Superb, looks very floral.


There is a fine line between "hobby" and "obsession"

Wow, that's very nice indeed. It's got a bit of a floral quality to it.

Is there much post processing work involved or is it all in camera?
Care to share the technique?


Cheers, Paul.

Very cool photo. If you are looking for critique (which I assume you are), I might try a slightly looser crop, or clone out the one firework string that goes off the edge of the frame to the right. But what do I know ... I really like the shot, both the treatment of the main fireworks and the bit of smoke in the background to give it a little depth.

That is nice. I'm guessing a little zoom with shutter open?

Looks like he started OOF & focused during the exposure.

You nailed it. I've used this technique on other light sources with some very interesting effects.

Wow, that's awesomely well done. What's your keeper rate?
Going back to the critique, on it's own, with the crop and smoke in the background I reckon it works 100%.
I'd also be interested to see more of an environmental type shot. Now with zooming that probably wouldn't work too well but if you could get a good exposure of the ground and sky (lit up by a fireworks explosion) and combine in post you'd be onto (which you already are) something very different and special that I doubt has been done before and could be quite stunning.


Cheers, Paul.
