Composition-Content
Really great idea and composition, the person seems to be "hiding" in a good place as far as rule of thirds, but perhaps it is a little obvious, maybe if he could have been hidden a bit more...

Technical
Great focus, overall good quality. i think that the lighting is a little harsh, the details of the golf balls have been lost, perhaps toning it down a bit would have been good. However the overall lighting is even. The main thing about this shot, is the border, just too bright! I know that you had lots of comments about it, I don't think you lose points over it, but a simple black border, with perhaps a tiny yellow one inside would have been good.

My Opinion
I think that your composition and idea are great, it is eye-catching and original. Personally, I am not a golf fan, so it doesn't really appeal to me but it is colourful and meets the challenge well. Good Luck in the next challenge.

This is VERY well done. Great focus and composition. The border might be a bit much though.

COnsidering this was done in software, Waldo should have been better camoflauged.

Get rid of that YELLOW border! Cute one. Nice sharp clean focus. Bright for sure. From the title I rather expected to see a "nut". Good one.

Good idea, don't care for the wide bright framing, however.

good idea, how did you manage to put the person on top of the golf balls?

+ Great concept & composition
- the highlights wash out the detail of the golf balls, the border has to go, focus is soft overall
Could have been an 8 or 9, but with the flaws 6

Golf nut! Very colorful image. Glare is a tad bright on the whiter balls, but overall this is a well done shot. (Gotten any complaints about your yellow border?) Good focus, framing works. Challenge well met. 8 Swash

Great idea. Nice cut-out. The yellow balls are too bright, and the border doesn't help, IMO.

Nice color, but kind of easy, and I think the yellow frame takes away from the golf balls.

I like the idea a lot but I do find the yellow/green just too bright while the face is too dark.The details on the red balls are lost.

it's not affecting your score, but the border here is too loud.. it is grabbing my attention away from your photo... - setzler
