    Dinner? Maybe. But from the experience of last years I guess they all finish dinner by 10pm latest and rush down to Chinatown to see 3min firework and breath 15min of fumes and smoke. Nothing much to shoot cause firework is at rooftop of the building opposite Lucky Point.

    I have tripod, I will use it.
    And what do you mean by "during the 'pause'"?
    Is it same effect as ND filter? which to make the light darker?
    I meant the 'pause' as the silent period between fireworks going off. Sometimes there is a 4 or 5 second gap, so the black cloth (apologies for suggesting cloth if card works better) is to cover the lens and not allow light to enter.
    Hmmm, ooops. I didn't suggest f/22 specifically. Just meant that a small aperture is preferable... Perhaps that was a bad example. It's been quite a while since I photographed fireworks.

    I would say aperture between f/8 and f/16 would be good enough.
    Exploring! :)
