I was at a minor league baseball game and the first thing I noticed was that the outfield walls were plastered with ads to the point of distraction. If you're watching the game you can't even track a ball in the outfield. I thought this was a fitting commentary on the intrusiveness of advertising in our lives.

Nice idea, seems a bit dark, but maybe that's because the TV screen contrast. Not thrilled with the cropping, could you have brought it down to just the sign? Or maybe move even distances from the edge of the sign to the edge of the picture.

good popping colors. somehow seems a little dark though. try raising the levels of just the midtones. that will brighten the overall pic without further blowing out the sign in the center. also the image seems slightly tilted left enough to be be distracting. lastly, i think you could give this pic a lot more energy by trying a more interesting 'angle of attack', not quite so straight up. . . mag99

There's some useful information in there somewhere - oh yes, there it is - the time. This is a great illustration of how over commercialised sport can be, I am sooooo glad the UK hasn't sunk this low yet.

Don't you just love it? You can hardly find the baseball for all the SELL.

Good idea for the theme, could've found a better example.

A very good choice of subject but a little under exposed and a very conventional angle - perhaps could have been made more dramatic by getting closer and taking the photo from lower down. Or maybe from the side.

The contrast is a little muddy

However, I think this would work better as a panoramic shot (640x427) to get at least the whole FoP billboard into the shot.

nice and sharp; red on bottom left becomes focal point, needs some more balance on the right compositionally in color

I personally love this picture. I think it really speaks to the age we live in... advertising is everything. Great detail and colors.

hehe, I love this one. The purpose (scoring board?) is drowned in propaganda, how typical!
