    =(
    No, don't feel bad about others comments. You did well and read the judges mind. Your creativity coupled with your wit made your shots stood out from the rest.

    I look forward to hear from your Japan trip experience. Maybe we can organise a small gathering after your trip.

    Have a fun trip to Japan!

    Judging is not an easy task. Whether fair or not is unimportant. How one melt the judges' hearts is key.

    Likewise its the same here i guess, just do the bare minimum and impress the judges, that's the main aim. If idea is good, it doesnt matter if your shot has bad lighting, noisy background, no rule of thirds idealogy, no pattern/lines/colors (stuff which Mr.JC so painfully preached during the seminar). As long as it's a good idea and the judges love it.

    I believe it's gonna be the same next year, so let's stop complaining and start practising. Go Go Go!!!
    Kind of ironic isn't it. Preaching the rules but not practising it. I guess the organisers did not make their judging criteria clear. Hence so much subjectivity seen.

    I can appreciate a few of the winning shots but some really ???. There are quite a lot of the better ones.

    No offence... but I would hardly classify the entries as salon photography. Salon photography places A LOT of emphasis on set-up photography, composition AND carefully created lighting. I saw a lot of spontaneous photography during the slideshow - hardly salon stuff...

    actually, i didnt even went for the seminar. wanted to go, but forgot about it.

    so instead of running around taking stuff that i know 3/4 of the people will take (like the old man playing chess, the wakeboarding etc), i went a different route - which alot of people commented that i was crazy (my parents included)

    Actually, I took the same thinking as yours, but mine not so creative. I went to youth park and saw so many pp, I quickly chow. No pt. Judges also sian seeing so many replicas.
    Your trolley shot was good.
