You must know by now how much fun I have with my little camera, and how forgiving it is with my efforts. I am loathed to criticize it - it feels like gossiping about a close friend. However, if I do have one little niggle about it, it is in trying to capture fireworks. I set it to `fireworks` mode, because I assume that the good folk at Kodak know a lot more about the camera`s capabilities than me, and then the fun starts.
Click, I take the first shot, miss the firework completely, because it takes me a little while to allow for the slight delay between click and capture, and then have to wait no less than ten seconds, while the camera processes the shot, before I can try again. By the time I have finally got into the swing of clicking a split second before I think the firework will burst, we are already halfway through the display. The processing time severely restricts the number of shots I can take, and I am usually shivering, too, so I am pretty pleased if I get any shots which I like.
I`m going to put up a few which I do like. I hold my hand up and admit I am green with envy at some of the truly wonderful, detailed firework photographs I have seen on here. Beautifully framed with landscape, buildings and fireworks all combining to make stunning composition, and elegant photographs. Well, mine are not like that at all, but I do like the abstract quality of them, and I hope you do too. (:o)
