The net spoils it.

Great detail and nice idea. Wish the net were a touch more "invisible". A shorter DOF would have done this I believe. Great colors. If you use the rule of thirds when placing your subject, you may get a little more interesting composition. :)

Meets the challenge. Less net, more triumphant subject might work a bit better but it's nice overall.

This definitely fits the challenge. Clever use of the net.

Not bad. Not WOW either. The net in the foreground doesn't really serve any purpose in my opinion as it doesn't add or strengten the composition, but rather distracts. I find there's too much unnecessary elements in the picture (the trees, the fence, the white sky, the net) that doesn't really help focus one's attention on the theme of triumph. I would try filling most of the frame with the subject so his expression and sense of triumph is large and in your face. The whole thing looks a little too staged. Hope that helps and good luck for future challenges.

like the POV, he doesn't look sweaty enough to be that thrilled at the "victory" :)
