2 firsts - my first golf shots and my first posts. I'm a rookie photog, so C&C are appreciated.

1. Tiger in the bunker

2. Tiger in the fairway

If I go by the preview, this post won't work :oops: can someone help me?

thanks,

alex

thanks Jim. I'm a newbie at sports photography, but I try to improve every week - unfortunately, I don't have a fast enough lens to photograph indoors.

I was always told by members of the PGA (not the PGA Tour), that golf was a game....

But, that's splitting hairs and figured I'd mention that to furrow some brows :)

Falls into the PC vs Mac, Beta vs VHS, Film vs Digital arguments...<snicker>

I like both shots very much.....looks like you did well with the exposure on #1 with the sun being where it was....

Sweet...

Very impressive shots. The 2nd looks like it's straight out of a magazine. It shows him off nicely.

Didn't think Tiger ever found the bunkers ;-)

Nice shots!

Thank you all for your comments and encouragement. I really appreciate the feedback.

BTW, this was a practice round before the tournament; officials did not allow non-event cameras during actual play - since this was practice, Tiger's caddy decided to throw a couple of balls in the bunker just for the fun of it.

Nice shots!

He usually finds the bunker after some inconsiderate photographer takes a photo in the middle of his backswing:lol:

Oh... that's a good one! Middle of back swing... your killing me!

Nice first tries there mate. I take it these were shot during practice, right? Good stuff.

Got more?

Thanks again all... Here's my attempt at b&w - the house in the background was way too distracting in color :confused:
