I was at the driving range the other day and decided to capture this.
You have 230 post, unless they are all in the off-topic section then you should know how to put a picture in a post.
Here's your C&C:
1. Nothing too special. It's very distracting with everything that's going on in this picture. You cut the sky/green in half, that's a composition no-no. The sharpness and clarity are there. May I ask what the blue is that's on the ground?
Sorry about that.
Anyways. What did you mean by cut the sky in half?
It's the driving range. The blue is suppose to be a pond.
The colour is nice but thats about it really
Are you kidding me? Is this kind of comment necessary?
"Here's your C&C"??? I'm sure he's eternally grateful for this serving of professional opinion. And a compositional no-no? You speak about composition as if it's math which makes me sick. There are no compositional no-no's as it's up to the shooter to decide how they want to present their image. If he wants to split the frame in half, so be it, but it's certainly not up to you to tell him he's wrong for doing so. How about we just add a rule to the forum that for an image to be displayed, it has to follow the rule of thirds? Seriously guy, you need to realize that photography is about expression, not rules and when you provide a critique, make sure the person your critiquing realizes that it's the way "you" feel and is not the way it has to be.
Personally, I liked the picture with ONE exception. Too much green. Crop the bottom a bit. It tends to take away from the rest of the photo, and will focus attention all over at the colors, instead of "Hey look! Golfballs!"
