According to the NDP 2007 website, there would only be two days of Singapore Fireworks Festival this year. Unfortunately, I think that the 27,000 seats at the new floating platform would be available by invitation only.

http://www.ndp.org.sg/celebrations/national_day_fest/23_may/Fireworks.html

The 2 teams slated to present the performance this year is (from what I heard) Spain and China, representing Europe and Asia. The timing of the fireworks will be as per last year, starting at 2100hrs and lasting 15mins. A bit disappointed as I expected as many teams as last year though lols.

Hope this helps :)

Side question.

In local context, what is your preferred setting for fireworks: ISO, Shuttle, Aperture?

Do see if this is useful as it's been asked many times:

Personally, I would want a low ISO (my DSLR lowest is 200), a "sharp enough" aperture like f8, and shutter speed will depend on what you want to "paint" in the photo (tripod a must).

Side question.

Probably there will be fireworks at the NE Show which is somewhere in mid July, then the Preview too, which usually takes place 1 and 1/2 weeks to two weeks before the actual day itself.

yeah, i think Benjamin Sheares Bridge is closed - there was some commandoes rappelling/abseilling down from the bridge at some point, and i don't think I saw any photographers on the bridge today from the stands.

I imagine a good place will be Esplanade Drive on the bridge. The fireworks are fired from a platform just opposite the Merlion. But i think the best place to shoot is still from the stands, because from any other angles, I think you don't get quite a nice backdrop.

I was quite lucky to be in the stands today, and hoping my shots will come out well (they're on film). :bsmilie:

yes the shear bridge will be close (1lane) cause there will be fireworks raining down from there (not because of the commando repelling.. lol), that's y it's closed.. on NE show half the bridge will be raining, actual day the whole bridge!
the road outside the event will also be closed, 4 lanes...

hmm, i may get the schedule 2 -3 days before every sat.. so i update again!
