Fireworks Competition

Recommended Posts

Advertisement (gone after registration)

In the city of Hannover there is a large area of gardens. The baroque part of the garden with the palace is a huge place. There is a fireworks competition being held annually with altogether 6 events during the summer months. At 6 p.m. people start to stroll around and look for a place to settle down for picknick on one of the benches or on the ground. Then at 10 p.m. the fireworks start and last for 30 minutes. This time it was a young Italian pyrotecnic group performing the mandatory piece was a part from Dvorak's symphony no 9 "From the New World". a second part was the group's own choice. 

 

It was nasty cold and people were right to wear winter jackets,caps,shawls and gloves! At least it did not rain.

 

In 30 minutes time we enjoyed a fantasy of colours and rhythmic scenic change. I had a gorgeous time and it was worthwhile having been there.

Really cool series. Ironically, I think my favorite is the one of the people. The color is outstanding.

      Like so many I am in a lockdown situation, and as a safeguard I have not ventured out for many week because of my age and heart condition. Those around me are keen to keep me a live for some reason! 😄 I have therefore been exploring the home environment, and also exploring my under-used 24mm Elmarit-M f2.8 ASPH.
      Here is one from my garden which was taken with the Elmarit on my M240, and then converted to black and white in Lightroom CC. Technical details are 1/90 f8 @ 2000iso Init is pretty dark under the oak tree). Hope you like it!

      Hi, seriously thinking of getting a Q-P, how do the colors compare with say the X1 or the M-P240 ?

      I'm new here and while attempting to make my first post I was surprised to find that the main thread for street photos contains black and white photographs, exclusively (the thread is even tagged "mono"), and the street photo I want to share is a color shot, so instead of sheepishly going away, I've started this topic.  I don't know if there is value in keeping the color street photography separate from the monochrome, I'll let the moderators decide that.  But currently the only thread of any importance in the entire street photography forum containing color pictures that I could find are all photos taken at beaches, so I hope others find this topic as useful and necessary as I do and post in it.  I'll go first.

      She was obviously high, which is why I followed her, and after I made this shot I asked her with a smile if she was tripping. "Yeah, tripping balls!" she answered and then did a pirouette and dashed off into Target before I could say another word.

      this picture stressed me a lot...  I missed the blue hour and there have been millions of people on the street and in front of the building. So, considering the circumstances... I'm still quite happy with the result.
