I had to go to the Putt Putt course and borrow the red ball. Then I had to get on a green, place ball and shoot. All while avoiding the golf course marshall. I only had a few minutes between golfers.

I didn't like my 1st batch. So I went out and reshot some more. Didn't like those, and decided to go back with this one. I hope it works.

My title is a Dean Martin quote.

Fun title. Nice depth of field. The top of the ball seems too overexposed, though.

Looks like the reds got blown out as there is no detail on the upper left third of the balls.

8 - Good. Criticism; the lighting(?) on the top right of the ball detracts slightly, would like to have seen the 'dimples' all the way around. Good texture on the grass, whole composition and set up is good.

Open challenges suck. I'd like to see this later with the glare on the ball cloned out. The only other minor gripe I have is I would like to see the hole a little more to the left to increase the compostion. Good composition even with and very vivid red grabs attention immediately. This would make a great stock photo.

Quite nice, but I think if you had put the ball into the corner a little more and then placed the hole in the opposite corner it might have made it a little more balanced. The detail in the ball is nice, although its a shame its lost some detail towards in the highlights.

Nice image all the same though, well done.

Nice idea and well composed. A distracting flaw is the red is blown out to the point where the detail on the ball is lost.
