I don't know if this is the lowest scoring Blue but... I'LL TAKE IT!!!
Seriously, this was a very tough challenge. The scope was so narrow and it was hard to think of anything original. In the end I thought that playing around with hues etc was the only way to have this image stand out at all. Thx for the comments and votes... :)

The orange on the baseball is a little funky. I like the composition but the photo appears too dark to tell what kind of field it is and im curious to know how this won a blue

Rudy...you did it again! I think this was probably the first time (and I stand corrected) that a 6.5 scored a ribbon...well done!

Saturation started to artifact the blues and greens in the bottom of the sky - but still a great image. Well done.

Wow! You did GREAT with such a narrow challenge! And how cool is THAT to have 2 blues on the front page at the same time! CONGRATULATIONS! Very deserving!

Congrats again. Excellent image although I'd love to see a less saturated version. The ball looks radioactive on my monitor. :P

love this image ... =8
and an innocent question .. is the green hue straight out of the camera? ... i'm not absolutely sure wot you can do in the basic challenge ... like selective editing etc .. coz the green looks like a vignette to me .. i could be wrong, of course .. and being new to dpc i want to learn wots allowed, so please dont think i'm being offensive ...

Red on baseball is a bit intense. Nice photo. 6
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/28/2006 01:57:45 AM
Nice idea, composition, execution. The ball looks unnatural, overprocessed, shiny, with overblown whites and reds. I think that you could deepen the color in the sky a touch. I like the image, and think that your perspective for the bench and fence is very good.

i like the vibrant color and the border

Good shot. Compositionally, you've really paid attention, even lining up the right-hand light pole with the links in the fence. Only quibble I've got is the red on the baseball seems over-saturated, but that's pretty minor.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/26/2006 08:39:09 PM
Good use of lighting to hide what could be distracting detail in the background: 7
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/26/2006 03:32:03 PM
Crisp, well focused image. The red on that baseball just jumps out. I like the colors in this (sky, bench, field). Only negative is it feels quite contrived, but how do you get away from that with this challenge? Hmmm. Anyway, overall I like it very much. Good luck!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/26/2006 12:04:24 PM
Very nice...love the color and the composition. The ball, on my monitor (which is not a fabulous one by any stretch of the imagination) seems to "glow" a little, especially the red text on it, but that's not a horrible thing. Just an observation. Good luck! :)

Judging by the halos on the fence and ball, you have over-sharpened this.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/25/2006 08:01:29 PM
Oversaturated for my tastes (the fence on right is getting some weird haloing), but I like the composition and contrast.

The bright orange on the ball takes away from the overall feel of the photo. It is a bit distracting but the composition is quite nice. 6.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/25/2006 02:31:22 AM
Very good shot. Well-composed, aweasome color, light and ballance.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/25/2006 01:47:37 AM
I really like the green hues here, especially against the white of the ball.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/25/2006 01:04:11 AM
overall score: comp-2, MC-2, PP-1, impression-1, wow-0 = 6.
and apart from that, i think ultrapinky colour on the ball is a bit distracting. my eyes are drawn to it all the time i try to look at other parts of image.

I LOVE THE COLOR
