I really wanted to shoot either a watch or golf ball for this challenge. After shooting the watch and golf ball I really liked the lighting better on this one. Its lit with two lights on eachside. Put the tee on a cardboard box, and used black board for backdrop. Took a few shots, and thought this one worked the best. Any constructive critisim would help. Thanks.

The shadows on the object make it interseting. But the background also being black makes it hard to see, it doesnt really stand out. Try a lighter background color, but not white as that would bled with your subject.

The black background makes the the ball stand out as a strong focal point

Great presentation and lighting. I know what's being sold and the shadows draw me in. Just enough negative space for possible text. Nice work.

DOn't like the reflection of the studio light on the left side (it's ok on thr right because it landed in a dimple). But otherwise a good composition and idea

Beautiful shot. It's a shame it wasn't advanced editing so you could clone out the lights in the ball.

good lighting. needs a little more DOF. tilt doesn't make sense here IMO. border is overdone, spoils the simplicity of the shot.
