Because it's not too far away now...

Because Bonfire Night isn't all that far away and I was enjoying remembering last years fun, I uploaded this from 2007's night.

Hi Ryan - love the idea of this shot, it's just a shame that there is so much camera shake, probably needed some support (tripod/monopod/wall/fence/post). I did something similar last bonfire night too (page 2 of PF - Galloper Watchers) which was handheld but I relied on the image stabilisation, but I reckon a monopod/post/fence or wall would be just as good. Anyway click for effort. Looking forward to bonfire night, myself too - good luck, Karl.

Thanks Karl... I had only taken up photography a month or so before this shot, having upgraded from compact to DSLR. I like it cos it was my first real challenge. It was handheld you are right. I now have a tripod and will be looking to improve this year Smile

Once again great effort and very creative and well done for having the confidence to give it a go with your new DSLR.
No excuses now youve got your tripod lol.
