    everybody who saw it was talking about it! i believe it is the one picture in the whole exhibition that made quite an impression to a number of people.

    (i believe it's a swallow anyway, not a fly?)
    I think i said bird shot, but initial view from far looks like fly.........

    was exploring the bewildering meanings of (urban) space

    but of course everyone has the right to have their own interpretation, and i'm glad it's actually selected to be exhibited at all

    What I want to tell you is this. Do not be afriad of making mistake but the most important thing is found out what went wrong.

    When I saw my photography in the colourlab, I have a good LOL. If you are interested we can exchange photography.

    the one complaint i just have to make (and i did so in the survey)...is the Music selection! i have nothing against opera, but it just seem so 'out' of context tonight!

    overall, i felt it is a very well organised exhibition...upz for the organisers =)

    we had fun tonight

    cannot agree more on the opera sound lol hell outa hell

    Hi Angel, I saw yr work and they look good on prints. I saw Nicholas, in person too as we passed by each other and said "hi!" only. Didn't get to see his work but guess we all can see it on the CD-ROM the organiser gave every participant at the entrance.

    Guess you're not the only one with the high price tags. So far I've came across some that are priced at $2k. I saw a few digital shots which are over-edited in PS especially Unsharp Masking and the color saturation as well.

    I expect there are more partcipants for this year's exhibition but in fact there are only 450 plus entries, compared to last year's 600plus entries.

    BTW, Stereobox, I didn't know which are yr photographic work as I do not know yr real name.

    I'm glad I'm not the only one noticing the tendency towards screaming colours. Some pictures also showed glaring signs of careless retouching - I remember a photo of wine glasses that stood out in this respect. Refreshingly, I also saw photos with decent craftsmanship being offered for only $20 and $25.

    I think the exhibition is not widely publicized. I don't see it mentioned on the Ngee Ann Kongsi home page, and the "culture" section says Ngee Ann focuses on Chinese/Teochew culture - if I wouldnt' have read about the exhibition on Clubsnap, I would have never known about it. I went on Saturday, and there were only a handful of visitors, including a group of school children who were probably dragged there by a teacher. It was very nice and quiet. But weekend, free entrance, plus a freebie CDROM - and no queue in Singapore?

    Nevertheless, it was one of the most interesting and enjoyable exhibitions I've ever attended. I'm grateful for Ngee Ann's contribution to the community and am looking forward to more exhibitions like this.

    haha my gripe picture was the very grainy butterfly with hues of green and yellow.
    seems like an attempt to upsize a small crop picture and overzealous USM after tat. heh hope the person wont be too angry to hear me say this.

    my fave was by teo bee yen. you can't miss that 4 pics. from far they look like chinese water paintings. Its done on film and prob developed by him. the contrast is amazing..

    portraits wise there's the one of nepalese children. the sharpness and light conditions were quite amazing too...

    I don't think there's any way this could have been unintentional, it's just too extreme. It's probably art that I cannot appreciate.

    Do you mean the pictures from HuanShang? That is an amazingly beautiful place, I hope I can visit it one day. I will have to check which picture you mean... (if only the CD would work without having to install proprietary software).

    There was this one photo of a bird against bright sky that was discussed earlier in this thread. It really stood out in a refreshing way. I also recall two pictures showing details of stacked chairs - very nice. And some amazing pictures of dancers.

    I'm not really into candids of children - they leave me with a bit of a voyeurist aftertaste. Also all the pictures of people in foreign places - do they know they are on display here? Do they agree with pictures of them being up for sale for a lot of money? Sometimes it feels a bit like exploitation, especially as people in the popular "romantic rural scenes in less developed countries" are typically among the less well-off.

    I find this statement very interesting. Especially the "voyeurist aftertaste".

    because the subject is deemed "exotic".

    i visited this tourist attraction in chiangrai before, where various selected members of hill tribes are consolidated and moved to live in the small constructed "village" for tourists to pay money to enter and take photos. i'm not saying its like a zoo or whether it's ethical, just that it's a sort of cultural commodification.
