Depend on luck.

I was quite lucky when I took some CDB evening shots over there as the traffic was congested and the cars were not moving.

If you are thinking of taking fire works during NDP or Fire Works Fest, then think it might not be as easy. Due to the close promixity of the fire work, Sheares Bridge is usually closed for traffic, photographers also will need security pass to go up (for NDP).

Also, during NDP, don't think the bridge is opened for public access due to the performance by the soldiers that go upside down rappelling down the bridge and the fire curtains during one of the performance. Thus, it might not be an easy access for the general public.

But you sure can give it a try. There is a series of stairs to walk up near Temasek Ave / Suntec area, the gate is opened for certain period of time only (normal days). But it's a long way distance of walk!

It does vibrates very badly....may be the traffic was stop during the fireworks?

Even not, I am sure all vehicle will slow down to crawling speed to watch the fireworks lah.....may be thats why...what do you think?

:think: I don find any blur photo out of all the fireworks/nightscape I took there... probably more than 50pics at different time

well I dono the cars stop or slow down or wateva (but I doubt so, it will just jam the whole traffic up)

but as far as my previous fireworks goes (CNY firework and New Year), none of the 100+/- remaining (fireworks + other misc) shots have got blur that need one to worry about even when viewed at 100%...

Maybe im lucky or wat/ :dunno:
