very eye appealing shot

I like the "funky" blue background below the strings, it really looks good in this shot. I think you should have used slightly more DOF if possible and focused more on the front/middle (instead of the middle). Good job!
