    if shooting locaiton same as sat, then option i. is shorter (and brighter).
    Er? You mean there is no staircase on the Marina Square side and facing the fireworks? (ie..the part of the bridge which is at its highest point) Only got one access point from the Marina South side?

    Haha alrighty...although I might not recognise you coz I dont remember looking at you directly to register your face. I was too distracted, and I only recall a "human presence" beside us!

    I hope people here are not planning to go too early!

    I will be going again tonight, and quite likely to the exact same location. The noise around me actually adds to my video! You planning to go?
    Never try Overseas Union House?
    I was there with the others (you know who).....

    heh....rest assure it be on tonight as in 9th August as the clock strike 12 midnight lah. I think it is a typo or they just was not good with expressing it.

    The newspaper still mentioned the wrong location for the firework! hehe...Not to worry...tonight is the night at the midnight hour.

    If I am wrong even I would be caught out when I am there at the ECP bridge too heheh...They screwed me on the location on the 6th August...they better not screw me on the Eve of National Day's Firework too! heh.

    Cheers...

    Are you driving? If not, you might want to consider the other side instead, since public transport will be available there past midnight?

    Under the bridge is not good enough for you to catch the entire firework display. Trust me....you need to walk further in right up to the point where the bay bends left. That is where you should be to catch the firework on the opposite bank. I was positioned at the top of the bridge at that point you are thinking of going and when the firework started....it caught me by surprise as it happend on the opposite bank ..so in turning my camera to the left..the trees along Marina Promenade Park block half my shots on the left!

    As you are at the bottom of the bridge, you will find yourself blocks off as people start looking to the left and you will now have to aim your camera along the path way you walked in along... plus..the row of trees and over hanging branches as you aim up to catch the firework display will partially block your camera's view!.

    Just a tip.....good luck.

    I realise sometime back that there is no real good place, just have to make the best of a bad situation.. I mean location.

    I was just somewhere 100m below and away from the bridge thinking the firings will be near where the Marina Carnival is and from my last fireworks outing I told myself not to position close to the firing site, thought I must learn from past lessons, this time have new lessons.

    The crowd pre-fireworks all seated well behaved, the moment fireworks started people all jostling for a good view and thus alot of heads appears in most of my shots.

    I didn't make any attempts to take previous pre-NDP fireworks but went yesterday, was surprised at the large crowd.

    Anyway, have some shots still ok to save. May go again today... not satisfied with all the heads appearing in my photos.
