So close! Well done Andi, I'm really pleased you stepped out of your 'comfort zone' and approached the Golf Club to help you with this shot :o) I won't even try to offer you a critique as you've done far better than I ever could! Congrats on giving ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', '/') + 1) . ' Falc a good run for his money too :o) XxX

You got a yellow, well done man now the BIG CHALLENGE starts.

Congrats. You almost beat Falc! The masking isn't too bad but I wonder how you resized it. I find that using bicubic smoother is better for downsizing if there is a lot of thin lines you want to preserve like that golf club shaft as it doesn't make the lines so pixelated. Or better yet use both bicubic sharper and smoother and then mask the two together so that you get the best of both worlds. Anyway just a thought.

Yep, you and Falc got my only two 10s. I still love this. :) Congrats on the top 10!

scalvert: I told you there'd be golf swings if you used that as an example. Now I can't DQ this.

GeneralE: that's too bad. It might even rob you of your ribbon.

scalvert: why are you grinning??

Okay, I'm giving out two yellow ribbons to photos that will probably ribbon anyway, but they're just too cool for me to pass them by.

Nice perpsective, nice job.

Good example of keeping the head still through the entire shot.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/12/2008 03:02:43 AM
What fantastic colours! The time-lapse treatment of the golfer actually detracts from the general scene I find ;)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/11/2008 10:57:56 PM
I like it, great colors, well processed.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/10/2008 06:53:55 PM
wow..it's like golfing on acid. awesome!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/10/2008 02:05:18 PM
great colours! nice swing
  Photographer found comment helpful.

This ought to come in pretty high. The edges around the figure and clubs look a little oversharp, though.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/10/2008 12:03:29 PM
We should have a standard way to comment on these things, maybe there is but I don't know about it, so my feedback is:

Shot Originality: 5
Meets Challenge "theme": 10
Composition: 7
Exposure/Post processing: 3 (blown out sky and seems slightly oversharpened and pretty heavy on saturation)
Title originality/appropriateness: 5
Avg: 6
Score: 6

my two cents. hope this is helpful.

colour of the grass and the sky look very artificial 7
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/10/2008 01:42:12 AM
It's an odd place to tee up a ball, but other than that your picture is great and illustrates time lapse perfectly. Pretty good looking swing too!

After seeing a Wii commercial tonight...I msut say your processing resembles theirs. Looks similar to eyewave's picture with a map from a few months ago.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/09/2008 07:00:17 PM
You should sell this to a bar at a golf course. Just clone out the ball on the tee.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/09/2008 05:57:16 PM
The sky is absolutely gorgeous in this shot. I had to double-take to see that the ball was actually hit off the tee...WOW!!!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/09/2008 12:30:19 PM
Neon green that looks more poisonous than organic. I'm guessing over saturated. I think you've done the masking and erasing well, but it wasn't easy.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/08/2008 10:35:52 PM
Wow... strong colours here, and a cool timelapse. I think this one will ribbon.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/08/2008 08:09:56 PM
Nice colors! On the verge of being oversaturated and over processed, but i think it looks great!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/08/2008 07:34:39 PM
Nice. Love the colours in this shot.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/08/2008 04:15:06 PM
Great looking picture but i think you'll find you can't tee up there, unless of course there is a local rule in force ;-)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/08/2008 07:54:30 AM
My first thought was cool golfing shot, especially with the sky. But then I saw two balls in the frame and that kind of ruined it for me. The Sun over the horizon is a bit of a distraction as well. Looking at the image in general, I have to wonder why someone is teeing off right next to the green. In the end I think it is a cool shot that is just troubled by some minor details. 6.

Cool shot, I love the the vivid coloring. The action is awesome!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/07/2008 07:19:58 PM
Surprised I haven't seen more of these golfer shots. Good job on the golfer. The nauseatingly over-saturated colors in the shot really make it look amateurish though.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Beautiful sunset background. The grass is a bit "too" green for my tastes.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/07/2008 06:03:58 PM
way too overprocessed for me.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/07/2008 05:24:53 PM
Love it!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/07/2008 03:03:24 PM
This is gorgeous. I really like the composition and the colors. But why is he driving near the green? No matter - one of my few 10s this challenge!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/07/2008 02:00:29 PM
great action sequence, but the colors are overdone in my opinion. Also it doesn't look like he is teeing up from a tee box, but just off the green.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/07/2008 01:20:34 PM
Actually, wrong title, it should be "Great Shot!"
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/07/2008 11:27:24 AM
This is really nice. I'd like it better if the ball were not teed up in the rough, which is not a legal golf shot, but...
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/07/2008 10:42:33 AM
I can personally say that this shot is almost impossible to do in one motion if the guy is taking a real swing... Good luck getting verification, or lucky you for having an expensive cam.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/07/2008 10:25:19 AM
Fantastic. What really makes this picture pop is the background. Makes me anxious for Spring to return.

this actually made me laugh! wonderful idea
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/07/2008 09:12:29 AM
This is fantastic. This has to ribbon.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/07/2008 03:49:24 AM
Can't work out why you teed it up in the semi-rough ;-)
Never mind though because its a great image (nearly said 'shot' there)

Nice colors and great sequence! Good job...
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/07/2008 12:38:08 AM
wow...that really is GREEN...perhaps a little oversaturated, but otherwise amazing...9

This is something Doc would have done. I recon those colors.
