New Year's Eve fireworks

Glenelg is one of Adelaide's prime public places for people on New Year's Eve. Promoted as a 'dry zone' it is a place for young and old to see in the new year. At midnight there was fireworks show from the end of the jetty that lasted about ten minutes.

Every year I plan to have a party on my yacht and motor out and anchor just off shore to see the fireworks. Yet once again the weather was not kind; after a scorching hot day a cool change came in - windy and lumpy seas.

Hello Tony and Happy New Year to you and all your readers/viewers. Did you use a tripod and slow shutter speed for the fireworks shot?

Twaklin - Happy New Year to you. Yes I did use a tripod. The settings for this photo were ISO 200, f11 and 4 seconds.

I used this setting for most shots, but many looked a bit strange - too long an exposure. I would try f8 and 2 or 3 seconds next time; will have to wait for Skyshow.
