*Critique Club*

The greens really stand out in this photo but sadly to say the rest of the photo just isn't there. Luckily for you the greens are your main focal point but the greens are so bright that it makes you wonder why the haze over the background. I can't help but wonder if it is a humid haze or a fog coming off the water. Possibly photographing this at a different time of day or an overcast day may have given you a different outcome.

In all this is a very pleasing image and it does meet the challenge. Nicely done.

Cropping out the background mountains, would have held the color. Fantastic foreground / subject color. The back seems washed. (Filter/Crop ? )

The colors are different yet Crisp and very nice

An excellent shot. And I guess it could be cropped for a magazine. Not too shabby. I like it.

Beautiful shot! This is one of my favorites of the challenge... 10. Best of luck.

Beautiful shot, I'd love to golf there.

Seems a bit contrasty, to me, the colors are lovely, and it does make me want to golf there, if I golfed.
06/11/2003 09:30:42 PM
I think You should have cropped a bit to the top.
06/11/2003 06:39:16 PM
Perfect colors and soft fog in background... really nice shot / i love your composition: half top in gray and half bottom in colors.
06/11/2003 05:55:37 PM
Stunning-- Im gonna say 10

Haven't heard of your magazine but I know there are golfer mags out there so I'm cool with that.

It's a pretty landscape shot that is a little less obviously a golf course than I would have chosen, but the flag in the background does give it context (and of course it would have a different context once cover copy was added). The shot is crisp and clean, it shows off what would probably be a challenging part of a course, from what little I know of golf. The focal blur on the background gives plenty of space for cover copy, as does the reasonable homogenity of the grass. A crop would not ruin it in the case of a full-bleed image. Overall a good job, however little I like golf. :)

Personally I do not consider magazines to be in a horizontal shape... thats just me though. This is a cool photo though, and I could definitely see it as the front of a magazine if it were oriented differently. This is one of the better landscape shots however. This looks like a beautiful golf course.
06/11/2003 02:00:51 PM
Definitely a beautiful shot... I especially like the sharp lighting on the greens with the soft, misty scenery in the distance. While it's not necessarily a factor in my evaluation, I'm afraid the portrait vs. landscape orientation issue may cost you points.

nice, i love golf
06/11/2003 10:56:15 AM
This is a truly beautiful shot. Great light, beautiful saturated greens, and the misty background makes the beauty leap out at you. Nice work.

Now the secret's out! Everyone'll want to come to BC and you'll never get a tee time! -- Striking shot! 9

a peaceful image. You could crop the entire top 3rd off - it's too dark and indistinct to add much. The course looks great.
06/11/2003 01:26:48 AM
This should be in portrait not landcape. Don't like the cropping. But nice content!
06/11/2003 12:33:23 AM
this must be the course up around squamish, shot makes me almost want to take up golf : )
