6 - Like the concept, and while I recall seeing similar shots 'elsewhere' in the past, not sure so if this is original, well done. Criticism; seems to be some gamma/contrast/reduction issues in the reds/oranges. Perhaps a sharper angle, creating a more 'dramatic effect' may have made this better in my opinion. Also, I think more 'movement' in the balls in 1/3 could also have enhanced the effect you have already achieved, but difficult to get this right I imagine. Possibly a different composition, especially in 1 & 3, allowing more balance and visual 'effect', may have also made this better. The light reflection on the balls is detracting/distracting, but could also have been used for added effect, with some 'diffusing', not sure how though. Like the potential here. Frame(s) work well.

Very cool concept. I like that. It seems like your white balance is kind of off though. The whites look very yellow to me. Maybe some levels or color adj. could help?

Nice composition, the lighting seems slightly off to my eye (too yellow).

I feel the white balance is out in this photo. I don't like the yellow cast! It would of been excellent if that had of been addressed.

Great concept and shot. Personally, I would prefer a more "accurate" white balance. Good luck!

for me a far more natural story-line in this would be: unbroken, cue-ball, the break.

Love the idea. Unfortunately, the shot is hampered by the strong yellow overcast.

Was this lit with a utility lamp? It looks like it has a terrible yellow cast. The red is oversaturated too (which I find common on digital) The idea is creative and the composition is good. 6

nice idea, but the yellow cast to the light dulls the impact you have achived.

Original and inventive. I wish I had a pool table!

Great shot! I like your composition for each photo. I think the center shot could improve from som increased DOF, and all the shots could be improved by adjusting the color balance/curves. There's a lot of red and yellow here. Nice job!

Bingo! Not just a shot with a border slapped over it. Love the colors and the arrangement.
