    Haha ya. Will read up on the tips to take firework pictures. If there's any form of equipment limitations I guess I can't do anything much because of a self imposed rule on spending and other plans I hv... Will make full use of my existing equipments

    Ya to me it appears a lil too soft n a lil pale. Because I never take out my uv filter before shooting those. Damn.... Haha.

    #2 using lesser exposure but even for "dreamy water fall" effect. The rest are long exposure. I think that if I use longer exposure on #2 the details of merlion would be whited out n overexposed. I Kinda like the #2 too

    Well... that is where ND filter came into play.
    I am not a photographer, just someone who happened to have a couple of cameras.
    My lousy shots

    Nope. Even night shots might need ND filter. If your subject is very bright and thus you can't lower your shutter speed anymore before it became over expose, you might need ND filter.
