    imagine this. the supervisor in charge of crowd control can walk past me, smile at me and say happy shooting, and after she walks past, this auntie comes up, and says rudely, "move back".

    c'mon, even her supervisor did not ask me to move back, why does she have to do so? and it's not as though there was a big float coming down the road. the road was empty for at least 60cm in front of the crowd line.

    eventually even a few mediacorp photographers were pissed and left the area early
    Hahaha...I actually rested the back of my left palm on the shoulder of the Cisco Aux Police when he stood in front of me and refuse to move!!!! Errr.... Fire a few shots before he gets the idea and walk away!

    Total mismanagement of the entire event!

    Those Cisco police, official photographers, those staff who are suppose to do crowd control and many of those who have tickets! Feel like chopping all their heads off! Waste my time and get ZERO good shots!!!!

    Me and friends got tickets for "half lane" areas, that is sit by the roadside. Then we find out they are admitting ppl free cos there's not enough people by the roadside.

    I only took a few nice shots, lots of people blocking our views, walking about, photographers, helpers, security guards. There's this guard whose positerior was literally in almost all of my shots in that direction.. sigh...

    Chingay? Don't think I'll be going again anytime soon.

    Had to shoot above ppls' heads using Live View.

    It's times like this I wish there's a fast super zoom so I easily alternate between wide angle to capture the atmosphere and long telephoto to capture each individual parade dancers' expressions. Too afraid to change lenses in the crowd -someone squeezing in and out might just knock my prized lens off my hand and onto the floor- so had to use the standard zoom for the whole event.

They just stand right in front in a group, like waiting for free kicks in a soccer match!!!
    your guess is as good as mine ... suddenly so many green pass people floating around... the media also had a quarrel with the cisco officers

    Free tickets - go la... for freakin' $45 and this kind of management ... i don't think its worth it. Personally, i find its worse than last year's...
