I like this idea. You chose a baseball that was worn, which shows a lot more character than a new baseball and that is great. The only thing that seperates this from a #1 ranked photo, in my opinion, is the lighting/white balance. While I am sure the ball isnt completely white, I feel it couldve been closer to actual white and maybe brightened it up a bit, if possible. I like how you captured the full reflection, and didnt cut it off. Well done! Hopefully we'll see this on the front page!

I like baseball shots. I guess it reminds me of being a kid. Good entry.

Great representation of one the USA's most famous sports. The composition doesn't work that well for me - maybe less of the reflection to focus on ball more.
