    Went out at 1pm yesteday to meet a bunch of friends to shoot the countdown fireworks, reached the bridge at 7.30pm and stood there in anxious anticipiation till 11.59pm when the fireworks started.

    Took me 2 hours+ to get home by bus though. :8Ball:

    Hi guys, thanks for the comment, it'd have definitely been worth the wait, else I would have banged my head against the railing ;)

    The last three of the fireworks are spectacular. My favorite is the second fireworks picture where they form a horizontal line. What kind of exposures did you use?

    Thanks.

    Funny. "My favorite is the second fireworks picture where they form a horizontal line."

    Thanks, SfoxJohn

    Hi John, fireworks and Esplanade shots were done using Bulb exposure via a cable release. Glad you like them, at least my 5 hours of standing hasn't gone to waste. :biggrin:

    Your five hours of standing was a great investment for us - thanks for sharing. It looks as though it was a real spectacle. What are the little blue thingies in the water?

    They were just white floats, the lights nearby helped to illuminate and reflect the lighting to create mood/effects. :)
