Zuiko and "The Beautiful Game" Challenge

E-3 with Zuiko Digital ED50-200mm f2.8-3.5 & FL-50R
76mm, F/10, 1/160s, ISO100, Wireless Flash TTL

So far, this is my best entry to the challenge. It earned 12th spot. This challenge was titled as such because the theme was to capture "anything to do with sports aside from the players or the action itself".

The flash was located remotely to the right of the frame, approximately the same distance as the camera to the balls. This created an isosceles triangle with the balls being the reference point. Thus, the TTL measurement for the camera and the flash was similar and exposure was spot on!

The low angle of the flash created a long shadow as if the balls were witnessing a sunrise. In my opinion, that's what caught the eye of the voters in the Challenge.
