The last one is great. How many photos did you join? What camera? I like fireworks as well, but dam and grand canyon from part1 are my favourite.

Hi gfurm,

I had done something I've never done before with this photo, taking two shots for panorama with wide angle lens. The reason I've never done it was because the wide angle converter will create barel distortion and you can't put together the two 'distort' photos without using Photoshop to correct the lens distortion first (which is depend on how bad the distortion was, of course)

Fortunately, the distance between me and the Dam was very far and the Dam is already curve. So, the distortion wasn't too obvious in this case. That's the reason why I decided to use wide angle converter. The normal lens (35mm) that I normally use wouldn't do the trick in this case because I had to take too many shot with all different lighting (as I mentioned before, the Dam and the sky were too bright and the lake was too dark) and that will created a panorama shot with different shade between each frame.

btw, I used Panasonic FZ30
