Got this idea as soon as I saw the challenge, but took me all week to finally get off my butt and do it. Been awhile since I actually shot an image specifically for a challenge. Hope people like it.

Critique Club Review:

Color, Saturation, and Hue: N/A Image is monotone (Sepia)

Brightness and contrast: Both are very good, though right at their limit. Detail is starting to dissapear right below and to the right of the Rawlings logo.

Focus and depth of field: Focus is nice and sharp, depth of field is appropriate for this image.

Very nice compostition. I could see this hanging in a clubhouse or restaurant at a ball park. I like what looks like a shadowed glove in the background, and what appears to be signs along the outfield fence.

The biggest thing I see that hurt your score is that there was probably a fair number of people that didn't see the weathering in this image. The ball looks a little scuffed, but not old. A tattered old baseball would have worked better for me here.

Still though, a very good image with a lot of potential, and in another challenge would have scored much higher.

Love it. Great focus and use of harsh lighting. The focus on the dirt really emphasizes the grittiness of the photograph. Great work.
