[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is the 10th tee box at the the Lakes Golf Resort at Pauanui in the Coromandel. The holes are all named after native birds and the 10th is called Kawau (Black shag).
The green is only 110 metres to the right but you don't want to be short!

Looks like a lovely place to swing a club, Jack - although I reckon I'd probably end up throwing my wedge into that lake and destroying the calm, reflective beauty of the place!

Lovely photograph.

very nice capture, nice color nice mood

What a spot for a round of golf! We really don't know how lucky we are.

Beautiful metering and saturation, well composed - a postcard-perfect shot!


Lovely view. Great colours and composition and good DoF. I like the reflections and the clouds in the background.
Cheers, John.

Beautiful Jack (not you, the photo):) classic "rule of thirds' straight out of the text book. Well done, do they have name for the nineteenth?

Hi Jack,

Nice View. Great water reflection... I love the composition and the tone color... TFS


Beautiful composition with nice colour and plenty to look at Jack.
Details could be a little sharper though.
Very nice.

Hi Jack

Great shot, nice colours. Whats the index? looks quite demanding.
Just of to my golf club, bit cold this morning.
Have a great day

What a fantastic colours! The composition and the reverberation make this photograph beautiful.
Greetings from Holland,

I would be skipping the hole altogether Jack and taking ten strokes, water and I on the golf course never got along. Lovely image with good overall colour and an excellent POV. TFS,

Many thanks for your comment on ‘For Mitra and Abtin’

Beautiful shot full of bright colours and nice composition as well. In 1970 i knocked back the chance of buying a block of land there for $6000. :(( Keith

Lovely shot. Must be amazing to play golf on this course. TFS
warm regards
