Very nice image. Even though 20th place here is a heck of an achievement I think you could have done better with a little lower angle and showing more of the baseball field and sky.

Nice perspective and it definitely has an "after the game" feel to it. As far as "challenge merit" I like how this is clearly a sporting venue and that your "subject" is something that really is likely to have been left after a game (vs. say a bat, glove or even a ball). Nice strong lines.

a USM might have helped a bit but still a great photo with good texture, composition, lines, etc.

looks a bit weird to me, too much processing!

Nice image even if the thing in the foreground looks yucky! The blue trash can and the colours in the sky give this something that B&W wouldnt. Good POV: 8

Nice story behind this scene, that makes me think what happened here before it. Nice angle and composition. If I'd change anything, I probably would crop the wall out and move the towel more to the center of the bench.

I bet on a single towel there could exist millions of tiny microbes and things. It's difficult to imagine anyone actually using the towel and feeling clean. On the plus side, you have a nice sky.

the lighting is kind of funky for me but it definitely meets the challenge.

This could be sharper or more focused. Would score higher then but still a good image.

nice view point that is slightly let down by the image quality which doesn't seem all that good.
but i guess it could be the nitty gritty look you were after?

Of all the "stuff left on a bleacher" shots in this challenge, yours feels like the most honest. I might have cropped out the sunset in the background just to create a more consistant range of colours, but it's still good this way too.

too light of highlights in my opinion
