love this shot ......... =8

Wow, great light throughout. I don't even mind the highlights being blown out on the right side. The soccar ball and goal post tell the whole story. 8

Great POV and the colours are almost perfect - just a bit dark on the floorboards as I'd love to see the detail in them: 7

Nice low perspective, just bring ball closer and crop out some of bottom. Interesting light.

....is that a soccer ball?, but still a nice shot

Interesting angle. Goodwork

What a great gym! Wish I could see a bit more detail. Maybe if you shot in overcast conditions or late in the day (oooh... warm colors!) you'd have less contrast to deal with. Still, one of my top picks. 9

Beautiful! I love the lighting and the tonal range on this, and I'm so glad you didn't center the ball.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I love the perspective.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/26/2006 02:38:33 PM
I like the image, but something about that big ball really annoys me. It is like the photo is out of proportion, or something.
Nice lighting, though.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/26/2006 12:07:45 PM
Great reflections on the floor. Like the uncluttered look with just the lonely ball for the subject.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/25/2006 08:26:44 PM
While it seems a little too dark, I really like the composition and the moodiness (which is probably a result of it being dark, so don't mind me). I like it.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/25/2006 07:36:08 PM
Love the lighting and the rich hues. This is a subtle shot that doesn't hit with a "WOW" in the typical 2-second-view-per-vote but has much to offer those who take longer and SEE.

EXCELLENT!!!! the lighting is super!!! one of my favorites and only 10s in the challenge!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/25/2006 05:54:15 PM
nice job, a bit too much dark foreground though. nice angle
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/25/2006 01:27:45 PM
Nice. I really like this. It would be more "DPC" with the ball right in the foreground, but putting it further back in the composition adds a real sense of loneliness to this.

Nice. That soccer ball was throwing me off for a minute. Thought it was some HUGE medicine ball or something near the far wall! :D It may be old but seems well kept. Nice POV for this photo. Good luck in the challenge.

I would have moved closer to the ball so you can see more colour contrasts.
