I present to you a piece I am truly satisfied with in my years as a professional photographer.

It's a 4 tile panorama with fireworks and a light show in it.

A basic run though from start to finish would be appropriate.

I secure the location 4 hours before hand to make sure I have the spot on composition to myself.

Of this 4 hours i had to shift my tripod two times as there was people that needed to open the gate.

When the fireworks started.. the wind blew in my direction causing alot of shots to be unusable. But I got quite a few of them as the wind was pretty strong to blow the smoke away quickly.

I spend an entire Sunday creating image. It took roughly 8-10 hours of computer time.

If you are observant you will notice some things I think not many people who shot this scene would have corrected.

1. The tiles on the bottom and railings are straightened.
2. There are firework light reflections on the rails.
3. light from the light show is reflected in the water
4. the fireworks are not pasted in.. they were shot as it is.

The only thing I could not do is get the reflections (if any) of the fireworks on Marina bay sands.

Thanks for viewing and I really do hope you enjoy the image and like/share it for more to see! This would be my finale to this years NDP fireworks as I won't be shooting it on the actual day due to massive crowds.

Have a great week!
