Hey there from the Critique Club

First off, congrats on a new top score. It's always nice to have a new image sitting there at the front.

Camera Work/Technical: I am pretty sure that the hand and ball are in focus here, but it is really difficult to find the main area of focus. I think this may be because of your lighting.

Lighting: Your subject is a bit too dark. I'd like to see some fill flash added in there to really make that ball and hand pop.

Composition/Content: Well-done. I like the action that you captured here using your composition.

My Opinion: Adding a little more light on your subject would have really helped bring this one to life. As it is, finding your focus is a bit tough.

Thank you for the opportunity to provide a critique on your entry,

edit because I clicked the submit button too fast.

Great idea, but need more focus and sharpness on the hand and ball

Excellent DOF, it makes me feel that I am right there ready to throw the ball. The ball is slightly out of focus.

A sharper focus on the ball would be nice. It all just seems a little fuzzy.

Nice shot. The background seems to be exposed nicely but the main subject are a bit underexposed IMHO

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