Nice idea, composition, color, shadow. A newly flattened tennis ball might be better and brighter.

I would hae liked this more if the tennis ball didn't have mud on it. Very nice composition.

I like the minimalistic feel of this image. Great idea; hope the DNMC patrol isn't after you. :)

Lovely colours. To be honest I think this might have been nicer without the ooky tennis ball in it: 8

The almost centered composition is rather distracting, other than that, great image!

love the composition - not too much the colors, though. A little more contrast would help.

Very good composition.

The ball should have looked more deflated. Lovely composition though.

more saturation would make this stronger to me - nice creative

I like this.... very simple yet striking! Everything -composition, lighting, colour, DOF - works well.

Creative. Good composition. I like the line. The exposure or processing is a bit on the overexposed side. 6

Like it its simplicity and the story behind it. Lots of sun here, so the colors seem a little faded.
