    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

    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)
