    Mocha, please ask the organizer about this... Thank you so much

    Agila, your wish has been granted!

    Mocha,

    Mucho gracias for the update
    Many thanks to Issey for the opportunity to shoot as well. Invaluable experience.
    Hoping for more opportunities in future.

    Had a minor ego boost seeing my work on display.... (but quickly deflated after seeing quality of other works... ) Great work from all the entrants.

    About the finalists' entries on display, haw mani are from pro and haw mani are from amatuers?

    I think those with pro studio equipments may have upper hands on this one as some of the difficult effect such as "frozen stream of water" is difficult to achieve with a 60-watt daylight household bulb.

    And also considering the skill level, would it be fair to lump pro and amateurs together instead of having 2 separate divisions?

    I think with the experience of organising this contest, Luxasia will do a better job next time round if there is a next time.

    I have a commercial interest in still life photography. The final entries show me how far I have to go to produce arresting still life shots.

    Thank you all!

    I think the old view that pros have more equipment than hobbists is dead. A few CS with full studios are not pro in that sense of the word ie deriving the bulk of their income from photography wink rather it could be the reverse photography is the biggest expense they have. Anyways as you well know a lot can be done with a little - your own works have proven that.

    I have to agree with you to a certain point.

    Although I've produced 7,000 commercial still life cliches in the past 4 and half years, everytime I desire a certain classy lighting effect, I come up against severe limitations with my 60-watt household bulbs.

    I've learned how to live with them by simplistic solutions. Anyway two or three of the excellent standard of the finalist shots you've seen won't be enough for me. I need more than 10,000 of average shots that could be mass produced cheaply and in 15 minutes. Otherwise there won't be vegetables, pork and hot soup on my dinner table.
