Fireworks at new years eve

    Newer Older

    What I like about this picture, other than the fireworks and colors, is the symmetry. The fireworks, the streetlights and the tree to the right complement each other, the lines are parallel.

    Not that much post-processing. Processed the raw file with Dxo Optics Pro 4.1, cropped and tweaked with CS2, selective sharpening and frame.

    Took this picture on new years eve. Since I submitted it to a photo contest I didn't put on flickr right away.

    Some have commented on the first streetlight, I actually like it. If you let your eye wander towards it and follow the streetlights, they lead you to the base of the fireworks.

      awesome shot! I especially love how the cool colors work together between the fireworks, sky, lights, and reflection off the street

      Ég sá þessa í Kastljósi nú í vikunni og þar var rangur aðili titlaður sem höfundur :(

      Jamm, það var frekar kjánalegt en ég nenni ekki að svekkja mig á því :-)

      Ég svo sem þekki þetta. Lítil virðing borin fyrir myndhöfundum í íslenskum fjölmiðlum. Ég hef lent í því að mynd eftir mig var notuð í blaði þar sem verið var að fjalla um Íslenskan ljósmyndara. Innan um myndirnar hans var mynd eftir mig en titluð honum. Þessi fjölmiðill hafði engan áhuga á að koma með leiðréttingu í næsta tölublaði og var bara með derring :)

      The most original fireworks photo I've seen. You couldn't paint a better foreground if you tried. I love it. The whole composition gives this feeling of stepping back from all the chaos of NYE and just appreciating the magic from afar.
