    Went last nite too (kinda last minute thing)...was positioned at Esplanade Bridge...surprisingly not much people around the area (perhaps coz it was a weekday?). But saw lots of other photographers around waiting patiently for the fireworks to start. It was nice but rather short (around 3-4 mins duration only).

    It was my first experience taking fireworks and the shots were kinda disappointing...only 3 or 4 good shots out of 15 or so...but I just treat it as a learning experience...hope to get better results tonite heheh...as djchris said...at least noe where the fireworks gonna shoot from and where is the best position...

    So whose going tonite for the River Hongbao thing? Wanna meet up or something?

    Last nite's fireworks for the opening ceremony were at 8pm. Tonite's one is at 12 midnight.

    Good place to shoot...lots of places...the entire stretch of Esplanade Bridge facing the bay, Merlion park, One Fullerton waterfront, Esplanade waterfront. The fireworks should be coming from the big grassy patch of reclaimed land just next to the Benjamin Sheares Bridge. IMO best place to shoot should be Esplanade Bridge and at Esplanade waterfront. But of coz there might be a big crowd there tonite, unlike last nite. So go early to "chope" good places.

    Yah its been raining cats and dogs the whole day. Hope tonite it would be good weather *crosses fingers*
