    I tried shooting fireworks for the 1st time last night from Queen Elizabeth's Walk. Felt I only got the side profile of the fireworks as the individual bursts were quite close to each other.

    Could be due to wind but the floating platform side seems to have a better view as shown here http://www.clubsnap.com/forums/showthread.php?t=844162

    Yes but the upwind direction has changed.
    So if you have a wide angle lens just shoot near the floating platform.
    Shooting at the spectator stand will just give you lots of lens flare.

    You might get a bit of smoke as the upwind is from Flyer towards Maybank.
    Show a picture of my fireworks, couldn't PP much as I forget to set to raw.
