    Here are some trial shots. Sorry for the blurry pics primarily becos the bridge vibrates when vehicles past (especially buses!) and smoky too. U can also see the zig zag lines on the fireworks trails due to the vibrations. That's y i needed opinions for a better shooting location.

    Nice.. Thanks for posting the shots. Looks like the vibrations pretty bad.. Though it does make the fireworks looks more interesting!! So.. the bridge is not that ideal either!!

    Err... I think the bridge would be closed on the actual day, so no vibration caused by moving vehicles...

    U can make it closed by ensuring that the entire bridge collapses so that it would be closed.

    By 7PM+ it's gonna be very packed.

    That's what I see every year.

    So if you are going, I suggest you leave home early, chop space, read book or smth (Bring lantern lamp if u have)
    Esplanade Bridge is that bridge near to Merlion right?

    Hahah megaweb's flash fireworks thingy...still remember it.

    Well why wait for hours for 5 mins of fireworks when you can have hours of fun conjuring your own fireworks magic in the comfort of your own home?

    Yes it does make the fireworks look more interesting as seen in the last pic, but i still prefer if there're no vibrations.

    Bravo! Looks like taking from the bridge is still a viable option!!
