    Default Heavy rain 3mins before ndp preview fireworks

    Any clubsnappers were there today? It was such a disappointment after camping for some time... In the end got to hide from the rain and no fireworks photo were taken

    It's not 3 mins before the fireworks, it's more like 20 secs for me. Lost form.

    There were tons of photographers shooting from the bridge, those shooters sure jialat one, cannot xiam cause the rain came so sudden. I'm shooting from One Fullerton and I got wet. Can't imagine what happened to those on the bridge. Anyone from here kena?

    i guess many were caught by the sudden downpour. I dashed for the nearest shelter which was about 100m away..

    It's a heavy downpour bro. It's not just the photographers that didn't manage to find shelter in time that got wet, the NDP parade is still going on as well

    I don't think anyone there with a D3 or a 1D3 will be very bothered either

    I was at outside the esplande waiting to shoot but ...quite disappointing.

    anyway, i find shooting from the bridge or esplande with the construction back ground is spoliting the whole shoot. i think i will shoot from Marina barrage next week.

    I was at the bridge... suddenly rain come and everybody was like running. Luckily I kept my cam fast and ran holding tripod. This is my 1st time trying out a night shoot so its kinda disappointing to end it with almost no pictures...

    I was at the marina barrage n was caught in the rain as well. But, majority of the fireworks were block by the IR.
