nice colors (or lack there of)... nice detail on the ball and nice lighting. this seems like an image that could be done really bad or really good. you did it really good. good job.

Great closeup of the baseball and gloves. Love the sephia tone, it really makes this composition moody. The dirty really helps to give the leather a worn feeling. I can really see this hanging inside the headquarters of Wilson. "10'

Nicely done but a slight lighting change might inprove the texture feel.

I like. Used to play a lot. Can feel that ball in my hand. Interesting composition. I wonder if you've received comments about lack of texture?

I feel the lighting is too flat to reveal the texture that is there.

pheww about time a decent image came up - voted 50 and none grab me. Hope you win, everything in this image is great. Very rare for a DPC image to provoke a feeling or two but thisis nice and old and kind of warm. 10 only wish i could give you more. Best of luck.

I love the composition of this, but I wish the lighting was such as to show off the texture of the baseball a little better.

love this - b/w treatment works well here - very nostalgic

Nice mood, It's refreshing to see a photo that captures sentiment.

I like it and I see where you are going with it, but I donít really connect the photo to a creative interpretation of the theme texture. Not off topic or anything, but I think of sports, somewhere around the 1950's or so... There's something in the picture that makes you think about other things than texture. Choice of motif? Colour range? Don't know and can't exactly pinpoint it... But I like it anyway...

This is a terrific texture shot that fits the challenge nicely. The black and white approach works too.. Nice job.

Great sense of the texture of the leather. The choice of an old, well-worn ball was a good one. A new ball would have been a lot less interesting.

does little for me, this. I'd say your biggest problem is the lighting - you've communicated little or no sense of the feel of the ball - and surely, especially an old ball, ought to have a great feel?

Yes they did, today! More glove or less glove may have enhanced the ball...

Now this is a real nice pic - the sepia makes all the difference- I think this wouldnt look any better if it was in B&W or coulour - this is the best.
Really nice.
But there is some noise on the right.

really like this one.

Would of liked to see more of the glove. The ball is slightly overexposed, and not quite in focus, so the texture isn't as sharp as it could be.

good focus....nice shot on this one...

Nice shot, fine detail and lighting. I like the sepia treatment. Nice DOF

Just needs a bit more focus. I love the aged beauty of the old ball and the tones are good too.

+ Great shot with excellent use of light and darkness that shows us the textures. Your composition is very good.
- Can't think of any.
