    You are right, photography is subjective.

    When you shoot for competition, you shoot for the judge liking.
    When you shoot for client, you shoot for the client liking.
    When you shoot for yourself, you shoot what you like. However, what you like may not be what the judge or client like.

    So in a way, during photo competition, the judge is ALMIGHTY at the point in time.

    Im sure the judges won't have that "im almighty, and my judgement is always right" mentality. Sometimes they can learn, why certain decisions arouse certain responses from the majority, what went wrong and right. I believe it's been difficult for the 3 judges, and mentioned by the canon guy, they were debating on what's good and not.

    Likewise from the participant's point of view, we too can learn, what makes photos work and what are those which do not. From the slide presentation, im sure everybody who stayed to watch learnt invaluable lessons, like don't go and shoot what the other 1000 & 1 photographers are shooting, like Mr JC says in the seminar, all the similar shots simply cancel each other out, they become a bore to the general audience. Rather than having the "i can shoot better than anybody else with the same angle" , even if you can make your own shot real good, the others with the same shot will make your shot seem mediocre.
    Why not try something different and stand out? Burn a trail, don't be a pretender.

    Nobody's really right or wrong here. I think everybody can question the decisions of the judges (how they base their judgement and criterias). Or a judge could even ask any participant on why he/she would compose a particular shot in that way. It's all fair evaluation, that's how people learn to improve.

    Let's not let this thread degenerate into mud slinging, it would be a pity if this got locked.

Maybe because I'm a woman so I'm seeing it from a female perspective and not a photographer's POV. But I just felt sorry for that woman in that photo, having her photo taken when she was in a vulnerable position and displayed so openly.
    Incidentally, it was that young (very pretty) lady who took that shot...

    Is Canon going to put up the short-listed shots? I had to rush off after submitting the last assignment. Didn't get a chance to see the printed short-list shots on the 3rd floor that day.

    Hello verityshu, Actually most of us ("us" refers to my shooting gang) finds this photo most interesting and really potrays the theme "Challenge" well. I didnt look close enough but I cant find anything "zhao keng" or whatever leh. Everyone sees things differently so there is no right or wrong. Most important is we are all winners if we can make it to the Guniess Book of world records and we all had fun. Hope I dont offend anyone.


    When I shot at Vivo, we encountered 2 very happy fathers whom we will sending their children's photos to via email. I was disapointed that when I was shooting, a young chap just cuts in-between me and my model and start snapping. When we are taking part in a competitio, we are representing the whole photography community so we do have to be responsible and show proper maners and altitudes.

    Hence that's why I said it's just me who finds that photo tasteless. I didn't say it was wrong, I'm just saying I myself dislike it. I don't want to get into a debate either over what's right and wrong over photography because there will never be any answers as everyone sees things differently!

    However! Littering is WRONG (refering to my earlier grouse about people littering the briefing room)

    I think so... Hehe, I think most of us were too excited to get started, then got tunnel-visioned with the assignments.

    I didn't feel bad about any of the shots I failed to submit that were better than the ones I've actually submitted, but it's amazing that the shots that I took that I didn't consider to be "entries" came out better and more appropriate than those I "tried" to shoot for the theme.

    I wanted to submit this for "Challenge" hehe...



    ... and this for "Passion"



    ----

    The ones I've actually submitted were pretty lame haha.
