Hmm. Well-conceived, but the sky doesn't look quite natural to me.--Chris

I assure you that the sky in that shot is natural, obviously the contrast was enhanced, as for the other one, I used the dark strokes filter. And by the way, i am only 15 years old and just learning, so if you could pass me by some hints I would welcome them greatly. Thank you for your comment

There's a dark spot in the background, left side of the picture, about halfway up. I think it must be a basketball somebody else is throwing. I know it's germane to the setting, but it also vies for attention from somebody who's pondering the image. It would be easy to remove it with the spot healing tool.

I didn't get my first camera until I was 19 or 20, and I was nowhere near as good as you are now. I applaud your work and urge you to attack it with continued verve.--Chris

great shot. it's a shame we couldn't see slightly more of the ball. no, in fact it adds pace and dynamic to the shot. well done. i think that chris is right about the ball in the background too.

I have come back to this a couple of times Nicholas and my eye goes to the background. I am not a good role model because I am mostly guilty of not getting the DOF right for the image. You might want to look at gausian blurr in photoshop. John
