Aperture: f/2.8
ISO: auto
Shutter: 1/15sec.

I got this idea from a client of mine, who collects sports memorabilia. I thought it was a good plan to capture part of "America's favorite pastime" for this challenge.

Tried to get a shot using both a red and a blue background, and the blue was the better choice.

Cropped, bumped up saturation of reds and blues, auto-contrast, despeckle, border added, presto!

Fantastic! Rich saturated colors, sharp and clean. Looks like a homerun to me!

Nice composition within the frame. One personal opinion is that the ball looks too "new" and the background too solid - but just a personal take on it.

Wonderful selection of background color - the deep blue really accents the white and red of the ball. I'd like to see just an ever-so-slight rotation down of the ball - so that the stitches did not merge with the top border. Perfect exposure showing great texture on the ball. Black border is (too) powerful. Top 10.

Wonderful color and focus. It seems like there is some pixelation or something at the top left of the ball. Good shot.
