    Thanks all for the responses. :)

    As promised here is another from that shoot. A few adjustments in Camera RAW, cloned out a few noise specs, cloned in a few more of the (star)trails, and just a slight crop. I'm quite pleased with this one.

    C & C would be greatly appreciated on this one.

    Nice! Our local fireworks were nice, but nothing like the big cities. Here is mine for today. Yesterday, one of the soccer players wore a Canada bandana in honour of Canada Day.

    I got a new travel camera last week. It's a Pansonic tz10, replacing the old Rollei 35...
    This image is the very first long distance shot. Taken with zoom and auto (iA) in Norway at the midsummer bonfire "Slinningsbålet". The bonfire is manually build by young people and it was an amazing event. I also uploaded a short video to youtube with more shots/video if anyone is interested in seeing the thing burn and fall http://bit.ly/a3QO3c

    Very interesting place to have a bonfire... it looks like it's made from wooden pallets. I'd be really afraid of climbing that thing to the top, no doubt. :eek: But all in all, a really neat shot. I'd like it even more if the tower wasn't centered so perfectly

    Film (Colour)


    Camera: Canon EOS 1000D
    Exposure: 0.25 sec (1/4)
    Aperture: f/6.3
    Focal Length: 50 mm
    ISO Speed: 200


    Opened up a few 99p disposable cameras purely to see what film was in them. The coincidence of getting red, yellow, green and blue was not planned in the slightest. Have an idea to build a photo frame around these. Soon.

    There's a B&W version of this shot too here, but didn't feel it gave the canisters colour justice.

    What a beautiful building. What is the name of it, I'd like to look that up?

    Norway! I thought the photo was impressive, but then I watched your video. Wow. What did you use to shoot the video? I have to say, it looks dangerous with all those people up there...

    Yes, a lot of wooden pallets :) I'm not sure how they get hands on so many every year.
    I did take a few more shots - not centered, but they were even less sharp and without the fog (is that the right word? Mist?). I did not process the image, but will try to crop it. Thanks for that info.


    Used my new little tz10 for images and video. It's a pocketcamera with more zoom (up to 16x). Just handheld and point/shoot on auto.
    I'm not from Norway, but happened to be in the area. I was told that it has been a tradition for many years for the local kids (14-19 years old!) It looks dangerous, but it must be a great place to grow up.

    Thanks a lot for the replies.
