Ooh. First ten for me. I love the glowish lighting. Looks like that basketball has been bounced around alot. Fantastic.

i dont get it

Nice image. I would have taken a more aggressive approach with the hands - spread the fingers and squeeze, to add some athletic intensity to the image. The hands seem like they are cradling or caressing the ball, which, to me, doesn't seem to fit. That's pretty picky on my part, so take it for what it's worth! Again, I like this image.

Nice dramatic lighting and also dirty texture on the ball.
