I know this will bomb on DPC but I like the way the guy is framed to show he isn't being included in the match. I'll get numerous comments about "the blurry man in front" but if he was in focus he would only distract from the main subject of the photo.

Anyway, might as well start my 300D life with my lowest score ever, then I can only work up :)

Nice example! I like the focus, the left out guy is clearly the main subject. I do wish the standing fellow behind the net was a bit more blurred though. Use of available light is pretty good. I like the black & white aspect of the piece, though it doesn't look truly black & white to me. Well done. 7

Being lonely in a group. Good expression, I like the blur of the front figure and the isolation of the sitting figure.

This is a good image in the idea that you did a nice job of conveying the feeling "alone" while having other people in the frame. Good job.
