Joe, I've been shooting golf courses lately and find that the best light is soon after dawn and a couple hours before sunset.  Low, direct, cross or backlight make incredibly wonderful and dramatic images.  The suggestion of a higher viewpoint is good, even a lift if you want to really provide a unique vantage point.  Create a story with your composition, lead the viewer from the foreground to the background.  Jim

Thanks Jim,

This is defiantly something I want to explore more of.  It is a nice break from architecture; very relaxing. 

Heading back out tomorrow morning.

I've just returned from a golf and landscape trip to Scotland.  Here's a shot that combines both, it's the Trump Resort's 3rd hole from the 4th tee.  The course is as hard as it gets, it's much easier to photograph it!  Jim

As my "personal work" is also a vital part of my income and name recognition stream.......

From my recent artist residency at the Petrified Forest National Park in AZ. 4x5 Ilford HP4+, 120 Nikkor SW, B&W Orange filter, souped in Pyrocat HD and drum scanned.

Kirk, What a dramatic scene!  The tonality looks strange to me though, not quite sure what it is, might be a contrast issue.  Please show us more from the residency.

Not quite a finished finished final file for printing yet. The dark greys are being dropped to pure black and some of the grey midtones are flat and lifeless to me as it shows on the web but having said that I like strange. This place is anything but normal (otherworldly more like it) especially when you render it in b&w. This and two other images are going in a museum show here next month-my 101st show.

Nice!  

Makes me want to break out the 4x5 and do some work.  Never was an HP4 fan; too narrow with how I could shoot it.  Do they still make Tri-X?  

Did you print this as well, or is it a scan?  I use to love working with Bergger Warm tone paper; very nice tonalities and grain.  Works well with toners too.

Leaf Credo 40 and Mamiya 210mm f/4.

This old codger of a lens is quite temperamental when it comes to AF, but when it nails it, boy; it does it well.
Absolute steal for 200 odd bucks.

Lovely shot Ashley, but maybe it's just me and OCD ;D, but it really bugs me that the bottom edge of the roof canopy isn't perfectly horizontal, and the pillar isn't perfectly vertical!

Great image Ashley. 

In the women hired talent or someone that works for the hotel?  If the latter, did she just have the wedding dress or did you rent it?
