Looks stretched.. how'd that happen?

The only thing it's missing is a more visible hoop and net. I'd prefer to have the ball not cut off too.

Good "City Life" shot! Maybe if you zoomed out a little the left player wouldn't be cropped. This would also show a little more of the surroundings and thus stressing the contrast between the city (skyscrapers) and the "life" (players) more.
Photo 8, Creativity 7, City Life 10 = 8

Great capture. If basketball isn't city life, I don't know what is.

This looks nice in color, but black and white or sepia looks cool too. My only suggestion would be to have a horizontal frame so that there are more of the ball players. The buildings provide a nice backdrop, but I think since the subject is the boys, it would be better not to crop their hands off.

Good mix of action and "city life".

Nice photo, but the aspect seems wrong....Did you stretch this image (just a little)? I like the clock tower reflection in the blue building, cool.

Good shot :) Inner city basketball is definitely a good choice of city life :) = 8 - jmsetzler

Great photo for this challenge. You captured something a lot of people have struggled with. Strong in the areas of composition, action shot, and colours.

this image is great, and it captures city life, its nice to see that some photographers got the subject correct,

Nice photo too bad they put those ugly utility poles in the background.
06/27/2002 04:13:00 PM
I like the lack of signs (helps with idea of "any city") and the sense of impending motion
06/26/2002 12:00:00 AM
Nice pic but what's with the stretched image? On purpose or not?
06/25/2002 11:57:00 PM
I like your subject very much. Your exposure and shot timing were also good. Unfornatually, when you resized your picture you didn't maintain the aspect ratio, so it appears a little compressed horizontally.

1 of 5 10's good job
06/25/2002 03:38:00 PM
the basketball, man! ya cropped out the ball
06/24/2002 08:32:00 PM
Great action shot. Definately a winner.
06/24/2002 06:48:00 PM
You caught the real thing! Good job!
06/24/2002 03:59:00 PM
Really nice... Cropped a bit tight on the left side for my tastes, but real nice shot
06/24/2002 03:32:00 PM
Seems a little distorted? Was that intentional? That aside, nice image quality. The scene is accentuated with the large buildings in the back. Good job
06/24/2002 03:08:00 PM
Good capture. Another position might have been prefered. Did you have a chance to take multiple pictures or were you forced to take 1 and run? If you could have taken more you may have gotten some better shots.
06/24/2002 01:10:00 PM
nice... : )
06/24/2002 01:00:00 PM
Good visual of citylife! Nice colors, action, DOF. Kee
06/24/2002 12:22:00 PM
Exactly what comes to mind when I think of city life
06/24/2002 12:02:00 PM
ball is out of position
06/24/2002 10:51:00 AM
This really captures concept of city life. Image could show more action.
06/24/2002 04:16:00 AM
Great shot of life and the city! 7
06/24/2002 01:13:00 AM
this image appears to be stretched vertically or compressed horizontally.

Like the buildings in the background.
