Didn't do much here. I was watching a softball game and taking random artistic shots between innings. I didn't even know the "circle" challenge was open. Crop, brightness/contrast, and that's it.

First Impressions
I can make out a few circles, but they are not the main shape that comes to mind when I view this image.

Photograph Information, Technicals & Composition Review
In the context of the Challenge, trying to place the 'circled items' further into frame, perhaps along a 'third', would have helped give them more impact. I can't help but wonder about standing further over that bucket o' balls and getting an interesting circle full of different colored balls, but that is another image.

Oh - just read your Photographer's Comments and see you didn't shoot this image for this Challenge. It does usually help, especially with a Challenge theme such as this, where the subject matter is 'more important' than the photographic technique.

Comments, Score & Placement Review
128/149 is low down the pack, but I guess that is because most voters didn't see 'circle' when they viewed this image. Your score of 4.53 also reflects that.

You received quite a lot of comments and all are quite helpful, but none really give explanations of why you were scoring low overall, however your average of 5.33 from your commenters is quite good and shows some of them liked the image, regardless of the Challenge theme.

Summary
For this Challenge, there are a few circles happening in this image but none of them strong enough to make it a contender for a high place in this Challenge.

Lots of distracting dead space...I would've cropped out at least the upper left-hand corner, that would've helped get rid of the bulls-eye crop too.

although this is a good shot...I think I might have knocked over the bucket...but then that is why "you" took the picture...
