Yellow theme ii - Teed off

Posted by
dobbino (Cape Town, South Africa) on 4 November 2009 in Business & Industry.

I found that I had two photos with a fairly dominant yellow section, and then decided on the " Yellow theme". All I needed now was the final image in the series and set off looking for something worthwhile to photograph. It actually turned out to be quite a challenge! I finally decided on this image (my favourite of the series to be posted on Friday). It was taken outside a nearby golf driving range, and I thought it was suitable for some selective colouring.

@Nicholas: Thanks Nicholas - red and blue were the other two. Hmm - that rhymes quite nicely!

Great use of selective colour Rob. Surreal shot. You have to ponder on the size of the clubs and balls, let alone the golfer, to go with them.
Re your comment Chairman Grouser has a nice ring to it. I will give it some thought, possibly to be published in a little black book :)

That is very well done and very clever to spot that image inside a colour version.
