    Totally agreed with you. I stayed. cause i enjoy it. but yes, the extensions were irritating. Last time they didn't wait for the rest, they would say 10 mins more. once 10 mins is up, they announced it. I understand they want everyone to have a chance. but its unfair to those he stick to the timing.

    YoYO...

    Hook me up with NIKON Singapore...

    It will be called Nikon "Meet & Talk" Photo Competition 2009

    They will definetly make a better competition:
    1) Nikon Category and Non-Nikon Category
    2) Launch 3 themes, choose 2 themes to shoot and submit
    3) 4 hours shooting time, wait for the next 4 hours for the results
    4) Prize presentation ceremony at 6pm. End of Competition
    5) No participate should be in the submitting photos ( this is not a solo photo shoot)

    ?


    what's with the discrimination?
    A photography competition should be based on photography skill, not equipment!

    This way when someone submit the same location shot, we can compare which is a better lens and system.

    Like previously, a lot photographers wanted the Canon Photo marathon to be for Canon Camera Users only.

    i guess some people shouldn't ever go join any competition cos they can't take failure... and they only love to hear nice things...

    i think i should start a company to provide ego soothing services for those who have bruised egos from critiques and competitions.
    ha ha ha, like that u will be million air next year this time liao.
    photography makes one sees things from all angles.

    I suggest you call it as "Nikon Photo - Triathlon competition".
    because there are 3 themes to be consider.

    I've been reading alot of the entries frm others. I think its kinda sad that pple are so negative towards the people who "Stage" their shots. Like the picture with the Mother holding her old picture, i find nothing wrong with that. I actually thought it was a great picture that made me smile.

    I think we shouldn't be so negative towards the whole staged thing. Like someone mentioned earlier, there weren't any rules stating that staged pictures were allowed and it is yr own perception that you'd think that we should only stick to taking outdoor natural pictures.

    I mean how many of the so called staged pictures on the board have you seen and said "I thought of that. I also can do!" At the end of it, we are all photographers coming together because we like one thing.. taking pictures, whether it be studio like shots, posed shots or outdoor shots. Everyone has their own comfort zone.

    Yes, i may have taken what seemed/deemed like a "staged" shot for "Change" and got my displayed, but hey...try getting a a less than 2yr old little girl, to hug her mothers stomach the way she did.. haha! by the way i didn't tell her to hug her mother's stomach that way. It took me 2 hrs to get that 1 shot. and i let her do whatever she wanted.

    But don't get me wrong, i'm not writing this cos "oh i took a "Posed" photo so i'm standing up for myself n the pple who did". i noe this might stir and annoy some pple. I just think that we shouldn't be talking so much smack abt it. Cause trust me... my other two categories, are TOTALLY not posed pictures.

    N besides, it wasn't a totally biased selection of pictures, there were quite a few non staged pics too...

    to me, be is it so call "stage" or "Poses" or not. Be it fashion or Photojournalism etc, the point is can anyone click at the "right" time to get that moment?

    Then Sg have ton of Richard Avedon and Copa liao lor, right?

    Just share abit of what i have shot last sunday. Firewalking.

    Are these "Stage" or not? Or poses?







    It just some samples for those "Pro" or "Curator" to give some advice as i am still learning how to shoot.

    Will bye bye this thread. Anyone want to discuss or chat with me about this can PM me.

    Enjoy shooting

    3) No Indoor Studio shoot. To be fair as not everyone can own and setup a studio.
    4) Keep to the timing, once late to submit. Disqualified!
    5) Do not take another printed document or poster as your subject

    Dear Organisers are you looking at these?
    You have very interesting input. Personally, I would prefer to see less staged shots in this contest. But how would you expect the organizer to enforces some of your suggested rules?

    How can you tell a photo is staged or candid? The contestants and the judge will debate till the cows come home. We will end up lucky if we managed to finish even one theme at that rate, let alone the few themes you suggested.

    Can anyone or the organiser please tell us who the judges were?

    So secretive? For what, touting or corruption?

    I understand that you might not be happy about the judges' decisions, but the event is over, so there's no point to keep harping on about it yes?
