I have no idea what I'm looking at here. Looks like some sort of machine. Don't know how it links to sports, but I'll give you the benefit of the doubt

hmmm...what is this?

It's hard to make out what this is - finally figured it out based on other archery shots (I assume it's a bow).

What is it?
07/18/2005 02:33:51 PM
Too fuzzy at the tip. Is that an arrow?

sorry, i don't. is it a bow and arrow?
07/16/2005 11:24:32 PM
Too abstract for sports...
07/16/2005 10:49:47 PM
Cool archery shot though I think more dof to include the tip of the arrow may work better.

I know what it is, but I'm not sure there is enough visual information for some of the viewers. Might have tried a wider crop.

I am assuming I am looking down an arrow, but I came to that assumption after a lot of work and after junking two previous comments. I think this would work better if either the background implied the action, the target could be seen, or the crop was not so tight that more information was available to us unexposed folks to figure out what we are looking at.

hmmm, maybe i'm just a complete idiot about sports, but i can't really tell what this is, and i don't think it really meets the challenge. sorry

07/14/2005 08:16:38 AM

  Photographer found comment helpful.

I've tried shots like this, and now I can understand the frustration when you can't really tell what the subject is.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/13/2005 07:39:01 PM
I dont think many people will understand this is a bow & arrow.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/13/2005 06:43:02 PM
Took me a while to get this one. Very unique angle and concept.... possibly too unique.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/13/2005 04:00:59 PM
No, i don't.sorry
07/13/2005 03:31:28 PM
what is that, cause i cant quite figure it out...and what does it have to do with sports??
07/13/2005 02:30:26 PM
it took me a minute! Very interesting.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/13/2005 11:23:27 AM
Hmmm...I have no idea what this is and therefore can't really connect it to sports, but it must be some sport thing (I assume). Then again, after about 2 minutes, then it seams to me, that is is bow and arrow and your hand at the bottom. Well at least this one got me thinking, which is good. Good luck.

It's too bad the arrow shaft isn't in focus. I think I would have got it a little quicker then.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/13/2005 09:15:38 AM
i really don't get your point. What sports is this???
07/13/2005 07:23:34 AM
No...I don't get your point.
07/13/2005 01:45:51 AM
Interesting composition, but what does this have to di with sports?
