Boom !!!!

Another from the QE2 leaving party, this time, what you see here is genuine, no major manipulation involved, those fireworks were really there.

stick with it Tim. This was tripod mounted, cable release, pointed in the general direction, lens wide open, (to allow a nice crop later on). Set on manual, i think this one was f8, and around 12 seconds. As you see the firework going up, trip the shutter, and pray... Smile

Looks familiar. Smile

I'm surprised this is 12 seconds Anthony, I would have said more like 4-6.

I like the inclusion of the foreground people and the vibrancy of the fireworks.
