As cute as this little smiley is, I find that this particular image fails to send across any sort of message or interest. The blurred out background makes it impossible to know where this is. Sometimes this creates mystery but its obvious that in this image that its only focused on the ball. I believe that had they shown the background more clearly that it would add to the image. Also, one half of the ball is extremely light, while the other is extremely dark. Although I like tonal range, with the subject in question being the only focus in the whole image it makes it to busy. To much going on in one place with nothing to help balance it out.
Needs work. 4/10
