This looks at first glance like a slight blurred shot, but do you remember earlier I talked about a 'feathering effects, well zoom in a little on the actual fireworks. You will see how extending the time the shutter is open (assuming a suitable breeze) creates something similar to feathers in the sky. I do like this effect and haven't really seen many people explore the creative side of firework photography. It seems getting the non-bity absolutely right line is the goal. I do appreciate that as well, but sometimes allowing some extra creativity should be encouraged.
This was a long exposure, usually 2-5 seconds gets you tight straight lines, going above 10 seconds you risk ruining the shot with blur...but sometimes you get something unusual and pretty.
This might be the last firework, I do have a few more, but I think we have gone far enough. The next shots will be of something very different (once I get a chance to go out shot some more).
I am hoping to get a macro lens on black Friday - any lens makers or people in the know feel free to send me sale details for companies I should keep an eye on - I am UK based, so EU/UK is easiest for avoiding import tax.
