I got the idea for this from a ribbon winner in the Perspective Challenge... I put my own little twist on it. Hopefully you enjoy it, it's my first entry from my new Konica-Minolta Maxxum 5D.

"Line Drive" is a nice entry into the Children's Toy challenge. I think it is extremely hard to try and create something like a previous image, especially with voters. They seem to only like when there is a new twist on an old idea.

The image itself is excellent in my opinion. I think the placement of the ball is excellent and demands attention. Great job with a brand new camera, that had to be a hard part of the challenge for yourself. Personally I might try the placement of the ball just a little higher so that the trademark r is not cutoff. Then this might increase the composition just a little bit, don't get me wrong I really like it but maybe just a little more ball. Overall you did an excellent job with this shot, I think voters were just looking for something a little different in this challenge.

Good setup...

Interesting composition. Definitely eye catching. DOF may be a little too shallow. But as a baseball fan, that ball is way too high to be a line drive. More like a pop up.
