    Didn't take NDP fireworks this year, but went for all SFF shows.
    Wish they'll have such stuff annually!

    i think it would be more difficult to find people who didn't took fireworks as compared to people who did. Becoming a bit like the race queens series already. loads and loads of the same subject (but of course some are better than other)

    Hmmm..... this is the first time i am taking fireworks also.....
    And I join CS after i saw the first fireworks and went on the web to search for other people's work..... and I happen to find this forum and so I also register in.....
    I took the first fireworks from Cityhall..... i dun like the outcome and 2nd one i went sheares bridge.... it is better but out of 20 fotos.... i think only 4 can let ppl see.... hahaha....
    the third i went Clifford Pier, actually i wanted to go Marina Bay open space.... but it was raining at abt 3++ and i scare tat place too muddy.... so i went clifford pier....
    Outcome not out yet cos I am using film SLR and i hv not the time to develop the fotos yet.... anyway.... its my first try on it.... i will gain experience this yr and hopefully next yr i can do better....

    I went there too late (15 Aug at SFF) and could not find parking, so my wife was nice enough to suggest that she take over the car and drop me off while she park at my office (next to Raffles Hotel)! I really didn't expect so many people.

    Thanks to her, I managed to set up my camera in a rush at a so-so spot the other side of the bridge just before it started. Sorry she missed it though.
