    Strange though, I would say that wiggly lines were the result of your shivering hands placed on the tripod-mounted camera? Or was your tripod shivering?
    How cold is it in Singapore at night to cause all the the shivering?

    Hahaha... my statement was intended to be a bit cynical.

    We all know that Singapore usually isn't cold enough to cause shivering.

    Hence, assuming that hands are not shivering, tripods can't shiver on their own, and fireworks fly without wobbling/spiralling, what else could cause the wiggly lines in the image other than a obviously shaking bridge? (Come on guys! You couldn't feel the bridge shake?)

    Ohh... I know... the combined vibration of all the cameras' flipping mirrors travelling down the tripods on to the bridge floor! Ohh... maybe the combined excited heart beats from everyone standing on the bridge travelling down their legs on to the bridge floor!

    I'm glad to see at least 1 fellow ClubSnap member who shared the same opinion about the shaky bridge. You have learnt an important experience and acted wisely (by moving to more stable ground). Good on you

    Experienced the same vibrations problem while taking shots of the night scene at the bridge at the end of boat quay. Was standing at the center of the bridge and as the buses go by, you can feel the brigde trembling. So I decided to move to the end of the bridge where the trembling will be less pronounced.

    On Sheares Bridge, it's not that bad, probably due to the size of the bridge structure. The vibrations have little impact unless you're doing really long exposures, i guess. Another possibility is that I was standing above one of pillars that supported the bridge, where the weight of the vehicles passing have minimum effect. My pics turn out to be pretty sharp.

    I suppose tt the reason some many CS photographers are there to help up.. with the weight it can help stablise bridge .. so everyone can get a good shot ... ha ha

    certain part of the bridge is not shaky at all .... u just have to know how the bridge is constructed and which part of the bridge is able to weight transfer heavy load . Fortunately my group of photographer friends didnt complain about the shaky bridge and even from my long bulb expose pic (49.56sec) i find it alright

    Haha... no... I won't make it my duty to advise people to get away from the bridge.

    You could post a bogus topic in local forums saying that URA/LTA/SPF/SAF/MINDEF will cordon off the bridge "for safety reasons" on 9th August.

    I didn't notice any part of the bridge floor was wet after the fireworks if there is any excitement travelling down their legs to the bridge floor but only a lot of tripod holes.
