    I recommend Promotory. I tried shooting from Helix bridge during NE2 but the fireworks directly behind the floating platform is too close and cause some shots to be over-exposed.

    The wind direction is blowing towards esplanade so shooting from Promontory yields good results.

    It's not Kiasu.

    Nothing comes without an effort.
