[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
2006 has gone and 2007 came in on a wave of fireworks around the world and Bahcesehir was no different. From our vantage point on top of the hill we could see four or five displays. This shot was taken over 20 seconds (I put my hand in front of the lens between explosions).

Post process was mainly crop and levels work in CS3 Beta. If you've got CS2 (You can only download the Beta if you have a CS2 serial number) then I recommend trying CS3 Beta, camera raw 4 is a much improved tool and has a great way of converting to B&W - see the NAPP website for videos of how it works

Happy New Year.

Thanks for sharing.


Hi Andrew,
Great details in the fireworks. You exposed well to capture them as well as the city. Composition is also very nice. I think the shot goes really well with the simple white border.
Well done,

Excellent capture of these beautiful fireworks. You had a great vantage point up on the hill with such a lovely view in front of you. Very nice composition.
Cheers Joan
