who plays duckpins anymore?

I like that their arms are motion blurred - good effect.

Good motion here. As I look at it, I am almost worried that they are going to throw the balls so fast and hard that it will break through the back wall! (I guess it really is the "express lane"!

Good choice, I think color would have been a distraction here.

Very nice -- I like the sepia toning, and the motion is super.

I like the idea behind this but feel that a faster shutter would have made for a more interesting shot. I think itís a perfect concept and you had the timing right only that the blur detracts from the image rather than adds to it. The sepia works well and the overall balance is good. Nice effort.

I like the motion in this.

Good idea, color (or lack) gives it a dated feel matching the motif of the location.
The motion blur gives it a candid moment feel. The framing is a little off center, not necessarily bad, just gives it a little "offness" to me - but that could be part of the candid I suppose...

very cool action candid!! love the sepia tone
09/02/2002 01:42:00 PM
Nice one. Wouldn't like to be in front of these two ladies.

I think this is a really neat shot... especially with the motion blur. This shows a nice sense of movement. I don't care much for the sepia toning in this one though. Sepia is generally used to give a feel of old or antiquity, and this image doesn't have a subect that lends itself well to that theme... = 7 - jmsetzler

I like the movement in this one.

One of my favorite this week. perfect exposure. great motion.

I like the sepia toning, I find it's always difficult to decide when to go 2-tone and when to stay in color. Good picture, gives a good sense of being there.

I love to go bowling. People always get mad at me when I go at the same time as the person next to me. I think that you should have left the picture in color.
