Top 20? Relatively well, I guess! Congratulations ... although I personally gave you a good score, I saw so much ranting about what was/wasn't a "sport" I thought pocket billiards would miss the cut ....

Great capture and nice idea - but who gave this 1? These voters simply need a slap! ;)

Lots of implied motion in this image. I'm not sure that the choice of perspective is ideal, however. Also, because the balls are so scattered, so is our attention. Our eyes are pulled in several different directions.

I love the composition here of having the other table going off to the upper left, it gives a feeling that maybe there are a bunch of other pool tables. Nice action as well... very well done capturing the movemtn and everything, having the persons hand in there was a good idea... overall this is just a very nicely done shot, with great lighting and great capture. I'm goiing to give this a -10- congrats and good luck!

Could have called this one "Three in the corner pocket". Nice angle.

The motion blur is well done here, but it would have been better if the focus was on the balls instead of the far side of the table.

pretty color saturation

I think a tighter shot of the break would have been better. The table in the background doesn't add anything to the photo in my opinion. I do like the motion on the balls though. Good luck in the challenge.
