I hope I score well....

I painted one of my boyfriend's golfballs for this and as you know......
You shouldn't paint a man's balls without a very good reason.

Just for the record.....

Golf is a major obsession in Japan due to the small land mass and the amount of people who want to play.

The Japanese flag is white with a large red circle in the middle symbolizing the "land of the rising sun"

check this out of you don't believe me

And....

The ball is "ROUND" and as such meets the challenge.

Thank you!

This is a really neat photo for sure... The similarity to the Japanese flag and the tie in with the obsession with golf there is a really unique and appealing thought for this photograph. The only area for improvement I can see in this photo would be an attempt to even out the lighting on the background and get it as close to white as possible for even more impact. Great shot...

Very nicley thought out. Good title. the shadow beneth the ball is a little distracting. If that wasn't there it would be much more subtle.

Put a smile on my face... very creative! The lighting is just a little harsh for my taste... I think this could have been more effective without the shadow. 8
