With Nikon Coolpix 3100 Fireworks Scene...
i owned a 3100 before, that little one did not disappoint me. heh
i really like this small camera
not bad, but they are a little too busy for me... i would have prefered just a shot of one explosion or something... but overall not bad
I know from experience how hard fireworks are. I shot them with my Canon TX and they came out good. I did the single shell pictuers and some of them look like big, colorful, sea urchins.
I like it, but i think they're a bit overexposed. I think you lose a bit of the richness of the colors in the bright white centers and, as a result, it looks busy. Add some different shades and colors in there and i think they'd appear much less busy. But they're still great pictures.
Thanks for your comments.
Nytmair and GregF422; Yes you are right, they seems too busy and overexposed.
Nice job...I really like the first one!
So what was the exposure etc.?
Very nice! I think I prefer the first one, mainly because it's just a little simpler - shorter exposure?
I had a go at firework photos earlier this year:
I found it difficult to know where to point the camera to make sure I got everything in frame - not knowing where the next firework was going to be or what type made it difficult!
I think you achieved it perfectly in these 2!
darrenw - i love in the 1st pic how the smoke and the backlight on the bottom give that sunset sky effect
