I had some good shots, and poor shots, with the NYE fireworks, I should be able to post some up soon. Some of my shots, had a massive amount of noise in the shots, some had a little, and probably 5-10 of 150 shots were good. A lot of the real noisy shots, are trash bin material. I was shooting with about half a second exposure, It was done through trial and error, as was my first fireworks shoot. I think I had auto ISO on, and I reckon I should have had it set on 100 or so. My aperture was between 8 and 11. My question is when I have alittle bit of noise, is a simple blur the answer, I have yet to see good results with noise reduction filters. I find that when I do portraiture with women, if its a bit noisy, a blur goes very well. But is this the best solution, Its not as if we are looking for sharpness in the shots. I'm still yet to take a night shot whithout flaws, and I'm in the belief, that its not possible without editing. I had a city exposure of 30s and I still had black spots in city signs.
