new year fireworks at the burj al arab as we enter year 2008.

we were struck in traffic while going to the said venue. as soon as we saw the lights, i went down to the car, run and found a spot close as possible to shoot some.

i was fortunate to capture this momentous event.

happy new year everyone!

Hi Jeff!
Wow, what a fantastic shot! Wonderful colors and an incredible mood in your beautiful composition!

Hi Jeff! Lovely Burj New Year image. I like how you framed everything including the subdued lighting of the Burj Al Arab. Great colors and details. Some noise and moire effects are apparent but its due to the busy details.
Cheers and manigong bagong taon sa inyo dyan! :)

Hi Jeff,

Nice capture, despite the traffic! Good thing of getting stuck is that you still had a pleasant distant point of view to be able to get a good overview ;-).
Also best wishes to you for 2008!

Greetings, Dennis
