This will only make sense if you understand basketball - the fact that the backboard is missing above the hoop makes it tough to use as a backboard. Hence, it's only good for those shots that are "nothing but net". I figure this is one of those things someone would sell on eBay, though I've never actually used eBay...

The standard is in the "courtyard" where the trailer I work in is located. I take lots of pictures of it for no reason at all and felt that I should enter at least one of 'em.

Well, I love it! Matter of fact, I'm jealous cuz I have a photo assignment due for a backlighting assignment I have in a photo class I'm taking. . .and I can't find ANYTHING! This would be perfect. The sky is so pretty and blue and the subject is silhouetted so perfect and interestingly. But you've given me an idea for today at sunset. THANK YOU! :)

I really like the colour and silhouette, as well as the fact that the glass still shows detail!

Nice silhouette, though I feel a shoehorn in it.

I like the simplicity of the tones and colors. Perhaps a slightly different angle or a different composition would be nice here. Good shot!

Ha! Nice and ironic, Deb. :) Not voting, of course, but I still like the shot.
