I took a similar shot a couple of weeks ago with my FZ30. when I saw this challenge come up I knew I had to try it again with my new camera to see the difference.

I really wish it was an advanced editing challenge so I could clone out some things I don't like. Oh well, can't have everything.

- crop
- curves
- saturation
- fix color cast
- size and save for web

Hello from the Critique Club

First Reaction was where is the action? But it doesn't say action shot in the challenge.

A good shot, nice DOF and crisp, Maybe the shine on the ball is a tad distracting but no spot editing in basic.

Composition is great, love the angle and the post in the back. I like the way the ball fills the screen. You could have even cropped it a little more on the left and removed the trees, they don't really add anything to the picture.

You have a great porfolio of pictures.
Thanks for allowing me to critique your photo.

Keep shooting and have fun.

Very nice perspective and contrast of the new ball to the weathered goal posts...

I love the depth of blues in this shot, and it's artistically composed. No action though...

great composition and good exposition control perhaps whit highlight and shadows you can obtain most details in the dark area.

Nice composition that evokes the request of action. Like the color choise of ball against sky. Good luck

Despite being a nice photograph, this entry does not fall within the parameters of this weeks challenge. That being said, I must judge this photograph accordingly. :-(
