This was the third year in a row that we’ve been up to the lake for the Australia Day fireworks. I decided to use my 35mm prime lens as lately I’ve been very impressed by it’s quality. And I also took along my tripod as two year ago I forgot, and those photos didn’t turn out too well.
I thought to try a slower shutter speed too for something different – to capture more light from the fireworks. From the past two years, my favourite photos have been those that I shot out of focus, thus creating the bokeh effect; hence I tried this again.
Overall I’m very happy with the results, especially as they got to the end as they released them more frequently thus more colour in the sky.
patiently waiting for people to walk past with flags. Lucky to get two girls with two different Aust. flags
and the last of them
lots of fireworks exploding here
This would have to be my favourite
this one is just nice and dainty
like the contrast in colours
this is basically how the original photo looked with the vivid red
I really liked the colours above the white, so I thought to add this as well
this one has a filtered applied to give it a more vintage touch. Not that you can really tell, but it’s there
this reminds me of all sorts of things, but in all a beautiful explosion
nice deep rich purples
like the contract in shapes
reminds me of a flower coming to life
when editing, I’ve used a special filter that creates this green and gold effect
