    Happy shootin and Happy Lunar New Year to all CSer!!!

    That's not a rehearsal. That's actually an OCBC event on Monday & Tuesday last week at the Asian Civilization Museum.

    Just over. Pretty mediocre. Not worth skipping reunion dinner to shoot. Lol.

    Maybe tomorrow's 8 min one would be better? It's at midnight anyway. Should have lots of time to eat. Anyone found the perfect spot yet??

    Note : the firework today was launched from the Esplanade Drive bridge. IMO, it is not a good idea to be shooting the fireworks from the Merlion park. it is just to close to take good shots...

    The firing point doesn't look so appealing.
    Canon EOS 5D, 24-70 f/4 L IS, 50 f/1.2 L, 70-300 f/4-5.6 L IS, 600EX-RT. Sigma 12-24 f/4.5-5.6 EX.

    Just back from Padang. Half of the fireworks are blocked by the trees. Today was the smallest scale public display of fireworks which I've seen over the last few years.

    Does anyone has a good view of the fireworks from their shooting location? Padang is bad. Can only aim at the sky with no cityscape.

    sheares bridge would probably be the best location.

    i agree with it... i was too near to the bridge n with some pro's... hardly got the whole view of it n the road lamp is blocking the view also... worst i'm using 18-55mm kits lens...

    the firework is really low, please take note...

    Was at Esplanade Park, facing the Esp bridge in front of the row of food stalls. View is okay but smoked out

    Guess the display is okay but the ending was kinda tacky

    very disappointed, doesnt have the wah or wow effect. but guess its for safety reason since the firing point is near to people.

    any pics from ur location?
    as for the ending firework that "fell" downward from the brig,i think u can only take a shot of it just as it's starting so u can avoid the smoke out.
