Probably because of the fact that it's a range ball....a titlist would have rolled in! Nice one Kent!

Bahaha good catch - stop using the trash balls, Kent!

Nice shot, I dig the texture of the grass and dirt.

The only (nitpicky) thing that is throwing me off is how the bottom of the hole is cropped. My eyes would be happier with a semicircle.

I guess that does take away some of the depth, though. Just a thought!

Thanks guys ... glad you like it.

But it's a "SuperRange" ball ... so that means it goes father, right?

I found about a 1/2 dozen range balls in a creek bed some time back (nowhere near a course ) and just keep them in my truck for no particular reason, except to use them as an pseudo 3D WB tool on occasion. I thought the "SuperRange" might make for some irony at coming up short by such a small little amount.

I shot this one around dusk (EV4-ish) mostly as a draft/concept shot. It was kinda tough to see to compose/focus so I may re-shoot this one with a clean ball in some decent light (less noise). I was hoping to get the bottom of the cup in the frame, but couldn't quite get things the way I wanted them in the dark. Although, the cup shape kinda reminds me of a "frown" (kinda fitting) as is.

We'll see if I get back out there or not. I don't want to be a nuisance to anyone, so it's a bit hit & miss at when to go without being a bother.

Your knowledge of light is well beyond mine, but I think if you had more back light it would really give a great shadow over the hole, in addition to lowering your overall noise.

Hmmm, never thought about backlighting it. That could add a bit more drama than my uber-soft dusk light. I mostly went when there would be almost nobody around without too much consideration of the light for the "test" shot.

Although that would probably be at a time of day when the course is a bit busier, I might take a "swing" at it sometime.

Would like to see what you can make of it!

I think a really close wide shot would be pretty epic - a giant ball with an exaggerated perspective on the precipice of falling in.

Well ... this one is already at MFD with 24mm TS-E II for tilt/shift. I could try it with the 17 or 18, but they aren't tilt/shift. Hmmm, at my Oly 18/3.5.

Part of the issue is that the camera doesn't exactly fit in the cup, so I figure shift/tilt is about as low as I can go.

Yeah I was gonna let you figure out the whole logistics thing, ha.

I wonder if the course would mind you digging up their greens?

Nice one!
I like the plane of focus- great choice of DOF, puts me right at the edge, staring at all the strands of grass!

Thanks.

Yeah, those grass roots are pretty close to the ground.
