Sorry, my prediction didn't come true. It really could have been higher but top ten is not bad. But look at it that way, 24 people gave this a ten, certainly far more than the others in the top ten column received (except the blue). And looking at your scores so far ... you're showing a lot of improvement ... a ribbon is not far away. Hope to see more of your work!

I like your bio statement, "Tear my photos apart, I'll do it to others." I think that's a good attitude to have around here.

Well, I finally got a chance to look at this photo on my Nokia monitor. Although the colors do look a little brighter on this monitor, I still think they look a little subdued. Just for the heck of it, I opened the image into Photoshop and ran Auto Contrast on it. I think the result gave it a bit more pop.

I'm sorry I didn't get a chance to give this a second look during the voting. I gave it an 8, and probably would have bumped it to a 9 or 10.

Anyway, congratulations on your top-ten finish. Great photo!

This probably won't score really high, but I love the sea of blue and orange. The way you filled the frame with them is superb.

An interesting take on the challenge. On my monitor here at work (21" Viewsonic G810) it appears to be slightly under-exposed. The colors look a bit dull. Increased exposure or a levels adjustment might have helped. I'll have another look when I get home tonight. My Nokia monitor is much better than this Viewsonic. If it looks better on that monitor, then I'll bump the score up a bit.

awesome shot, is this a crop of a bigger shot?

There are a FEW images in this challenge that look artsy, and this is the best. I really like the sea of repitition with blues jerseys, orange numbers, shiney helmets with their rising ray pattern - it's really great. Detail gets just a little fuzzy on one helmet toward the top where the action wasn't quite stopped. Good luck in the challenge.

I like this one a lot! I like the repetition and the simplicity of it all. In a way, all of these random numbers remind me of scary math class dreams I've had!

That's a very intimidating sea of blue and gold. This is the only shot I've seen with everyone facing away from the camera that I actually like. It's a very nice capture and a well composed shot. Good job.
