    It's not fair! I don't see any newbies option there.

    Newbies != Beginners

    Newbies are somone who just pick up photography, bought a new camera, and shoot a few photos. (For eg, togu)

    Beginners are someone who already knows a bit about photography but not too much, and keep trying the different configs to achieve better results. (For eg, togu in another few months).

    It's very difficult to gauge the level of each individual. Very subjective and er.. very sensitive to some at times.

    1. If you'll to ask the mods to categorised each individual, the mods will suffocate in no time.

    2. Members voting - Very subjective too. Everyone will probably push me way high, for being a lovely fat cat.

    3. Based on equipments - That conflicts with the "The photographer makes the picture" golden rule.

    4. Based on number of pictures posted - We might end up getting lots of funny postings.

    PS. Point 3 and 4 will attract Mr KNV immediately.

    Just my...er...2 cents.

    How about guaging by the number of photos taken? The more pictures you've taken, the more experienced you are?

    as for pros, why not just catagorize pros as those who make a living out of photography? isn't that the usual definition of a pro?

    I think there is a big gap here between Amateur and Professional photographer.

    What about those who are strictly neither amateur nor professional?

    Serious Amateur it is!
