not as many entries as i expected, but i really like them all. nice work everyone. but one really stood out
because of the black background, i thought there were 5 pics for a second
i really like #1, but i wish the firework reflection was what was in focus
i dunno how to vote
#1 would be better if there was a real close up shot of the left eye and the firework reflection
but right now, the reflection is too damn small
I'm going with #4.
I forgot to check
i like #3. #4 is great too and so is #1.
Man, another close one.
#1 is my favorite.. its easy to take a long exposure of fireworks, but the reflection is much more original..
voted, nice work everyone
Some nice firework shots but I'm rather surprised that #2 hasn't received more votes. It's my favorite because it screams typical 4th of July.
1 would be awesome if it were closer on the eye, and more in focus.
just wondering. Have you ever taken "easy long exposures" of fireworks? and can you give me a link to some of your work?
I don't have anything on this computer (my main computer's motherboard blew, so I'm on an old back-up which was my wifes...)
But seriously, its not too hard, just stick your camera on a tripod, stop it up pretty high to get rid of any background lighting, focus on where the fireworks are going off, set the exposure time to like 4 or 5 seconds or something, set the iso low to prevent noise and ambient light, and click.
I've done it before, its not rocket science (no pun intended)
I'm not demeaning #3 by any means, trust me, the symmetry is amazing up top, but its not a hard shot (or an original shot) IMO...
I really thought I had a chance this time... oh well.
Which one was yours?
Since voting is closed, number 1
I didn't want to go with the cliché firework theme
I went with it #4
In for the next one?
I went with the cliché firework theme and won
