A visit from the critique club :)

As some of the previous people have mentioned, the image is grainy and a bit blurry but I think the camera is at fault here. I went back and looked through the images taken with an FD-73 and they all look similar to this. So, I guess you can't do much about that.

Some things that could be improved:
1. The lines on the court do not line up with the sides of the photo. It gives a strange visual to me. Kind of like abstracty art. I think eliminating or aligning them would improve the composition.
2. Add a ball. It seems simple but it would make for a much more dynamic image with a ball by the hoop.

I definitely like the idea and I think it has a lot of potential.
You can also try cleaning up the grain using NeatImage (there's a free demo) but your mileage may vary.

I like the idea, and the hoop looks good in the center. The whole image is grainy and out of focus for no reason that I can see. Try focusing first on the subject by pressing the button half way, then move your camera to compose the picture while still holding the button. Viola, your subject will be in focus.

I almost hate to ask how you got this shot!

This is probably a result of your camera, but there are a lot of jpeg artifacts here, and I think the white balance is off

Definitely fits the bill where the theme of this challenge is concerned.

Challenge met. Color and focus seem pretty good, but grain and jpeg compression take away much of the quality of this photo. 5 Swash

where is the ball?

Cool shot... the intensity is a little high, that's why it looks a little grainy... easily fixable.
