Regards,

Bob

On the plus side, the subject look sharp and well separated from the background. Subject selection/crop seems wanting.

I think this is one of those shots where you see it much stronger than your viewer because you know what it is ... and you viewer doesn't. Sometimes you have to make it more obvious/clear to your viewer than you might otherwise think is necessary.

To me ... I see the "arc" but it is subtle and I'm not quite sure how you can accentuate the "arc" even more for your viewers. Took a stab at the crop to "square" around the "arc" a bit to strengthen the "arc" contrast.

@RustyBug improved crop - at literal level, ball would surely help; I was seeing a more abstract level which apparently misses the mark for interest - nothing ventured, nothing gained

Thanks for your looking and comment,

Bob

Jim,

Thanks for looking - organized chaos? - Yes, that would be an accurate impression of rugby

Hope to head to the NW in several weeks, and, more traditional venues.

-Best,

Bob

+1 ... nothing wrong with a "swing & a miss" once in a while, when you're on your way to "knockin' 'em outa the park"

I think this would be fine, as long as there was another way of establishing context (sans the ball) ... i.e. other pic, part of an article, hanging in the clubhouse, etc.

I also think it works much better if your were to entitle it "Tussle", "Struggle", Fight" (or whatever the appropriate Rugby term would be). With it titled "Tussle" it now makes me wonder what they are 'tussling' over. I can see the uniforms, so even without the ball, I can project some kind of sport, or school attire. Then it becomes an "I wonder" if they are competing ... or are they fighting ... with no ball to give the clue. The facial expression on the background player has a bit of "wonderment" on him as well.

As an abstract @ "arcs" ... maybe a bit too subtle. As a story piece, I think it still works fine ... just play on the "missing ball" via the title.

BTW ... Diggin' the tension in the LLC forehead & forearns.

@RustyBug,

Crop works and focuses more - debated but let the un-cropped version loose. A little mischief on my part - happy folks stepped up to comment.

Curious if cognitive dissonance isn't at work here also - players define context and expectations overriding abstract - maybe I'm waaayyyy too far out and reaching for a point that does not exist?

Thanks for taking the time to re-work and corral the image.

Regards,

Bob

Bob; If our home ever sells we are headed NW... Found this quote and thought it appropriate....
"The question is not what you look at but what you see."
                                                                 Henry David Thoreau
You have a great eye for detail...
