The red danube waltz

Taken while on holiday in Budapest during the grand fireworks show on the 20th of August. I was prepared for the event, so I brought some gear for the occasion, however i didn't imagine how hard it would have been to find a decent spot where to put it Eventually i find one with a nice view of the Parliament and the Chain Bridge.

This was taken with the DA35mm Limited at f/8, bulb exposure controlled by cable release, it was one of the first exposures before the smoke built up, and luckily it turned out good. Hope you like it as much as i do.

Well done to have captured them in sync and perfectly in frame, not easy at all

Eye catching shot of a subject that can be rather daunting to capture.
Clear and sharp.
