    That's very well done for a first time.

    Nice to see some golf shots here! Nice work to bad it's hard to click the shutter when they are hitting the ball.

    Love the comp and balance of the first shot. All very nicely done.
    Don't forget about the Gallery. Are your photos there??

    Nice shots, particularly getting the ball in shots 1,3,4.


    Do they still have the rule that photographers can only shoot after the ball is struck?

    While one Pro camera's shutter from the distance you'd shoot with a 400mm lens is quiet, when there's a whole pack of photographers I would imagine the noise would be potentially a distraction.

    Could you get around that restriction by shooting HD video and then extracting frames?
    Would that be allowed?
    Or would that then put you into needing a video accreditation (for WEC racing that's an extra 2000 if you accredited as photographer not TV).
