    Date: 27 January 2007
    Time: 7.00pm
    Venue: New Bridge Road



    A must-see for both locals and tourists is the Light-up Ceremony. In store for lucky spectators this year is a programme consisting choreographed fireworks, pyrotechnics and confetti as well as the setting of live firecrackers!

    The main firecrackers will be hung up at Garden Bridge (bridge connecting People's Park to Lucky Chinatown).

    Firecrackers will also be hung at some different places at Chinatown too.

    Event organisers will be holding a press conference as we near the 27 Jan 2007 date.

    Watch out for it!

    A person is useless unless he is standing up for himself, for his future, and for his dreams.

    Last year, too crowded to get anywhere near to the main event area unless you're prepared to come many hours before the scheduled time.

    Also fireworks there were not exactly spectacular (due to the space constraint there and safety reasons) and were not easy to shoot. From the nearby HDB block at Hong Lim, still got over-exposed buildings at just 2 seconds, F/8 at ISO 100. Need to shoot at F/11 or smaller. But then, the smallest aperture on my camera is F/8. So most of the pictures taken last year by me there were over-exposed fireworks. The one below is already the better one.

    From your posts in the recent past, you seem to be a different person from the L. Leow I get to know in this forum. You forgot what lens you own and also seem to have forgotten that you were at Hong Lim HDB block shooting the Chinatown Light-up fireworks last year. Even your nice gallery is gone.

    haha. Looks like you're not suffering from Amnesia after all.

    I will probably stick to a prosumer camera for the foreseeable future because the trouble of carrying a bulky DSLR system really puts me off and, as my understanding of photography improves, I've learnt to live within the realms of the prosumer camera's capability.

    I think for this coming Saturday, I may just wonder around Chinatown and try to capture the atmosphere on the ground instead of trying to take pictures of the fireworks.

    There are sure to be a few people on each of the highest levels.

    If I don't have anything better to do, I will be going on the streets around Chinatown area to enjoy the atmosphere and capture a few moments.

    May be 4pm shoot Spring in the City @Raffles City again and then to China Town at 5pm.
