Very good! V1 looks as though the shadow is going to lob the ball back. I love it when shadows take on a life of their on.

V1 is very clever as an abstract. Just enough information to figure out what's going on and a clever use of shadow to help this.
Of course most people start with extreme sports and wind down to bowls in their older age, you haven't left yourself far to go... perhaps dominoes or tiddly winks at the local old folks home is next on your sporting agenda? TongueGrin
