Well I thought I had posted my best looking firework shot with my last upload. However while going through my photos again I found a better one, so although I only had the intention to load one fireworks photo, I have to upload this second one.

i commented on your other shot ... and i agree that this photo is better. the framing is nice and tight. the reflections on the water are very solid and striking. colour in this photo is great.

Fantastic light and color.Smoke from rockets give special feeling too.
It is hard to take night shots like this and you defintively need tripod. greetings Vlado

This is an excellent firework shot. The timing is great, the exposure spot on, and the framing just right. You have caught good reflections in the water and the smoke filled air is well caught too. Excellent stuff.

Spectacular shot beautifully executed, Brendan. Quite honestly I don't do this kind of shooting but when you see something as accomplished as this, its "Wow!", you know...
jinju (14265) 2006-01-29 5:57
Brilliant colors Brendan,
both this and the last one are fantastic shots. Very dramatic stuff.

Excellent work again - great colours & good use of long exposure to get the full effect of the fireworks.
cherryripe (21033) 2006-01-29 11:21
Great composition and good choice of vertical framing. The colours and details of the fireworks stand out really well. I like the smoky city and reflection.
AmiBe (6042) 2006-01-29 18:40
wow, one of the best firework shot I've ever seen.
Superb colors and excellent exposure.
I like to see the city, not only the fireworks.
They looks very big.

One of the things that I like the most in the New Years Eve is fireworks.
This is great one, but I also like the one in Sidney a lot.
Great colors and well captured.
dolin (15647) 2006-02-02 3:49
Une autre superbe prise de ce feu d'artifice.
La compo est superbe et t'as denouveau une excellente gestion de l'expoisiton
Ce peu d'artifice est un des plus beau que j'ai vu en photo !

Wow it's just superb, glad you posted this one as well as the spreading of the colors and the freeze of the movement is excellent, I see f/6.3, what was the speed and the program you used ? I have to try it some day... need to wait for july 14th I guess !
Have a nice day,
capthaddock (28790) 2006-02-03 10:39
Hi Brendan - this one is indeed better, the fireworks fill the sky, the reflections are brighter and there's even something shooting up from the ground.
greg64g (11193) 2006-02-04 4:35
yeeeeehee simply perfect here. congratulation for this one. Colors and foreground are so beautiful.
ALSOM (6616) 2006-02-07 4:49
Another great one. A light flower over the city.
TFS, Alain (back soon)
bertolucci (13358) 2006-02-07 16:38
Hi Brendan, a well exposed and framed fireworks pic with delighful colours. The skyline of Perth really adds to the attraction. Really very good!
Have a nice week,
tcht (7565) 2006-02-08 15:46
Both of ya fireworks r really nice. Great colors & detail. IMO this one has a better framing. Refecltions of those office blocks @ backgkround on water works very well, too. Good work. TFS.
erdna (5711) 2006-02-08 22:09
Very, very nicely done. Providing a little bit more contrast it will make it look better.
danielswalsh (13599) 2006-02-15 20:03
Great shot Brendan!
I've tried to get some shots of fireworks like this- but I'm NEVER happy with my results. i guess fireworks just aren't my forte.
Well worth posting!
Janice (4403) 2006-02-16 2:29
Excellent capture of the fireworks and the city Brendan. Colours and details are great, so is the sharpness. Well done, TFS
Quentin (5280) 2006-02-16 23:15

fantastic flowers over a fantastic town..
toni_al (15875) 2006-08-04 14:12
Les feux avec la ville en arrière plan donnent une superbe image. Le temps d'exposition est parfait.
AdrianW (2274) 2006-08-20 15:55
Great shot! I've always been a sucker for fireworks shots, and this is a cracker :)
A couple of things stand out though - firstly I'd be inclined to add a 1px black border before the white to keep the image "in" if you see what I mean? Secondly, the reflections at the bottom of the image splay outwards - a little perspective correction would probably fix that. Finally, not sure about the effect of all that smoke on the buildings - they've lost sharpness (either that or they're slightly OOF), perhaps consider a little selective dodging/burning or a gradient fill layer to bump the contrast back up, or a bit of selective sharpening depending on what the cause is.
Anyway, that said, a lovely capture :D
hoorge (1434) 2006-10-09 21:39
Excellent fireworks shot. Great vibrant colors, clear and distinct.
lilimih33 (9918) 2006-11-01 8:12
Hello Brendan! Wonderful shot! Great colours in your composition! Very well done! Lili
cyrrhus (2878) 2006-12-31 9:56
This is a very good shot of a firework. Not only because the exposure of the firework is perfect, but essentially because you to the buildings and their reflections at the same time. I love the smoky transition between the firework and the city. Excellent.
Hope you'll be there for the next Australian Day!
Happy new year.
