    same thing here, flowerpot. But then again, I don't think you've gotten bad.. last few flower macro shots were pretty excellent in my eyes..

    Maybe, just adopt your travel photography where you end up using only 1 lens (10-20) almost all the time!

    If money/time/work permits, and instead of investing on any new lens, why not just go travel? New / fresher subjects does help...

    Hey flowerpot...there's such a thing as "good" and "bad" days.
    The camera's algorithm and optical parts do not change for no reason, so I guess you were simply at places where the conditions are very challenging.

    Take a break, have a "Pao" , drink some tea....then get back to snapping!

    Sounds just like me.

    It's like everything I take sucks.

    I even went out to buy a new lens, and guess what... It still suck, but the images are sharper.

    Don't give up. Everybody goes through it at some point.

    take a break

    i always do that. something like 1 month, no photography (at least not recreational, for me, all photography is recreational but not everyone has that luxury)..

    then come back to it again. in the meantime, you can still look at pictures, clear your mind.

    i actually enjoy watching others shoot.

    Flowerpot, don't worry, relax and enjoy photography.

    I also get depressed when I look at other peoples photos - they are sharp, well composed, proper exposure. I look at them as an inspiration and a possibility.

    Don't set too high a standard for yourself. Give yourself a break. How do you know that those photographers did not go thru the same way you do? When you feel down, do something else, give yourself a camera holiday. Forget about photography and ClubSnap. Then when you start to miss photography, then start again. You will feel recharged!!

    Just shoot and enjoy photography. Happy New Year!

    now i think, compose, think, compose, research on the net... think again...read books... study people photos... my shots are bad...

    either im lousy or i need to rediscover myself... my equipment remain the same, i check all the lens, camera, all ok... problem is me even my editing sucks now...

    seems like my pics are either soft(not that im particular but seems like it lack something), composition no good, and noisy pics, exposure also off...

    my wife try to console me, says becos the weather no good, so bad light, the model i shoot not pretty so not nice... but i think i suck...

    I'll MIA for months before I let myself gets to this stage. If you wanna do some macros maybe can come to a kopi session with me. Maybe can find new inspirations for the both of us^^

    Edit: Could you had taken a shot that had so much impact on you, that the rest just don't seems to work anymore?

    Ya busy with wedding stuffs. Also taking a break from photography and looking at bridal work, now filled with motivations to try out pre-wedding photography. Going SZ next month for my pre-wedding, signed with these 2 BS;
    http://www.vinsy.com/
    http://www.szmcyx.com/ (managed to get their award winning photographer to take for us)

    So the SZ trip will be a learning trip for me as well. Hope to bring back something^^ Mainly how to communicate with human subjects (I only know how to talk animals lol) and how to direct to get some nice pose and angles. Maybe can do some sharing when I get back lol

    Best you all put on a Sat morning/afternoon or weekdays lunch lor. We can do a short session in small group.

    XMM shots could it be the models? Or maybe you are too confused over different type of photography in ur mind. Oh ya ur recent work pretty gloomy, try something colorful.^^ Or maybe u forgot ur workflow editing those XMM shots?
