This was taken at Estancia Golf Club. Tony is producing a book for them and he needed a portrait for the flap.
He'll probably choose a close up.
You guys probably want to see something closer!
I'll probably have ten comments telling me that! :0)

But alas, I really like this image and think it's more dynamic than the generic portrait shots I did :0)

Well, looks like Tony choose to go with this shot and it will be getting published (yea!!!) in a few magazines and the book jacket. (the colors are a little dull, as I did not process it for monitor RGB)

I love this shot and I suspect he will, too. Most definitely "in his environment" - much moreso than a closeup would be, particularly given his profession! Very, very nice work!

Beautifully natural colors. I like the flow of this image, rocks cascading down the back, waves of green grass, and pillows of rock in the foreground,9.

Nice composition. I like how you've managed to set him against the plain green of the fairway. The rocks in the foreground and the rocky hill on the left look good.

I love AZ! You've captured the tones of the desert in springtime very well. Shadows don't detract but the DOF could be a bit deeper to capture more of the beatiful surroundings.... Just my opinion.

too much environment, not enough subject; this strikes me as more of a landscape type shot than it does a portrait

Great afternoon light!

nice environment, IMO an environmental portrait gets a little more up close and personal with the subject. 6

Now there's a job! Might be dangerous though. Errant shots and all. Nice photo.

Has to be Valderamma? Now this is a top-rating photo. Great landscape and then added to that is a great image of the man at work. Well done

Nice surreal location and it tells a story well.

Looks like a great course. I love golf so 2 for the person, 12 out of 10 for the hole - that averages out at 7.
