    I like it on the whole, but I think the frame takes away from the photo somewhat. With such a simple image, I'd go with a simpler frame, maybe just one single slightly wider white line, instead of two different coloured ones.

    I think what this photo is most lacking is a sense of character. Other than the deflated b-ball, what else is there? Really it's just a ball. If the attempt was to get over an idea of "history" - context clues would be far more useful. Newspaper clipping, an old photograph, etc. - something that connects (in our brain), that were looking at history.

    Right now its just a basketball that someone forgot about.

    And you have a yellow color cast.

    good point about it being just a ball. The idea was kinda "old forgotten about ball" like said it lookedl ike so im glad that stood out, but i see how adding a picture or something would really start to tell the story. I never noticed the yellow tinge till now, thanks, Im not sure if its cause of the light i used or the WB was off.
