    I think it's about time that I save my comments on post like these.

    hey guys, lets save this little disharmony among our small photography community.
    Each person has their own perspective and we shall just leave it as it is.

    For me, i think that a contest is to bring people of a common interest together to learn and appericiate each other's works, in this case photography. Of cos, clashes of views are unavoidable, but we should keep it friendly.

    Anyway i really hope this thread could provide a channel for more exp photographer to help out the younger ones.

    Cheers to all and good luck~!

    Don't think we need to see your portfolio. Rather, care to point out any published pieces/advertisements/competitions that you've won to establish the fact that you are, in fact, qualified to criticise others on their photos based on the angle of how they take the photo?

    i think ar this photo competition can be harder than i thought...

    # Abstract - er..infra-red considered abstract?
    # Architecture/Buildings - possibly can, singapore has full of them
    # Children at play - er.. i scared later the parents hantam me
    # People at work - hmm... dont think can..
    # Portrait(s) - impossible for me!
    # Nature - how do they define nature? if macro/park then i tink i can...
    # Still Life - possible for me
    # Night Scene - confirm possible.

    limited variety for me huh

    i dun think infra red considered as abstract. Nature - i think macro of plant or park can go to this category.

    Sure is difficult to classify pictures... Especially if they can fall into two or more categories...

    Things like portraits is definitely out of the question for me at the moment. Nature is a personal interest, so it's simpler. In the past I used to do some night photography as well, so there's some passable night shots on computer. But I'm trying to figure out how to do an interesting night shot.

    If I simply submitted an architecture-type night shot, or headlamp trails, it'd probably be terribly cliche.

    Heheh...no lar. If noisy photos are your intention, it could work successfully. But just try lowest ISO setting on your camera, set it up on a tripod or on a stable surface with beanbag (or any other thing...door stop also can help to elevate camera slightly if necessary), put to sel-timer and go to manual mode for long exposures, you'll get very charming, clean images.

    I am a rookie..
    I took a impromptu, unplanned shot. I did win something.
    hmmmm last year my friend just anyhow took 2 shots with her digital cam and sent it for some competition, and won... *sweat*
    Bad side is suddenly she thinks she's a great photographer.
    Point is, if someone is being lucky, a unplanned shot can give you a very good result.

    I think you're simply being arrogant.

    I've seen others simply snap at something VERY uninteresting (for example, a door handle?) to me and churn out wonderfuly intriguing photographs. Just because your skill level is not there, doesn't mean other people's aren't. I doubt you are producing stunning photos that make others rave about your church.
