    How about three photographers taking turns to stand on top of each other's shoulders?

    In fact, photographers to photographers can be bad at times sia. That day, I saw a narrow opening and I ask for permission from the photographers whether can I take the location. Guess the answer . If it is me, confirm I say can take. I very empathetic one.

    As I was setting up a few feet away, this guy told me that he would be standing in front of me. I told him it is alright. I tested and shifted and I could avoid his head and at the most, I DI certain area. Guess what, when the fireworks started, he put his daughter on his shoulders. When i called him, he said that he had already told me. Yeah sure, he only told me he standing up. Did not tell me that he is putting his daughter there. How irritating and inconsiderate can this person be. He just have to lift his daughter and she can already see.

    I was so upset and sad when that incident happened. Should have taken his photo and post it here so that his friends and colleagues can know what kind of person he is.
    i took sympathy on ur case...indeed that biatch is really inconsiderate for photographer.....if i am not wrong, singapore has been rated as country who not courtesy enough....since it is rated that way..why don you just kick her butt off and throw her into fullerton river...she is inconsiderate..u don have to be gentlemen either anymore..we back you up...each CS photog spit on her..oredi enuff to drown her ..yik yik yik...

    Guess I have better luck than you. Last Sat, I came at 8+pm and as expected it was crowded already. But I spotted 1 small gap, so I asked the photographers around if they mind if I squeeze in. They were quite gracious about it,and shifted a bit to give me more space . In return, I made sure that I did not block their view at all. Even managed to chat a bit about photography with them.

    Shooting from flats. Can be very good or bad.

    One kind auntie chatted with me and even said she will offer me a drink if not for the reason she's rushing off. Even asked me if she needed to shift anything along the corridor for me. And also offered me suggestions on where to stand and shoot.

    Another guy said very coldly "my family very big, they want to stand here". Could at least make himself sound better. Oh well...

    Not really. The stupid woman was an Indian and the guy was of mixed blood. My wife was having a clear view at the other side of the bridge taking video. My wife was having a good view until someone realised it. Immediately everyone rushed in front of her and stole the view.

    She suffered the same fate as me.

    Partly due to this, I would always source for other vantage points.

    Singapore is multicultural in nature. Must respect diversity. Even Speakers' corner cannot talk anything that will start or instigate racial riots

    Better still, I will stand right beside President Nathan. A First Class view indeed.

    He looks a little lonely standing by himself, I hope he don't mind sharing his platform with me.
