    just last month, I was putting on my cirpol, on my lens and my friend's friend was saying.. "wah.. put on wide angle lens liao, see only know what you wanna shoot liao"

    Then over time I also collected some quotable quotes:
    "My 4 megapixels camera not enough to print 4R, think i need to buy a 8megapixel one just nice"
    "If only I had a DSLR I'm sure the pictures will be a lot nicer than mine"
    "Wah your camera so big, how many pixels ah? must be at least 10megapixels"
    "Your pics not bad leh, what camera you use?"
    "My camera is 8 megapixel, very powerful one, can zoom very far, not like my 4 megapixel"
    "Your camera and lens so big why cannot zoom, dun bluff lah
    "My flash not powerful enough, all the buildings behind still very dark, need those big cams with flash then can"
    "Your cam only 6 megapixels, where got enough, now my hp already 5megapixels"

    may just be humble then.. sometimes what other says may not 100% true, but got some points also..so we can just be humble and try to learn and look within..

    i guess we all may have this kind of sarcastic mind on other photographer.. like he thought holding a DSLR then is a pro, like why he bounce flash to the sky, why use ladder..blah blah..

    Bounce flash to the sky very common.

    But den it also depends whether the chap has a bounce card or not.

    If got bounce card, still have excuse. If no bounce card, no more excuse liaoz.

    i find it is ok lar.

    there was 1 night when i sat down on the floor (walk path between 2 hdbs), set up tripod + big gun + angle finder and of cause my camera.

    sure, my neigbhours and strangers walk pass and asked me what i was doing, i simply invited them to look through the angle finder. next thing i know is some foreign workers staying at the 2nd floor came down and ask if they can see. we ended up having a nice chit chat session at the round table in the void deck.

    just share what you know if the stranger have a interest to know what is is that you are shooting. it is one way polish communication skills too.
    photography makes one sees things from all angles.

    I guess that makes us more aware of our comments regarding how the other photographers take their photos.

    However I haven't come across a guy that says, " Haiyaa... no good one. Angle too low lah. Must use ladder one."

    Because those who don't carry ladders know how to climb trees one.

    LOL ... Does it matter? I met a taxi driver who acted as though he knew about microelectronics just because his son happened to be an electronic student at my school. 80% of his yak-yaking was wrong, but I kept the amusement to myself. Anyway he was a nice fella.

    Try to be more tolerant lor. Sometimes people are just trying to get closer to you.
