    Taken 47 shots, but only 5 shots are considered slightly more special. Decided to post up 2 of them, so, please enjoy. Comments and Critiques welcomed!

    Curly wily


    Buoyant city



    *Gotta go back next Tuesday to retake, from a different location, that is.

    #1 maybe a bit over, could have stopped down the aperture, but didn't turn out too bad. Maybe I'll try a little PS later.
    #2 was exposed for the bridge, not the fireworks.

    Any shots from you?

    thank you garion & reminisce for your kind comments. Glad you like the pic, I camped out there with my wife since 5.30pm...majority of the crowd only started forming after 6pm and by 7pm, it was totally packed.

    Yllew - great shot and thanks for alerting us to the colours of the Italian Flag in the first shoot-off, almost missed it!

    Geckoz- nothing to be paiseh about your PnS. Your pics turned out great (esp. the 2nd shot, Buoyant City. Did you use multiple frames to achieve this effect? Where did you shoot from?)

    SehSuan - I like your perspectives too. You managed to capture the ground-level fireworks which most of us didn't and without a tripod! Gd job. Were you shooting from the IR site? Do share.

    Hope to see more photos today.

    Thanks guys.

    OK, this is the story. I was shooting hockey with Actionman, then I suggested we leave the Delta pitch at about 7pm, to head for dinner plus recce on the fly for a spot to shoot. Original location that I wanted was actually the big plain just before reaching Marina South MRT. Saw lots of people there, tripods and all. I didn't read about the firing site of the fireworks, so I was also expecting it to be fired from the same location as last year - Fort Road area. So I was asking some folks, they weren't too sure. the time was about 8.45pm then - and then I decided to run the risk of getting nearer to the Sheares Bridge, and took a gamble (no, I don't buy 4D, Toto etc) and headed for the IR site because a friend at home told me that's the firing site (thanks to whoever posted the location on CS, that's where my home-based informer got the info). Managed to setup about 3 minutes BEFORE the actual firing sequence, and both Actionman and myself shot in the prone without support position because we did not have tripods. The shooting was actually easy, just aga-ration of metering, but getting to the firing site was the tiring part. If another person were to be with me instead of Actionman, some might just be totally convinced I'm nuts to take such a big risk. This was because we walked all the way (more like fast-marched from the Tanjong Pagar Food Centre, all the way to our shooting site. Some people would not want to break into a sweat before shooting etc, but Yoda (no, I'm not a Star Wars fan) said that simple term that I now work by - "Do or do not, there is no try." Either I get to the site, or I don't - I chose to move on. After this trying experience, I do believe I found a very good kaki to shoot with.

    Once again, thanks to the CS folks who posted up the firing site info. That was the key to everything.
