Countdown-4th place

4th place-'Cave'

Nikon D700, 17-35mm f2.8

Patrick's comment-Ashwini looks stunning in this shot, pose, background, lighting are carefully expose. 'Light Painting' is one of the technique that I learn 15 years ago in commercial field, I will focus more on this to make it to become one of my signature, so far I'm the only one who still apply this technique to wedding photography.

Congrats to Ashwini!

Countdown 2010-5th place

5th place-'Date With Carcosa'

D80-Infra Red, 10.5mm f2.8.

Patrick's comment-Carcosa Seri Negara is one of my favourite location, unfortunately this beautiful place has to close for renovation for a year or two. This is an off moment shot, where Vanessa is walking towards the right spot to get ready for the 'next shoot', sometimes 'off moment' will look better than ready :)

Congrats to Vanessa!

AMPA Qualification

These are my 20 prints for AMPA qualification.
What I like about MPA qualification is the comments from the judges, these are the things that money can't buy, we are so use to clients give good comments, but we should listen to others professional comments too.

One of my favourite photo.

Anonymous? Comments?

'Anonymous' been sending a few comments in my blog since the day I post a note on my facebook months back.

At first, I'm thinking of just delete & ignore it, after carefully reading those comments, I notice that all messages are like putting 'fire' between relationship with jealous, hates & desperate.I will like to share this with all my friends, it's about a photographer's blog (myself), 'what if someone don't like 'you or ???' I think this happen to lots of photographers out there too.

Here are the comments from Anonymous.
No edit, cut & paste from his comments-

19/7/09-Impressive as it may seems BUT it's so obvious Edmund Tham the award winner is so much better and more impressive, so much stronger in content and so much more original! Your elements and concepts are weak and everything is just too hard-sell.

Sorry, I can't recall which photo that he refering to, below is his comment.
23/7/09-think i've seen this shot before. is it that you've no new shots? edmund tham has beat you long ago.

29/7/09-Wow. Amazing shots you got there. Your client must be very please. Correct me if I'm wrong, I thought light painting was Edmund Tham's signature shot?

28/8/09-Jon Low has the same title "Dances in the rain". Did you copy him?

Sensative issue, right? But it's good to share with my friends who understand me who am I, I don't think I need to explain for all this. I'm the kind of person who focus on my journey, a little bit of pain & fails will not affect my dream, my goal & my passion.

Lastly, I hope this 'friend' will give me a call soon, cause I really want him to be happy, with wide open heart & together we can help the industry to grow better, I will try my best.
