Looks good murviper. You went with the 50mm instead of the 10-20, I see.

Nice shot! I was there last week as well! I was able to shoot from the small lookout tower and used the 10-17mm fisheye to get both falls and even some of the buildings. They came out fairly well, but could have been sharper as I just manually focused to infinity, which I am now regretting.

Fire In The Sky

Nice shot! It looks like you caught one of the displays that sets off a half-dozen smaller rockets out of the central one, and your shutter speed was long enough to capture the entire display. Good work!
Were you far away from the launch? A 50mm is a pretty narrow FOV for fireworks...
