Photographer's Note

On Australia Day up to half a million people gather around the Swan River foreshore or take advantage of high spots around the city to watch the annual Skyshow.

I posted this photo yesterday but decided it was such a lame effort that I pulled it back down and reworked it to bring up more colour and contrast.

It's the first time I have been able to get such shots and while it may not be the world's greatest fireworks photo, I'm happy with it as an initial effort.

I found that with shooting fireworks, timing was everything except that I had no control over the time so I just kept shooting and shooting. About a third of the photos were useable, about a third went straight to the bin and the rest were indifferent.

Love to hear any tips that others may have.
