  • Any Canon Photo5 competitors out there?

    Hello.

    Ive entered this years Canon Photo5 Competition and Im wondering if any other coffeesnobs have done so too. There seems to be a bit of a trend whereby coffee and photography go together.

    For those unfamiliar with this comp, Canon post you a box of 5 objects when you register (everyone gets the same 5 objects) and then you take photos of the objects and enter them into the competition (you can enter one photo per object and you can only have one object in each photo). This years comp has now closed.

    So any photo5-ers out there?

    Cheers
    -Sanch

              Nice ribbon shot.
              Also agree on the tea light.

                Thanks for the comments guys!

                Yeah i dont envy the judges, there are about 1500 photos in each of the 5 categories and quite a few really good ones. Theyve got a big job ahead of them!

                I think the ribbon and tea light are my best hopes of getting into the finals. Now ive just gotta wait, and stop chewing my finger nails!

                Cheers

                  Gee Sanch - perhaps a career as a medical photographer?

                  Wonderful pics!

                    Brilliant Sanch and you describe yourself as a beginner. The lighting on most of the shots I saw was perfect. Great composition.

                    Your contribution is easily one of the best in the ribbon section

                      Master of photography........

                      No way a beginner, dude, what are you doing drinking coffee?
                      You should be onto your third bottle of Bollinger by now. If those photos dont bring you the big prize, I dont know what will - you are very talented with the camera and you get my vote.
                      Subject matter is brilliant and composition is number 1 - I agree entirely with "flynnaus".
                      Well done.
                      If you dont wanna drink the 1996 Grand Anne Bollinger, try the Moet et Chandon brand, but its not as nice. Ill begin drinking for you....... hope you win.

                        Gob smacked at the ribbon picture Sanch, a very creative idea and so well shot. Love it!

                        Good luck.

                          Hi Sanch,
                          Just had a good look through all the photos on the flckr site - WOW and WOW. Theyre awesome. Its a great talent you have.... something you could definitely run with - i reckon. Unreal.

                            Hey thanks for the lovely comments!

                            The finalists were announced today on the canon photo5 website. My crayon photo made it into the finals for the amateur section which im very pleased with!!! I thought the red wine ribbon one was my best chance at making it into the finals but there you go.

                            Theres a week of voting (it ends 11.59pm AEDST on 10th November) and then the winner of each section (the photo which gets the most votes) is announced.

                            If anyone feels eager enough to sign up and vote feel free to...

                            Cheers,

                            -Sanchia

                              Is there a link that can get us to your crayon contribution?
