    Now we just have to plan how to take the biggest fireworks of the year with the biggest turnout.

    Anyone working in UOB building or Maybank, etc...

    Not true, I'm trying out what a guy did last year.
    He used a super tall tripod and stood on a stool to shoot.
    Only really bad luck can get you a tall inconsiderate guy to walk in front of your shot.

    Every time there are fireworks (NDP, New Year etc), I always go to same place for photography, Marina Bay ...and generally have to go super-early, 4/5 hours before the fireworks begin, to get a decent place to setup my tripod...any ideas on alternatives? ...like from buildings etc. I once saw this shot of fireworks taken from The Padang .

    To give you an idea, where were the following shots taken from:

    The Padang shot looks nice but it would require a UWA lens which I'm saving up for.
    The other links are all shot from buildings which have limited access to the public.
    So it's back to the "Does anyone have access to these places" and do they mind having a few kindred souls join them.

    Btw, mod I think this thread OT way off course liao. Could you help us move it to the appropriate channel. Thank you.

    No idea yet. Probably act according to situation since I got a little bit of height advantage.
    Maybe can discuss with you while back from CleonBus outing.
    But confirm we won't be able to walk to the stretch at Esplanade as the blockade will commence at 6pm.
    We will have to travel to Millienium Walk, Flyer and Helix bridge before reaching Esplanade.
    So it's not possible.

    I know I will be safe as long as you are behind me.

    Good effort lostsoulx90, the concert area has always been a hot spot.
    I reckon 5pm might even be too late since this is the hotest event of the year.
    Most of the foreign talents are given off on that day so they will go there too.

    The stinky stairwell is also good, its enough for three tripods side by side.
    But remember to recce where are the launch pads so that you can position your camera correctly.

    Fullerton area might be cordoned off by police for the patrons dining there.
    It's definitely a hot spot there just like the bridge besides it.

    Sian, soon it will become a competition between who has more "no life so is willing to spend time waiting for a 15min fireworks".

    My present main worry is that there isn't any strong wind blowing at night unless it is accompanied by rain.
    I got one too many smoky fireworks to last me a year, not interested to add another to my collection.
