Loh, how close can you get to the court for photos? Are they very strict about your seating position? There seems a good number of people in the audience.
How about your camera settings? Were you on ISO1600? There's a lot of noise in the photos.

I think I can only see him when his players are playing. Most of it is not major tournaments.

Even with a tripod, some of my pics came out blur. None of them was as sharp. And my DSLR is actually quite noisy, maybe it needs servicing.
I haven't tried using the manual mode as I am not competent enough. So I used the "Progam" mode on my Nikon D70, set to ISO1600 and "under direct sunlight" instead of "shade" as the latter seems to produce a yellowish tint on my pics and make them look darker.
Not the best of conditions, but the pics turn out quite OK, certainly not perfect unfortunately.

It would appear that they do not set a min and max age.

I'm sure you're looking forward to the Madrid WC. But what are you doing in Robin Hood county, studying for a higher degree?
Wish I could join you in Madrid!

Thanks Loh. ISO 1600 explains the noise. Kwun's experience is the D70 is noisy at this level. Try setting to tungsten light if you have a yellow twinge.
Try setting to Aperture priority and use the maximum aperture possible that your lens allows. Shooting with aperture priority is what I'm doing know.

I do hope Rashid's project goes pretty well as I would like to see this youngster in major tournament in the future. Can't wait............
Yes, I can't wait for my holiday in Madrid in few weeks time. Are you certain that you can't join us this year? It seems u have been to my place or u are a robin hood's fans? I finished my undergradaute degree 2 years ago and I'm doing a PhD now.

Here's my second writeup on the Singapore Satelitte 2006.
I arrived just in time to watch the closing stages of the XD quarter-final matches. Tantowi/Yulianti edged out their compatriot Frans Kurniawan/Nitya Krishinda 21-19, 23-21; while Lingga/Devi Tika Permatasari beat Yonathan Suryatama/Nadya Melati 21-17, 21-17. Tantowi/Lingga will meet Ong Jien Guo/Amelia Alicia Ancelly and Lingga/Devi Tika will square up against the local favorite Koh Yan Sen/Vanessa Neo Yu Yan in the semi-finals tomorrow.
I met up with Loh and wasn't paying much attention to the WS matches. Anyway, Gu Juan beat Melicia Kurniawan quite easily 21-9, 21-9. She will meet the no 1 seed Julia Wong Pei Xian. Indonesia's only representive in the semi-final tomorrow is Maria Kristin Yulianti, who beat her compatriot Maria Elvira Christina 21-5, 21-18. Her opponent will be Shinta Mulia Sari who unexpectedly beat the no 2 seed Xing Aiying 21-16, 5-21, 21-13.
Three of the MS matches went into rubber-set. The attention of the home crowd was of course directed towards the match between the no 1 seed Jeffer Rosobin and the upcoming Singaporean player Derek Wong Zi Liang. Derek was fast and furious in taking the first set 21-18. However, he committed too many unforced errors in the second set with at least 10 of the points gifted to Jeffer because of his out return. He lost the second set 11-21 and was unable to give much resistance to Jeffer as the experienced Indonesian player wrapped up the third set 21-13. Jeffer will play the Thai youngster Tanongsak Saensomboonsuk in the semi-final, who impressed me in his victory over Indra Bagus.
As for the other 2 matches (which I did not really pay attention to), Darren Liew and Andreas Adityamarwan won their matches against their fellow compatriots Chong Wei Feng and Fauzi Adnan respectively despite losing the first set. They will meet each other tomorrow. Serla came into the stadium just in time to watch Weifeng play but too bad...her idol lost
Then, the MD and WD matches began. the no 2 seed Frans Kurniawan/Rendra Wijaya were again impressive as they beat their compatriot Mohd Ahsan/Bona Septano 21-14, 21-14. They will have a tough match against the no 4 seed Malaysian pair Mohd Arif Latif/Vountus Indra Mawan who beat Peerasak Wirayapadungpong/Kovit Phisetsesarasi in two tight sets 21-19, 21-18.
The last match of the night featured the no 1 seed Yoga Ukikasah/Yonathan Suryatama against the no 8 seed Chan Peng Soon/Chang Hun Ping and Yoga Yonathan won 21-17, 22-20. They were down 20-17 in the second set, before taking 5 consecutive points to win the match. They will also have another tough match against the no 3 seed Koo Chung Kiat/Abdul Latif Mohd Razif.
In the WD, the no 1 seed Nitya Krishinda/Nadya Melati were hardly troubled as they beat Zhang Beiwen/Gu Juan 21-10, 21-14. Their opponent will be the no 3 seed Vanessa Neo Yu Yan/Shinta Mulia Sari who thrashed their opposition 21-5, 21-12 in just 20 mins. The other semi-final will feature the no 2 seed Yao Lei/Fu Mingtian against Puspa Shendy/Devi Tika Permatasari. Puspa/Devi struggled to beat Lim Yin Loo/Haw Chiou Hwee in three tight sets 21-18, 19-21, 21-19. There were plenty of long rallies with smashes and returns from both pairs. The Malaysians were particularly impressive with their defense. They were leading 19-17 in the rubber set but again, the Indonesian pair proved to be better as they took the last 5 points and won the match which lasted nearly an hour.
So, 9 of the 10 semi-final matches tomorrow will feature Indonesian players. Unfortunately, I don't think I will attend the semi-finals tomorrow due to the live telecast of the HK Open.

Again from Bola:
The Singapore Satelitte is supposed to be Maria Kristin's test if she is to remain in Pelatnas next year. She is scheduled to compete in 3 Satelittes starting from the Singapore Satelitte this week, JPGG Surabaya Satelitte next week and the Malaysia Satelitte (21-26 Nov). Technically, she is supposed to win at least one of the tournaments! She will have 2 tough matches coming up if she is to win...against Shinta Mulia Sari tomorrow and possibly Julia Wong Pei Xian on Saturday. A victory here will definitely boost her morale.
She's also seeded no 2 for next week's JPGG Surabaya Satelitte but with Pia Zebadiah's participation (as the no 4 seed), her chance of winning next week is not promising...

A few years ago I travelled parts of England, Scotland and Wales by car and we stopped by Nothingham and visited the forest of Robin Hood and his men. I still remember the huge and imposing centuries-old trees that Robin & company used to hide in to await their wealthy victims.
BTW, you must be Malaysian but I also note that you use Singapore as your location. Did you ever study here?

You must be visiting Sherwood Forest and the Giant Tree is there. This place is not very interesting at all. The only place I like most in UK is Scotland.
Yes, I am a Malaysian. I have been in Ngee Ann Poly for 2 years. So far, that is the greatest moment I had being a student. Opps.....I'm off topic now.....PM me if u got any Qs.
