-> Round 1 <-
Date: 9th July 2006
Location: Geylang Serai Community Club Time: 10am
Objective: To shoot people, places and things.
Equipment: D100 wif 24 - 70 mm (courtesy of jx)

That's what I did yesterday wif another 2 friends of mine, xinyi and mei zhen.
Reaching the community club slighty after 10am cos we thought the cc was near Eunos mrt. FYI, that one is called Kampong Ubi CC.
Later we found it's exact location: Near Tk sec.

Think we misunderstood.
We were told by Cosgrove to shoot somethign bold and tight composition.
In the end, we were more out of topic.
Here's what I shot:

62mm, F5.6, 1/60s

70mm, F5.6, 1/40s

70mm, F5.6, 1/500s

70mm, F5.6, 1/125s

70mm, F5.6, 1/400s

34mm, F5.6, 1/125s

70mm, F4.5, 1/125s

24mm, F4.5, 1/1000s

The photos above were taken near the President's home...

I submitted the letter box landscape one.
It was a rainny sunday.
We went for lunch at Joo Chiat.
Ate the Fei Fei Won Ton Mee.
Juz as we were about to walk back, it started to rain heavily again.

Took a cab back to the cc.
Sat down and watch the slide show of the entries.
Guess who the judges were???
1. John Cosgove
2. Some founding member of the Nature Photographic Soc!!!!
3. I dunno who.

With one nature photographer as judge, 4 out of the 10 selected prints were flowers.
My friends and i see no link to Geylang Serai wif flowers.
Having landscapes and humans as sleceted ones i dun mind, but flowers???

Trying my luck at Tampines next... ...
