    Out of quite a few shots, this is the only one that turned out ok. Definitely not a unique subject, but I thought I'd share anyways.

    Thank you :)

    Its a hard shot to get right. I experimented with a bunch of different shutter speeds. I used a tripod, but the guy is moving so much, it's almost impossible, not to get some blur in the face, while still getting a fire trail. A telephoto would have been useful, but that's still pending :p I pushed my way to the front for the shot on my first post :lol: I also had the ISO up for the latter shots.... Should have went with the lower ISO the whole time.


    Here's a few more, not quite as good But I'll post them anyway. Probably be better as a set anyways.

    Kind of looks like a phoenix

    The ladies were using Strings.

    The old guy was using this staff. Later on, he lit both ends. This is just in case anyone was wondering what he looked like. The lens flare is unfortunate, or I would have liked this shot better.
