Critique Club Review:
Color, Saturation, and Hue: N/A Image is monotone (Sepia)
Brightness and contrast: Both are very good, though right at their limit. Detail is starting to dissapear right below and to the right of the Rawlings logo.
Focus and depth of field: Focus is nice and sharp, depth of field is appropriate for this image.
Very nice compostition. I could see this hanging in a clubhouse or restaurant at a ball park. I like what looks like a shadowed glove in the background, and what appears to be signs along the outfield fence.
The biggest thing I see that hurt your score is that there was probably a fair number of people that didn't see the weathering in this image. The ball looks a little scuffed, but not old. A tattered old baseball would have worked better for me here.
Still though, a very good image with a lot of potential, and in another challenge would have scored much higher.
