Photo critique Here is where you can display your images and seek the comment, advice and, maybe, constructive critique of your work. Only post your images here if you are happy for frank feedback. If in doubt, use the beginners board instead. Only post your comments here if you feel you can make a constructive and polite contribution in response to what is, for some, a leap of faith in exposing their work to your critical comment.

Fireworks 3

Hi There

Our firework display was on the 6th November

My first crack at this subject and I've learned a lot from my shots for the next go.

Cheers

Hi Dave - I think I just realised the scale of this picture - if I am right, the ground level shows some tiny sheds and fences, or is it an optical illusion?

Anyway, it's s good dramatic shot that looks like you were stood back a long way and yet captured the display really well in the frame.

Ian

Re: Fireworks 3

I rather like the shot Dave, its kinda "The Complete Firework" which you would only get from taking at a distance as you have done. Think I might have preferred a tighter crop though, with a little off the left at least

Re: Fireworks 3

Good shot dave. I like the clarity of the fireworks that you have achieved. So many people dont use a steady enough tripod and the lines can be a bit jittery. I havent really taken any decent fireworks shots myself, but would really like to. The only niggle I would have is that I feel the background is a little too dark for my taste. I would like to see a little more definition on the ground around the base of the fireworks. Cheers Richard

Re: Fireworks 3

Hi Guys thanks for your comments.

The shot was take from distance, cliff top looking down onto the shot location - it was my intention to "get the whole thing".

It all tends to happen so quickly - next time camera in portrait position.

Cheers
Dave R
