    Technically I still think this may be the best shot in both challenges. Beautifully lit and presented.

    Perhaps I got a bit lazy with it, but the requirement was just a one second exposure with no other demands. Had it requested to illustrate the passage of time by showing movement, eg. I would've obliged. As it is, the folks are left with "still" life captured in a dark environment.

    Congratulations on the perfect game. This meets the challenge technical requirement, but sort of misses the point of what you could do with a one second exposure that you might not be able to do with a shorter one.

    I prefer your open entry in terms of composition, but this one certainly shows detail.

    This one does not work as ell for me as the one in the open. II suspect that it should read 'Quite a bit of skill backed up by some luck'. A prized possession for sure.

    Thanks. Actually, we did wash and polish it before the imaging, but the macro lens can see things we normally don't. You should've seen it before we washed and polished!!!

BTW, not to boast but I've had 2 299 games and a 298 game to go with a couple of 290 games. But, that was several years ago. My prowess has dropped severely over the years.

As an aside I've also had 2 holes-in-one in golf, both coming this year. And I certainly don't consider my self an athlete by any means, I just love these two endeavors, bowling and golf.

    Nice shot of a hard-earned reward - congrats on the perfect game! I like the aspect and lighting you used. I only wish you'd cleaned or polished the ring first as the dust and hair are a bit distracting. My best game is a paltry 199, so I have 200 on my bucket list. I do personally know two people that have bowled 300 games and my dad used to pitch horseshoes against Walter Ray Williams, Jr.
