I think this photo should have done better. In the Motion challenge it would have kicked some butt. Top 10 atleast. But in the Blue challenge .........

hehe... thanks emorgan49. I didn't take as much time with the picture as I would have liked. There were better pictures but this is the one that showed the flag... which had the blue too. This was during a tournament so I couldn't walk in front of the ball return and I wanted to show as much of the body as possible. Funny, all but one of the comments were very nice. I thought it would have done better too. Anyways, thanks for the kind words.

i bet you were upset when you found out the next challenge was motion, right? very nice shot, the nice subtle blues in the background really add to the picture. 8

Don't it annoy you how you don't know in advance of the following weeks challenge!

Not even a good motion shot. In that everything except the motion is to be in focus. Here there is nothing in focus. Which I do realize you know and intended. But it's just not appealing at all to the average person though, especially to me. Sorry. PTL 1

What a perfect entry for this week's Motion Challenge! You should really go and take another shot like this for that challenge. I'm sure it would do very well. Works well for "Blue", too.

Ohh drat - perfect for a motion win! grat for blue too, I like the flag
12/03/2002 12:38:00 AM
Oh man that's great! Good job!
12/02/2002 10:07:00 PM
Would be great for the "motion" contest, too! Good dynamics.

Very good motion shot, could have easily fit well with next week... The blurring gives this one a very painterly effect, and the pastel colors add to the surrealism. Just for kicks I tried boosting the saturation of this image in photoshop and really liked what it did to the image as well.

Too bad about this week's challenge... Great action shot.
12/02/2002 09:30:00 AM
