|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.... :)
