Hi John...

Just having a nosey before i turn in and i spied your great fireworks photos....I think they are a work of art in themselves...but i have a couple of ideas to have a go at tomorrow!!!

Goodnight

Re: Guf Fawkes night

It sounded like East Beirut outside my house last night, and the dogs were going spare, so I had to calm them down, and didn't get to see as many fireworks as I'd have liked.

Your pictures are a nice peaceful reminder of what I missed.

Thanks.

Re: Guf Fawkes night

Gary...I remember well the noise of Bonfire Night..had two dogs when i lived in England...its not a nice time for them!!!

I have been playing with filters for your photos John....

The one i changed to blue with Flaming Pears Aetherize,Niks color solarize and a frame from AAA filters..
The other two i cropped a bit and used Lucis Art Pluggin and Niks color solarize...frame again from AAA filters...

Re: Guy Fawkes night

Hiya Pat, nice to "see" you again...Yes I am very happy with the camera...there's more settings on it than you can shake a stick at tho' and remembering what they all do is a nightmare! For instance there is a dedicated setting on it for firework displays, and then there are 3 different settings inside that! It took me a while to work out the best way to "capture" the explosions(157 pics and only about 20 or so any good )----I love what you've done with the pics especially the second one, you seem to be able to get Lucis to do just enough....magic!!!
Gary...yea it was like a war zone around here all weekend! and there are at least five more pubs, that I know of, doing displays tonight! it makes you wonder where all the fireworks come from!
Anyway I'm now going to have a play myself to see what I can come up with.
John

Re: Guf Fawkes night

John thanks for the photos.

I thought one of them looked like a flower so...Some manipulation later here's my version.

Re: Guy Fawkes night

OH GOD I wish I had checked the spelling on the title before I posted this thread, every time I post I need to alter it
Swampy----I like it, the way it looks there it should be stuck in a cocktail...

Re: Guy Fawkes night

Wow, I really like everybody's interpretations of these great fireworks pictures.

Thanks, John, for providing them. Also, your interpretation is my favorite.

Here's my go. Increased color saturation, and used a bit of PaintEngine and Impressionist on it.

Enjoy!
Jeff
