Brunel 150 years

By dasantillo  
It is the 150th anniversary of the Royal Albert Bridge this year and to celebrate, Saltash closed the road bridge and turned it into a firework display.

It was the best dislpay I've ever seen, but photographing it was very difficult. The fireworks were intense, which meant it was easy to burn highlights. I was operating 2 cameras on remote release and didn't have time to check results.

I processed it in Capture 1 and the highlight and shadow recovery was very impressive.

This is, perhaps, the best shot from the night. It's the view from my inlaws house, so possibly a unique photo of the event!

It was a superb display Dan. Your inlaws have one hell of a view!

I must admit, I was a little disappointed by the number of votes on this one... Thanks for your vote!
