The composition is fun, as are the colors. It would be good if something were in focus in the photo - either the guy catching or the background.

The photo nicely captures backyard sports - blur and all!

I give you credit for actually capturing the action of a sport, thank you. Faster shutter speed would obviously help to freeze the motion (though I know many cameras aren't capable). It looks like there was also a bit of camera shake, which doesn't help with the blur. Post-processing was a little overdone, perhaps on contrast, so the colors look a bit unnatural. And of course everyone on this site loves impossibly clean backgrounds, so if you could shoot this from an angle with less background clutter that would help.

Don't like the quality and colours...

way out of focus

This shot is way too busy and blurry to really make it stand out.

Subject is out of focus. Keep trying.

To blurry

Focus not sharp. Looks overexposed.

Great action and interesting lighting. However, there are some compositional problems with this picture. The background is very busy and distracting. The guys feet are cut off and the football gets lost in the telephone pole.

IMHO overexposed and to blurry.

The photo isn't in focus..

nothing seems to be in focus, the ball is almost invisable, the way it lines up with the pole, and the crop looks odd at the bottem, with his feet cut off, a difarent location would have helped.
