    wow those look great.
    What settings did you use? There will be some fireworks shot into the air on friday, im planning on making some pics of that. I can only hope that they will look as good as these.

    Thx. The zigzgging is actually caused by the windy condition that evening.

    Thx Mentos. Yeah the Portugese Big Bang (Fireworks by the Portugal Team)

    Hi doenoe. I was using F8 10s exposure mostly. Do bring a black card along, it'll come in handy :).

    you put the card in front of the lens when you press the shutter or something like that? So you wont have camerashake?

    Thanks friends for your encouraging comments :). I should be shooting another fireworks sessions tonight. I hope to come up with something nice.

    It's nothing to do with camerashake actually, cause u'll have to mount the cam on a tripod.
    The card is actually to control what u want to see in the photograph. Sometimes, the fireworks can get abit messy (i.e. if too many went off over a short period of time). 10 secs will allow u to capture quite alot of action. cheers.
