Hello, tsk023.
May I just mention one point - the shots seem to be a little soft.
I could find no EXIF data on them.
So I couldn't tell if you shot them on tripod, or what aperture you used.

Hey tsk023, thx for sharing your 1st attempt with us. I have to agree that the shots are a bit soft. Perhaps you should watch your exposure a little especially with fireworks as the sudden burst of lights can cause the sky in the background to be overexposed leading to loss of detail in your firework trails.

Do keep sharing though! you'll learn a lot from the other more experienced photographers in the forums like I still am learning too.

Picture 1, watch your horizon, it's tilted.

Pictures 2 & 3, the lower right jetty spoils the picture. Make sure there is nothing blocking your view, which is the CBD skyline and water.

HTH.

Cheers!

Hi tsk023, welcome to CS~

Your 1st 3 shots are tilted as mentioned by bro Dingaroo...so do take note of that. Were you shooting with a tripod? They seem blur to me, or is it my eyes? :bigeyes:

The fireworks are overexposed, but these can be fixed during post processing.

Basically 1st 3 shots were quite poorly framed but don't be disheartened! You can only get better as you shoot more! Just pay more attention to the surrounding elements when you compose your shots in the future ;)

Keep shooting and hope to see more from you soon :D

Clubsnap is not the best place to host pictures. Suggest to use Flickr. Even Picasa is not too bad but that one not perfect anymore with their latest move to "resize" max photos sizes :-\

#6 - still looks 'soft'. So were you shooting with tripod?:dunno:

#7 - Trees were cut off at the top, and i'm not too sure what you're trying to show in that picture :think:

I think the mangrove one has got some potential :) Maybe can go down again and let imagination run wild a bit..see whether can exclude the boats, or even the shoreline.. just pure mangroves and still water..the lines of the mangroves looks attractive to me:sweatsm:This is near where?

Ahh..ok..I know where now..:)

Sure thing, but I am camera-less now;) I sold off everything and now having a break I guess. I still love taking pictures but for now, just to take a step back and think, read and see photos. It's weird, i know...:bsmilie:

Sometimes, without a camera in hand, things do look different..:)

I believed it shot hand held w/o tripod. seems blur due to hand shake..
