If you make it out there, look for me. I'll have a backpack camera bag with an Intel Bunny-Person doll hanging from the bottom of the bag.
My daughter hung it on there about ten years ago, and I have never removed it. :p

Cool idea to take pictures of this. I love the timing of the guy in the last picture sticking his tongue out. The only thing I wish were for the background to be a little darker? As if to capture more of the shadows and emphasize the way the fire's imprint on film.

Very cool; especially like that last guy. Really looks like he's having a blast :) I do agree, though; a darker b/g would be nice.

Thanks folks.

Yes, a darker background would have been great. But there's actually a lot of light in that plaza at night.
Clear enough to see the homeless guy that was flashing a knife around. Yeah, I stayed clear of him, and made a conscious effort to not take his photo.

However, here's a shot from a couple of years ago that did have a darker background.

I was going off of these settings when I shot this time.
Next time, I'll try something a little different to try to get a darker background. Perhaps a smaller aperture.

Sorry Jeremy. I suck at photoshop. What you see, is what I shot.

Thanks. :)
