I am the pitcher, and my mom took the photo. I'm wearing my Boston Red Sox shirt and hat (Go Red Sox!) and I'm in a throwing position. My dad held the baseball. I predict about a 5.8-6.0, but we'll see.

did you just hold up the ball and take the picture?

Looks too fake.

It looks like two balls in this photo? Also there is no second basemen or outfielders as far as I can see.

I really like the concept you have used for this shot. House in the background is a bit distracting and also the white circle which I assume is on the fence or is there two balls in the actual picture? - it takes away from the shot. Nice sharp closeup of the ball. A creative idea and perfect for the challenge. Well done.

I think I would have liked the reverse better . . .focus on pitcher, ball in motion . . .

Very nice idea. Some spin on the ball would have made it even more realistic (but it would also have complicated the execution).

I get the feeling the ball is held and not captured in motion, which would add 'wow' to the image. The theme represented very well though and dof is just right 7
