Nice idea and exection, wonderful lighting. I'd prefer a slightly tighter crop. I like it.

I like the conversionation - dramatic. The shadows show the lateness of the day which adds to the sense of "after the game." The compostion of the bat, ball and glove is nice.

Very nicely done... a good venue, very good composition and processing, and that all-important sign that a game actually took place. Should finish somewhere in the top three. 10

Very nice atmosphere and composition. :)

I really like this. The B&W works well, gives it more feeling of lonliness and emptiness.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Very evocative of loss, of failure. I like. Great use of light.

Great contrast, composition.

I like this, It captures the lonliness of the empty ball field. The leftover equipment makes you feel it's AFTER the game as the challenge stated, (even though I realize it could be staged)rather than just giving you the feel of an empty park any time.

Overall, I'm not really bowled over by this, although due to the tough challenge, I'm trying to overlook that. The high contrast really makes this image pop and gives a nice first impression. After that, though, my eye has a hard time figuring out what to look at since the whole image is essentially diagonal lines. For this challenge, quite nice, but it leaves me feeling a bit flat.

nice! another 10

Not a unique concept but this is well executed. There is a lot going on in the frame but I'm not too distracted from the bat and gear. A tiny bit cropped off the right would help: 7
