Brilliant wall of fireworks (Hallowishes)

Newer Older

PLEASE view LARGE on this one, it's worth it :)

I absolutely love the wall of fireworks in the finale of Hallowishes (and the P&PP fireworks the one time I saw them).. it makes me want to be there on the 4th of July for 360° fireworks, though I don't think I could deal with those kind of crowds.

Taken at 10mm on a tripod about 7' tall. I stopped down to f/22 for the finale bursts and it worked out pretty well, though I did spend quite a bit of time in post on this one.

    Excellent work immersing the viewer in the scene. Unfortunately there were no perimeter fireworks this week, missed them by a day!

    DAMN! The time spent in post here was well WELL worth it. This is definitely one of the best fireworks shots I've seen. It's tough to get creative with fireworks shots, but you definitely did so here.

    A-1 tops! How the h-e-hockey sticks did you get a 7 foot tripod into the Magic Kingdom? Great idea and post work, Cody!
