Never managed to vote all the shots in this challenge. But i am really surprised that this excellent shot did not place MUCH higher.

Really nice shot which fits the challenge very well.

Best of luck in future challenges.

Nice shot, but not sure that I like the processing.

Hmmm, this one is tough for me to call. It looks very journalistic - even like you ripped it right out of the sports section.

But, it isn't that interesting or intriguing as a photo. Who is the guy, the coach, a fan, a suspended or injured player? I'm not sure what would make it better for me, something is needed to pump up the intrigue a little bit.

too processed.

My fav in this challenge.

Maybe not so much photojournalistic, I dunno - I know nothing about photojournalism!, but it is a work of art. The vertical banding only adds to the image with its raw blownout-ness and poor definition on the scoreboard.

Lo-fi at it's best.

cool high key photo, the effect was achieved with ... ?

Is this some sort of style, it looks like a bad photocopy, sorry i don't get it

The photo is too grainy for my liking and this appears to be post-production because it extends ove rthe arms of the person.

well composed shot. It would be nicer if it didn't have the stripes through it.

I don't know if many will like this pic, but I think the vertical lines, grain and B&W really add to the emotional impact of this photo. Great pose - his body language and the distant scoreboard tell the whole story.

The processing is a real turn of for me.

Too much processing for a headline photo.

I normally don't like sport photos but I like this one. Nice work with this!

a terrific shot ruined by a texture. I'm sure I won't be the only one to comment on it. Took your score from a 6 to a 4 for me. keep shooting these great shots, easy on the photoshop :)

Why so grainy? This image does work for the human interest side of sports.

too artsy for a paper

This is a good idea, and I know you were going for the 'newspaper' look, but the sheer amount of empty space in this picture isn't really what you'd find on a frontpage newspaper picture
