Challenge #380 - Ball
Posted By: Will in Seattle, 02-19-2017, 09:46 PM

Hi folks,

Winter's almost over, and this week marked the start of spring training for the upcoming baseball season. Since this has me excited for the pleasant outdoor evenings and painfully-slow action soon to come, the theme this week will be "ball." Interpret as you will - no sports necessary!

Best of luck!

(edit - the deadline is Feb. 26th at 11:59 PM PST)

The Rules:

1. Post ONE photo (max 1024x1024).
2. The photo must portray an interpretation of the theme.
3. Post your single picture in this thread and explain what motivated you to take the picture and/or how you feel it represents the weekly theme (especially if it's not obvious).
4. The challenge is interactive. Any response is welcome.
5. The judge will pick the WINNERS and choose one of them to be the judge for the next week.
6. This challenge runs for 7 days plus an additional day for the judge to choose the winners.
7. Any Pentax (or Ricoh DSLR ) camera can be used.
8. Pictures can be from any time frame, not just within the week of the current theme.
9. In case the winner of a challenge is unable to become the judge for the next challenge, then the winner will PM the #2 winner for that person to be the judge

A goal scored in Netball, a game with some similarities to basketball but with no backboard.

I should say this is a composite image. Not sure this is allowed or not, but it's the only "ball" I have worth showing...

Making these photo balls used to be quite popular at one time so I decided to bring the technique back with a twist for this theme.

Good timing - I just took this photo of my dog Addy and a ball. I love the look on her face - fierce pup.

Thanks Slowpez, these are the neighbourhoodcats at our beachhouse in Tunisia. They belong to nobody, but like to come where the food is or where they can play.
