Chinese Lunar New Year, 2014

A fireworks celebration of the commencement of the Chinese Lunar New Year at midnight on 31st January 2014 at the Crown Promenade.

These images come from two cameras, operated differently, one photographing in landscape orientation and the other photographing in portrait (vertical) orientation.

The portrait images were taken over extended time of 25-30 seconds at f22 ISO 100, with an ND4 filter on the lens, and covering the lens on rare occasions with a black cardboard mat.

The landscape images were taken at varying times of 3.2-6 seconds and different f stops ranging from f16 to f22 at ISO 200.
