The image quality may drop as a result of lower resolution :(

Hopefully, the judges give more points base on the theme and not on image quality.

Early bird get the worms :bsmilie:

Your are 4 hours late :bsmilie:
haha... not so dramatic as 4hr late... i was at the big walk... 8am then nikon start to give out the goodie bag (to those who queue)... i went there with my camera and got my goodie bag and voucher at about 8:20am... then stick around there to take some photo, so tat i could get some picture with yellow theme involve for the photo competition... at 9:15 plus... i decided to leave as it getting abit too crowded to photograph anybody without interruption..

anyway at 8:20am i'm the 14th clubsnap to collect the voucher... so i guess he is like 1hr late or so

or maybe even better, he went to the wrong collection counter... the counter is at the carnival area instead of the big walk start or end point
