I'm not too sure about the bokeh on the one of Craig, it's too distracting in my opinion.
Ooo, just thought, have you got a mirror lens? You could use the bokeh on that for an artistic effect if you get the background right. Bob Martin uses mirror lenses to good effect in some of his photos, in the sports portfolio, of Tiger Woods, that's quite pretty.
The second one, of the golfer, in the graphic portfolio is my favourite I think, I love the way you get the classic mirror lens blur off the highlights on the water, and I think the grain just sets the image off.
Yeh, the last one wasn't set up for a quick snap...

send us a link to the tiggy shots, be interesting to see what you mean.

i think it's too long with the 1.4x on up close, and HFT'ers are harder to shoot than FT'ers because they're either in and out really quick or faffing around and moving a lot, with a shallow depth of field and manual focus on a fixed focal it makes up for fast work. Think i got the answer, which is to stick without the 1.4x on tight packed courses.
