Getting low to get this shot was tricky. The tee box is elevated so I was able to get below the ball a little.

Under exposed the ambient light to get the sky to go dark, lit with an EX580 w/soft box by remote trigger

Good shot, I like the persepctive for this subject and the lighting. The only thing that bothered me a little was the isolted tree growing between his legs. I may have shifted angles to avoid that.

Interesting take on the challenge and on the wide-angle effect.

great angle, but a still club and that body language don't work together...that being said I would watch the front foot, a bit too open, you will probably slice...(weak grip)....
really I get it, fun shot, nice angle..

Lovely take on the challenge :) I've been thinking about shooting some golf for a while and when I do this is one of my 'wishlist' shots. A couple of points I think may improve the shot would be to have had an empty background (no trees buildings etc) and to me his stance doesn't look too hot for a golfer? nice shot and good luck ;) (7)

Beyond this challenge, this would be a great stock image, uncluttered, clean and punchy, though you would have to clone out the golf ball brand. Nice one.

great perspective! i think this is an excellent interpretation of the challenge. and you were very brave to let your camera get that close, because he looks like he could do some damage. :)
