    Yup, the wind was quite big just now, errmm, not that fantastic except a few shots. Manage to take a few clean shots only (1st few after it started), then getting smoky...affect my whole view.. hopefully weather will be fine tomorrow...

    Those on the right side would have gotten the worst of the smoke. THe center and left sides seemed pretty clear.. It was a fun experience if you were just there to watch.. Although the human ob was NOT something i liked =p

    Is it easy to set up the tripod and camera at the seats? Looks like not much space.

Not a very good spot coz abit too near to launch pad but at least get to shoot some smoke.

    Bridge may be close tomorrow night as well so do take note.
    hi...can go into the construction site meh?? or on the ledge next to the water (precarious!) can show any pix etc?

    Am really curious why sheares is closed...soo many fireworks before...the ones at the stage shouldn't be near enough to the bridge... damn it..was planning sheares for tonight, think have to go marina east..

    In any case, if you can figure out where the wind is coming from, the best place to shoot would be with your back to it.
    Shears bridge. Police chase everyone out of the bridge bout an hour before the firework commence.

    Wind is blowing inland direction lastnite so still quite all right.

    I ask the police whether can walk down the stairs from the other end he said ok. While inside the construction site, a well dress and spoken gentlemen (probably a site manager) join in the photo shooting and even chit chat with me... so i guess it's all right bah...

    Maybe you can set out earlier and recce the place for a good spot... or try using Google earth for some tips.

    The crowd wasn't as bad as compared to this year's one. Unless u're taking it for the 1st time this year.
