I suspended a golfball above a 'piston pin'. I put a minimag flashlight inside the piston pin and taped toilet paper over the lens to diffuse the light...

i like the home-made remedy for the lighting solutions! good shot. i would've taken the brand name out of the shot if possible. the black is off, but its probably just my monitor. great work!

I think you should try this in black and white.

Hi John:

This shot came up in forums as we typed in random image numbers. You win! LOL

Interesting shot, and I really like reading how you accomplished it.

the light source is distracting or uninteresting or something.

Excellent lighting, love the ridges on the "tee" and the knobbly bits on the ball. Gonna have to mark this up 1 'cos it gets better every time I see it.

Great shot! Love the creativity (but have I seen this concept before? :P) I wonder if it woudln't look even better if you had softened the light a bit to eliminate the harsh reflection around the 3. One of my favs this week :) 10 Lisa

Very clean. Very professional. Great technically. Subject doesn't have a lot of pull for me, but it is an excellent use of light. 9 ~indi

Great lightning. Good exposure. One of my favourites this week. Well done! /carsten

how do you think of this stuff? ; ) would it have been better to have overexposed your highlight a little bit if it had meant the overall scene would be lighter? mag99

sounds like fun

Creative! Your picture came up after the "The Time" shot for me...LOL No, seriously, very clear photo and well executed. About the only thing that I would do differently is turn the golf ball around where the Titleist logo wasn't showing. A golf ball is very distintive and would have been cool to have the texture without the distraction of the writing. Just my thoughts....9
