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.
it was today dat i felt e MOSTT dejected in my shooting life..screwed up crowds..unresonable ppl..ppl pushing me here n there..n my freakin slow lens..ahh!
any fellow photographer wants to write in a letter to the management to lodge a compaint? i'm pretty sure many of us here would sign it
eat. drink. shoot
sooo nice.. i want e pics.. boohoo..
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.
anyone shot the transformers and gundam? looks dam cool man . i think i saw megatron also.
photography makes one sees things from all angles.
Went there early and got a good spot but ruined by many IDIOTS!!!
cuz iwas wearing QUITE formal, so i managed to blend in with the official photographers, haha. my shots were decent.
still the crowd control was horrigible.
arghhh. tmr gonna be worse and more crowded la.
Sian.... tomorrow sleep at home beta!
