No question about meeting the challenge. ;-) The grayscale background is a good idea, but possibly overdone. The result makes the ball look like a flat illustration. The bottom edge and the ball's shadow could stand a bit more light.

Nice shot. You don't often see Pool photos from right above but it works well. I think I would prefer it in full colour though. The symmetry works well with the overall composition. Your border is a bit uneven tho :) 7

clever shot, very intense.. unfortunately the texture of the table makes the photo look grainy and overworked. a very slight blur might help a little with that

I'm not sure what happened here. I think the de sat might be the culprit. the front of the 3 ball is fine and shows great depth, but the back half of the ball looks flat and without dimension at all.

Very nice. Desaturation of the colors except on the ball really emphasize the subject.

Selective saturation is somewhat cliche now on DPC, but you used it with a creative composition, graphically attractive, so i like it :)

technical issue: the upper left part of the ball is desaturated.

nicely done composition including the selective color, interesting to view

I think the green of the billard table (assuming it is green, some are maroon) would have made a very nice contrast to the red 3-ball. The subject would have stood out very well without the selective desaturation.
