    i am using www.photobucket.com to link all my photos here, very easy. there are some others as well. you can check out.
    cloudy ar? hmm..the easiest way is to play with reducing/increasing, brightness/contrast on ps. no need do the hard way unless you want it perfect!

    ya last night you disappear

    no guts...?? hmm ok la since you afraid all guys, i date you solo!
    Meteor Rain very nice, too bad kana block by the tree and the top part out of frame.
    The easiest and fastest way for me to remove smoke in ps is using brightness/contrast to decrease the brightness and play with contrast. Other ps tools may take slightly longer time but results differ too.


    Ya right FZ5owner, most of the old-bees upgraded already so they are less active here and joining plug too. Err..I will upgrade sooner or later but will not sell my FZ5. So will always be around.
    We can always have our plug so long as someone have good ideas where to shoot. Need not shoot..maybe kopi too!

    Anyone keep parrots? haha..my parrot my model~

    yeah i agree... sighz must really go prepared.. i got fooled by the height...

    the fastest way to remove smoke in the fireworks:
    1) select the background layer
    2) press Control + J. this will create a new layer with the same stuff as the selected layer
    3) on the mode (should be selected as Normal), change to multiply
    3.1) if you think you want some smoke etc, then bring the opacity level down

    There u go.
    most of the smoke gone.
    Note: If you get overexposed photos, this is one way to fix it. use the opacity to fix the amount
    on the other hand, if you choose screen instead of multiply, you'll brighten/fix under exposure.
    can repeat for added effects.

    Think that your fireworks still got smoke?

    Additional steps
    4) click and hold the thing above the Text tool. select the burn tool.
    5) select the background layer (you should have 2 layers now)
    6) select an appropriate brush size (use the [ key to decrease or the ] key to increase)
    7) burn (aka darken) the visible smoke
    8) it's ok to burn the fireworks part if really lazy, you'll just dim the fireworks a bit
    9) if you very picky, then increase and decrease the brush size as you burn (step 6)

    think your fireworks deserve to be brighter?
    even more
    10) click and hold on to the burn tool
    11) select the dodge tool
    12) adjust brush size
    13) dodge/brighten/lighten the fireworks part accordingly..

    just a 5 min work, to show show only.. hope u dun mind RoBeY.. this is your last image.


    heh OT, but i think RoBeY was just abit behind me.. i was with 2 other guys sitting about 2 meters away from the water at the river bank.. haha the only 3 guys i think doing that..
