Thread: NTU Nature Photography Contest

  1. #1

    Default NTU Nature Photography Contest

    Hi,

    I am not sure if this is the correct section to post this but this is a nature photo competition in NTU and these are the top 10 entries.

    http://clubs.ntu.edu.sg/earthlink/eac/index_voting.htm

    I feel that the top 10 photos are disappointing and hope you all can give comments. Thanks.
    [D80][18-135mm f/3.5-5.6G][17-55mm f/2.8G][50mm f/1.8D][85mm f/1.8D][70-300mm f/4.5-5.6G]

    yes, the shots were indeed disappointing...

    I remember I was at NTU attending some photography lessons before, the standard was actually not bad, I am not sure what happened.

    One of my friend is a contestant and I think his photo is better. But cannot post cos of sensitive matters. Really disappointing to see such photos in top 10 or they should at least post all the entries.

    I dunno what happen.. The photography school in NTU have a lot of good professors and lecturers, they are almost all regional and world well-known photographers...they will be very sad to see the images their students have produced . . .
    Love and Peace

    9 ( with the butterfly in flight ) is a tough shot.
    The bird shot composition was so so. if anything it should have been shot with a more telephoto setup
    Some of the colors abit off as well
    Might be because of the web jpg compression or my workplace monitor color abit off

    The big toad and the small leaf on the rock don't look nice at all. Not too sure why in the top 10 list. Probably other photos they receive were very poor as well.

    I guess the photo school students are mainly focused on film not digital.

    Quite shocking that the standard is so low.... maybe the prize is too low to attract ppls to join?

    Think about it, there are always competition between clubs, maybe the photography club did not support this event at all.

    Saw some of the NTU students' works before, some of the standard are pretty high.

    Those 10 photos are really really very bad.
