    Like the first one with the stars. How did you do that? Is it still 2 sec exposure?

    Default Nice unique picture of fireworks!

    Hey there, like No.1 pic..very unique and cute.

    Wow looks like alot of people are using the canon A80..and from several pics i saw so far, it seems a pretty gd camera considering its a compact digicam.

    thanks for sharing ur pictures..keep snapping!

    Hi Josephine, welcome to Clubsnap forums! Good attempts there. I like the last pic, good composition and nice colours from the fireworks. Do shoot and post more.

    Good effort....even for a 1st timer. Can tell your pics are cropped so work on your composition in the future...and yes, the horizon in the 3rd pic is slanted.

    Do include your ISO settings as well (it's not just about shutter speed and aperture size).

    it's not easy to shoot fireworks using compact cameras and considering the fact that canon are grouping the A series cam as BUDGET cameras,don't have a cable release,cripple by f-stop,more more more...

    Can really tell the different between A70 and A80.quality in compact cams are fast catching up.As for ISO setting,it's always the lowest.dun need to care much.

    mostly in my opinion the more important would be shutter speed,aperture and focusing.
    Lastly welcome to clubsnap and do post more pics.

    Great shots.... I like the first two shots. Nicely exposed.

    Well, I am using A80 too, hope can get some nice shot this coming sunday.

    By the way, if you interested can join some of the A80 users going for the fireworks this coming sunday. Good luck.

    Nicely done! I like your first one... star filter?? The stars together with the angelic looking clouds/smoke below is a good juxtaposition...

    hey,
    jojo07,

    go to Photoshoots and Outing in the forum. then we in (Singapore fire festival finale shoot outing) got more than 10 now .

    my big mistake again, leader is esoteric not chunger , must open my eyes wider not just to take photos lah.
