Just wow, Eric! These pictures show every bit as much technical ability as the pictures of birds that you post. The colors are awesome. I really like in the second picture how you captured the firing off of the new fireworks as the previous ones were already blossomed out in the air.

Howdy Geoff, I needed a break of bird photography, so I went to try these

You have good eyes to figure what happened between shot 1, 2 and 3

Thank you very much

Aaargh! I'm still trying to get bird photos one percent as good as yours and then you post fireworks pictures to die for. Eric, would you please simmer down?:sad:

Barbara... you can do the same to with your camera, if there's some stuff you can't do because of lens consideration (birds as an example), these can be done by anyone, as long as you have a tripod

I'll try to calm down, but photography is very addictive indeed :-)

I take your comments with gratitude

Cheers

I had to correct the image a little, since the super wide lens was pointing up to about 30 degree, there was a nasty effect of distortion happening on the horizon. If someone can tell me what's the name of the distortion, I would be happy to know. The distortion is still present, but I believe this is acceptable given the circumstance.


That type of distortion, common to wide angle lenses, is called barrel distortion. The sides bow outward like the sides of a barrel. Sometimes telephoto lenses display the opposite curve which is then called pincushion distortion.

I just got around to seeing these for the first time. Beautifully done, Eric. Beautifully done! The 12-24, eh? I don't have that lens, but I sure do like what I've seen of it.
