The black ground really gives this an interesting flavor. Great capture!

How I wish this weren't so dark - bocce--the motion of the left hand figure are wonderful and a great response to the challenge

Bizarre! Very dynamic use of mono, but I'm not convinced that this is a good sporting picture. It's creative in technique and composition but I find myself frustrated at the lack of context. I won't forget it though.

I like the composition, the spacial awkwardness, and mystery in this one. Does one have to be Brithish to make some sense about what is goig on?

Bocci ball? This is really interesting, not sure what you did here to get the outcome you got. I think it is pretty cool actually. A very artistic look at the sport, which I like, no one said sports had to be a straight on action person to person, background blurred shot :-) This is very cool, I love the black and white, and you can just kind of see whats happening without having to see the front of the people. I'm going to go out on a limb here and give this a -10- because it is so unique and interesting. Nicely done!

not sure what's happening here, could be my fault - interesting body postures, exposure is nice (assuming you wanted a black ground)

I really like this one. It should be called "Showdown in a black hole" Hehe. But nice photo. 8.

Interesting photo but what are they doing? Maybe i'm just dense... still trying to figure it out

The textures and form of the man on the left is wonderful. Great composition and a very creative take on this challenge.

There is too much black space in this image. I have no clue what these people are doing, because I feel like they are invisible people.

at the same time I like and dislike the pure black field. more detail would make this clearer, at least as far as where the balls are (they look like they're in midair). but also the black and white of it puts a ton of focus on the men and their stance and their clothes, and there's a real old-fashioned feel to it. It's growing on me.

Strange, but interesting.

Wow - very unusual take on the sports theme. Good capture with both jacks being sent out to and an interesting composition repeating the theme.

Is hard to see which sport is it.

I like the black and white in this photo, but I can't really tell what they are doing, maybe I am missing something?
