Nice action shot I really like the way this looks.

Nice shot! The perspective really gets the viewer in there. Also, all those things that a photo "needs" are missing -- sharp focus, no noise, straight lines, nice colors, etc, and I think that is exactly what makes this shot work!

Super image! You caught quite a bit of emotion, along with action. Love this!

Awesome shot - I love the motion you caught in the bowler. My only peeve is the Danger No Smoking sign - I find it catches my eye before the bowling ball does.

Great shot. Fun use of the fisheye and I like your pp. Wow, you caught the ball in the air and the action of the bowler, too.

Cool! This is pretty good. Actually, it's quite a fascinating image, it makes you feel like you're there. Weird. I really like this.

What's a "diagonal fisheye" anyway?

Fascinating. I've never heard of this before.

I really like the coloring here. It helps make the motion interesting.
Good shot.

Good job on this very cool 70ish action/candid shot. The Fisheye adds a neat feel to this.

great action shot! LOVE the wide-angle distortion... the whole thing has a kind of album-cover feel.

I love the slightly grainy acid-look alot. It makes this photo look very artsy and cool. Is duckpin bowling different from just regular bowling?

Well, seen 4 pictures of duckpin bowling now (2 here and 2 on the Wiki link). Since all four are rather grainy, has this anything to do with an old dutch grainy drink, called jenever?

Just kidding, but they all look very grainy.

What a fun picture! I really like the angle & the editing you used.

I like the perspective of this picture along with the movement being captured. I think the graininess adds to this photo.

Great shot! The lens distortion works perfectly here, as does your crop. I love what those colored lights to the left add to the composition.

It's only noon on day one and you've already been bowling? Tsk...cheater.

Fisheye works great here and I love the processing. Not only did I learn what duckpin bowling is, but this type of shot makes me really want a fisheye.

Love the curvy thing you have going on here and the perspective. Processing is awesome. I'm so there!

Great action motion blur shot from you here. A great image for the start of the slice of life side challenge. I like it a lot.....

Gee I just read what duckpin bowling was, and I am impressed, as with my small hands, I think I could manage this game, except, I think my wobbly legs might not stand up to the challenge.

GOOOOAAALLLLL!! Oops, I mean Strike! Actually, I had no idea what duckpin bowling is (thanks wikipedia!). :) I agree with Karen though, cool retro feel to it, neat tones.

How'd you bowl? I like the distorted perception of it and the acid feel of the colors. Fish eye??

Great action shot, looks like lots of fun! I love the perspective, the colors and the graininess.

This is such a great shot! Lovely pov/perspective, I feel like I'm sitting in a chair watching her ball go down the alley thing (hehe, you can tell I'm a bowler can't ya). Superb pp.

Oh and Congrats on the win!

Neat photo, has a very retro feel to it, could be something from the 50's.
