Default There's always hope for a Hole-in-one

G'day all

Making amends for no image posting for a while

These 2 blokes were on a hillside overlooking eastern Australia - with New Zealand about 1500km [1000miles] over the horizon ~ still they were trying ... very trying

1- Got me eye on it - let's see it go..........

EXIF = Fuji X-s1; 1/250s x f8; iso-200; camera on hi-speed burst of 10fps

2- Whako - it's on its way - see it fly - will it get there though?

Exif - same as above


Regards, Phil

both nice action shots. Your shadows are very obvious though, perhaps it was late in the day with a low sun. Id try for an angle where your shadows dont get into the image and so dont distract from the subject, along with a tighter crop go get rid of that brown bush on the right side. apart from that i dont have much else to critique.

Thanks mate

The situation & location will never arise again
We were travelling on holidays & stopped for a cuppa, when these wacko's turned up to hit balls out into the surf - and for them it was great fun esp as they had pinched a bucket of balls from a golf practice driving range

So I got these few qwik-snaps as they were laughing themselves silly about what they were up to - and my wife & I went back to our cuppa .... 'white + one please Luv'

no worries, as its the critique forum I assumed you were looking for some constructive critique.

lol these pics remind me of the seinfeld episode where kramer is hitting balls into the sea, then half a season later a whale is washed up on shore with a golfball stuck in its blowhole

Well just a quick one here,...

The first shot, the gentleman is using his arms too much and "forcing the shot". He is not using his lower body to lead his arms and shoulders thus producing a slice...
The second shot, this guy needs a better follow through, needs to turn his entire body with the shot. He is loosing a lot of yardage by finishing in the reverse C stance, notice how his upper body is leaning back on his right leg? This is a common amature swing that could use about 2-3 hundred more "pinched" buckets and perhaps a lesson or two from his local Pro at the range....
