Experience at marathon
There were three assignments with one theme each. They were feelings, colours of life and lastly, city of lights. For each theme, we were given 3 hours.They were certainly challenging. However, the weather was kind to us. No rain. One bonus was for each participating member one was given a photograhper's jacket with 'Canon' embroiled at the back. Talking about getting back advertising dollars.
The top prize went to a young female photographer. Her winning shot was of a moving escalator with passengers. I believe it was on a tripod. The judges were Ken Cheong and John Cosgrove and Grace Chng.

That young lady happens to be Coolcat. Very colourful escalator and very special-angle shot for the city lights.
CONGRATS to Coolcat.

congrats coolcat. I was sitting in the front row and cheering you on as you received both the assignment and grand prizes.
Although I didn't win anything, it was great fun especially the viewing of all the photographers' pictures during the slideshow.

Well done SFHuang, your pictures were well researched and a joy to view,
like many of the participants you thought your assignment through well and
took great pictures, sadly there can only be one winner.
I hope you and all the Canon/CompTimes photo marathoners keep up their
high standards of work and we look forward to another event in the future.
johnc - one of the six judges.
