Playing with my new camera in one of my favourite areas for night shots and stumbled across a small fireworks display. Rotated, cropped, selective adjustments to exposure in different areas. Burned top half of image to remove smoke from fireworks. Bumped contrast and saturation, resized, USM, border, saved for web.

Nice idea for a photo. To me, it feels like it's lacking sharpness.

Fireworks over Sydney and now Perth. Iíve been away a bit this month. Did I miss some celebration in November? Iím pretty hopeless at night photography and havenít tried to capture fireworks yet so Iím probably not the best to criticise but the building lights just donít seem as clear as otherís Iíve seen. However, the colours are fantastic, especially those reflected in the water. Overall, a pleasing image.
