okay,
i won the third theme open category
first prize
:)

special thanks to
arifin for lending me his ultra wide lens, 10mm
vivi for firing the shutter
( i set the settings, was my idea, i shot the composition of how i wanted it to be and showed it to her, she was just mainly firing it, thus, i believe it's still my work, else, i could haf done it with a tripod also wad )

and arifin and st for jumping with me =D




ps. the ipod nano is for sale
the apple shop is selling for $348
it's the 8gb blue one
price is negotiable :)

but i somehow feel terribly disturbed inside
having won an open category, first prize, out of so many people
why am i not happy ?
