Congratuations Kai. First top 10. Have to say that I thought it was better than a few of those that finished above you.

They usually do roll, but this trick is part of the fraternity initiation ritual.

I think whats great about this image is that it looks like hes actually moving the 'ball'. :). Good job!

Especially when the ground is tilted to the left.

Looks like he is actually trying. Nice focus and colors.

perfect title, that's exactly what popped into my head when I looked at the picture

Too much clutter in the background. A closer angle and nude male model (or half nude) in b/W would have done the shot, if a bit cliché.

Good idea but taken from a very static angle.

good colour balance. I find the light reflection (Perhaps flash) on the outer hoops distracting.

you would wouldn't you?

Very literal entry but nothing wrong with that at all :) This is really good, very cool sculpture. His face is red, he really looks like he's trying to move that thing!

Nice communication of the idea here.

Nice to see someone finally straining to move the object! Red face and all. I have seen some good tutorials out there on dealing with gray skies to make them pop.

That does look immovable!

good subject, and composition -- it could have used a bit more contrast
  Photographer found comment helpful.

This is a great photo. Exactly what I expect from this challenge. Great composition for this shot too. You did a great job eliminating distracting backgrounds common for this type of shot.

Nice use of lines running from the legs through to the end of the ball. This works compositionally.

Nicely done, good colors focus and comp, 7.

09/10/2008 05:55:55 AM
the idea is good. the shot seems a bit moved, not sharp
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/10/2008 04:59:46 AM
you would, wouldn't you.. lol
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Great shot, but the subject lacks originality.
09/10/2008 12:13:10 AM
compared to other pictures of people leaning on things, this one gives me the impression that the man was actually *trying* to move the object, the muscle in his legs are strained (it looks like) as far as pushin goes, this ones the best :)
