well i love the shot and the composition and subject are superb however there are a few issues here that could have helped.

the first is quite simple, the horizon is sloping and this is a major distraction. it could be levelled up quite easily in Photoshop. ( if unsure pm me for assistance)

the major issue for me is the sky which is a key feature here forming the backdrop to the action part of the image.

if you had looked at the sky and agle of light you would have seen that the more brighter left side would burn out in the whites when basing the exposure on an overall screen average reading. this really detracts fro the image and is fixable but would be a significant task to undertake and would change things from the original scene as taken. turning around slightly and moving further to the left would have meant the net was not coming direct at you and would have cut out the brighter area of sky.

the actual image and action has been caught very well from a timing point of view and im certain there are some remarkable images to had there, just image at sunset the effect.

hope this helps.

Its a nice shot, and all of the feedback by Phil applies. I have just loaded a mod with the horizon straight, and tried to deal with the burned sky. Since the horizon was off, cropping was needed which loses some of the sides. I used some of the sky from the right and cloned in on the left, and sharpened a little.

Hope this is helpful,
