Had fun playing with this one. Don't expect it to score high, but had a chance to play with some of the advice I've received from commentors. Thanks,

Border is a bit thick, but the post-processing renders this image interesting, the net is especially compelling.

too much saturation

obviously, you stopped the motion. however, the post production really takes this image to a different place, somewhere more like digital art than photography. don't get me wrong--i like it--i just don't think this challenge was the best place to show it off.

Nice concept. Still getting a little blur around the ball which is going to probably take some hits in your score as the challenge called for no motion trails, etc... Have some noise going on in here also, especially evident in the sky area. Cool capture nonetheless. ;^) Good luck in the challenge.

I know it is a personal taste but I like the processing. Well done.

love the grain and the red/blue contrast very much, border fits the picture really good

i like the colour treatment in this picture, i think the light grain and the high contrasty feel adds a lot to the overall style. it also draws the eyes direct to the ball, so that seems most effective. unfortunately, it also makes the slight blur to the edge of the ball a bit more obvious, which lets the quality down a little bit. i'm also not that keen on the border; i appreciate that the style kind of emulates that of the board behind the net, but it just seems to fussy here. but, overall, i like this mcuhly. 7.
