    found this on the official website



    as usual, the firing point would be the future IR site and the esplanade area would sure be extremely crowded. u can try hdb flats around the city area like those in bras basah. download google earth and use it to help u spot nice highrise locations to shoot the fireworks

    how wide is really wide are we talking about?
    assuming most of us are using cameras with a FoV factor of 1.5x (nikon) or 1.6x (canon).
    is 17mm (before multiplying the FoV factor) wide enough? or do we need a lens around 10-22mm?

    last year was different. because the padang area was shut down for NDP, so they could fire off from the sea barge.

    this year, the roads will be open, and the fire off will highly be on the grounds below the ECP flyover.

    and yah.. i am still confused where to go.....

    There are 4 rounds of fireworks display tis year..so can get to try out different location for shooting..at least if the first location is not good enuff..we still have 3 chance..

    just hope the wind direction is right..else will have a lot of smoke..9000 rounds fired!! that's alot!!...

    Site to consider:
    1.) Sheares Bridge(ECP)
    2.) IR Site..(under construction, may not be able to enter)
    3.) Marina Bay..lower esplanade, opposite marina square, somewhere under sheares bridge
    4.) Book a hotel room
    5.) Brash basah HDB corridor

    Anymore sites to add in?

    i think marina city park would be nice. especially with the city skyline as the backdrop. the only worry is that the lens may not be wide enough...

    Last year I went to the Marina Promenade there... somewhere near the Sheares Bridge to take pixs.. quite good view but you must be there early.
