Golf is his life. He still plays a mean game. He's won 5 senior tournaments in the Houston area over the years.

He is on a tee box which allowed me to get low to get the sky in the background. I still had to lay down on the grass to get the shot.

Used a flash from the right to balance with the late evening sky

Good to see a full-body, environmental portrait. A well-done character shot.

Great shot, love the use of location and golf club to add to the shot. I like the angle as well, makes him look more imposing which compliments the proud look.

What a great statement of authority this shot has. I love the POV of the camera. The shadow from his left arm is the only technical distraction in this shot.

How I hate your dad!! Just one round under 90 would do me.

He's in great shape for 80! I like the warm light and the full body composition. The upper sky is a bit grey... not sure what your options were there. Nice warm, soft, side lighting. Well done!
