Layang Layang Photo Comp 2007

Wx-rain in the morning, sunshine afternoon then rain at night. Sea-flat

That's it. These are some of the selections that we have put up for you all to have a look at. Over the week end I am sure you will find some to your liking and some not so. We will post the winning photos later, that way you have an idea why these particular photos got prizes.

Actually the competition this year was quite fun. Some contestants were really quiet and you will not see them except when they dive or are having meals. Some will just show all the photos they took for the competition. And some others joined the competition to improve their photography. At the end of it all, just a bunch of guys that like to dive and have photos to remember the trip by.

Layang Layang 2007 Comp Photo Entries

Wx- Not too bad, a bit overcast but other than that it's fine (can still get sun burned) Sea-0.5m

Now that the competition has ended and the contestants have left for home or to more diving holidays we wish them, congrats to all the winners and bon voyage to all the rest. Until next time.

These are some of the photo entries for the wide angle and macro

We will be trying to post the more of the photo submissions over the next few days. You all can try to spot the winners. Reason why we are doing that is to let you guys make a comparison between a winning photo from the rest. That way you will have a bit of an idea what to do when/if you enter a competition.

It may also give you all some ideas how to compose photos with the camera that you own (provided you don't flood it).

Layang Layang Photo Comp 2007 End

Wz- Still damn hot. A bit of wind blowing up to cool off the land. Sea-0.5 to 1M waves. Vis-not bad

OKOK. Hammerhead school of 8 again. This time some of the photo participants saw them but not within taking photo range.

The competition ended yesterday with the prizes ceremony. This video is to show you the number of participants and also the prizes. A lot of Nautica (8) watches, Nikon camera (2), free trips to Maldives, Layang Layang, Redang for 2 guests and some other stuff.

Notice we added a pretty girl to tend to your flight phobia. And the amount of luggage divers take with them that we have to stuff into every nook and cranny in the aircraft. All the prize winners.

We will post the winning photos as soon as we get our hands on them. Just to tease you, the 1st prize photo was taken at the resort jetty inside the lagoon. Until you see the photo, you'll know what we mean.

Just a couple of picts, courtesy of Ms. Leander Wiseman. These photos are not being submitted for the competition.

Will try to get you more photos from various contestants (that is if they are willing to give us some). If you like their photos, all you have to do is ask and we will link you to the photographers. Bye.
