    You did a damn good job at the fireworks! Without a tripod, I wasn't too sure how they would turn out, but they're awesome to say the least.

    My only suggestion for this is what if you made a portrait crop so that the large red fireball is in the middle over the Magic Kingdom? Crop it real tight!

    Look, I did not create the optical laws of the Universe ... I simply learned to deal with them.
    Remember: It is usually the GLASS, not the camera (except for moving to Full Frame), that gives you the most improvement in your photography.

    Yup! Not a big fan of that blue vignette though

    The A350 should make a nice crop with that 14.2 MP sensor

    Prefer basic black?


    or the "Ghost Host?" Muahahahahahaha! (my apologies to the "Haunted Mansion")


    Or even the Crystal Kingdom!


    You go, 'Millz' ... we're having too much fun with this.

    that's some steady arm you must have to be taking such shots without a tripod!! What was the exposure length?

    Just got back from Prague and my night shots without a tripod were abysmal Looked fine on the small screen of the camera body but once uploaded toi the laptop.... just blurry with streetlights looking like incendiary flares.

    I'll post a few of the daytime shots when I set up a hosting account tomorrow as I'd love some feedback.

    Millz said he was going to post additional shots. Geez, I hope I did not scare him off. This was to be ... "helpful?" ... "suggestive?" (shrug)
