Perfect for this challenge. I don't get the title, but I don't vote according to titles :-) The only thing I could wish for this is that the only background was the huge playing field, which would cause the subject to not have his head in the brown and grey of the field's edge.

Could something else be in the photo?

was the grass really that color?

fits the topic well, both literally and in the broader sense, it might have looked better if that outfielder had taken a step or two toward the camera so that his head was below the bottom of the fence, but that's nit picking, very nice shot, hope it does well for you

That is a truly ugly shade. Was the ground really that color, or did you manipulate it? The orange ring is kind of nice, but the subject is too small to make out any detail.

I'm a big baseball fan, so this really strikes home for me. A couple of things that might improve the shot: The player's head corresponds with the line between the field and the outfield wall, it would be better if he was separated more from that (probably difficult to do based on where you were sitting). Also, he is right in line with one of the seams in the padding on the wall which is also distracting. Finally, while the subject is supposed to be small based on the challenge discription, he is a bit hard to make out at that distance, so maybe a slightly closer zoom would have worked better. All in all, though, a very nice shot.

One of my favorite players in MLB (Torii Hunter), playing center field at the Dome with the baggie behind him. but not a very interesting image. It meets the defination of the challenge, but that is about where it stops.

shame the red is bisecting his head. slightly lacking in detail in the foregrouns - may just be the turf, but looks a little artefacty.
