[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Fireworks at St Jean-sur-Richelieu, celebrating "la fête de la St-Jean".

This was taken with the camera on a small tripod, "night" setting, which allows up to 8 seconds exposure. Minimal post processing, removed a couple of spots of noise, resized, sharpened.

Amazing how much brighter the colours themselves are reflected in the dark water. In fact, I'd be tempted to crop out the brightest of the fireworks at the top so that the focus is on the reflections -- but that's just my own taste talking.
Best regards

Hi Kate
Great firework shot, the shutter speed is good and the reflections in the water are excellent! Nice shot. I agree with Silke's point about the top firework, I think it may help the shot. Nice work.

It's curious. I thought that Saint Jean fireworks was only a spanish tradition...well, in fact, a catalan tradition. But i've saw pictures today from Italy, Canada, France.

The best of yours is, of course, the reflections in the water, very nice.


Hi Kate.
I love reflections very much, thanks for sharing.
Have a great week, best wishes.
