This shot was taken at Baker Beach here in California. Some dog had left his tennis ball sitting in the sand along the shore break, so thus the title and composition. I hope some people enjoy it

hahaha! Yes, sure wish we had made an appointment. We could have run interference for each other!

I really liked your tennis ball find for this shot.

Great job! Unfortunately, although the technical merit deserves praise in this photo, it just isn't interesting enough for me to vote it any higher. I've seen this all too often, and the tennis ball doesn't help it out of the rut. Your title is very cute though! It's still above average, so I am raising my original vote form a 5 to a 6.

I like the foggy atmosphere over the bridge, contrasted with the sharp foreground. Cute title.

I love the composition but I think there is a little too much space between the ball and the bridge

I'm surprised you didn't find dozens there leaving land mines everywhere.

How sad it that!

The bridge takes all of the attention away from the ball which, given the title, I assume is the intended focal point of the photo?

Solid shot, nice colors and composition. The tennis ball and title add some humor and an extra "punch" to the whole thing. Good job!

I think that the idea is very good. The subject of the photograph is the ball and it is out of focus.

Kinda contrived setup but cute title more than makes up for it.
