NYE '05 - Off With A Heartbeat by djsteen NYE '05 - Off With A Heartbeat by djsteen
Shot from the Cahill Expressway on New Years Day (technically). These were the very first fireworks that went off at the stroke of midnight.

I used a 200 ISO setting to get enough lighting without having to go down to a really low shutter speed. I was using 1/10 of a second in this shot. No tripod meant that some shots were a bit shakey but the majority were perfect :thumbsup::)

Oh, wow. Gorgeous shot!!

I love how you captured the fireworks. The colors are amazing, and the angle is so awesome XD! Almost like a bird's-eye-view, watching News Years day.
It's a mezmerizing shot, both awe-inspiring, and a bit romantic :). -lol- I like the things, like the heart, and the plain "HAPPY NEW" on the sign. Things like that, captured in the shot, add to it, I think.
Wonderful timing.
-lol- I like the reflecting lights, to, in the water.

Everything just sort of sticks out, on it's own, but it also all blends just right, making for an awesome picture.
It's all dancing, in the night air. ...

(I don't know quite enough for crit :giggle:)

-Keep up the great work :clap:!
