    Its a composite of at least 2 images..
    see the reflection around the landscape and under the fireworks..
    from the smoothness of the water can tell that the landscape is shot at a much longer exposure time..then merge the fireworks pic on top which explain the roughness of water because of the fireworks burst rate..

    I adjust the white balance of the photo at 7.40 pm to Incandescent mode so will have a blue color image. after that I combine the firmworks photo and the combination method I choose to be brighten. so the dark black sky will not affect the blue sky too much.

    should have other better method to do this I think.

    Thanks Focalpoint! But actually when one has been pushed to his own devices... the waterbottle becomes pretty handy!

    this kind of thing sometimes try luck one, i only get 10% of the shots that are really nice.. the rest all either overexposed, underexposed, or composition sala. anyway, this september might have fireworks again for the IMF event.. not very sure of the details yet.
