Default Castle silhouette

Yes, I know that it is a kind of a cliche shot, but I just like the way it looks. It took a little practice and a learning curve, but in my experience, the E-3 does a good job with fireworks. I can depend on it to give the results that I am looking to achieve.

Thanks Ken. I realize that it was a typical tourist shot, but I liked the composition and the fireworks pattern behind the castle.

And that's what I like also. Makes the castle stand out.

It might be a cliche, but it is a very well rendered one, excellent shot.

Ooops my apologies everyone. I just looked at the shot on a bigger screen than my little laptop, and realized that I posted the ooc original instead of the one with some noise reduction applied. This is the shot with some noise reduction applied to reduce the background noise in the black night sky. I think this one is better:
