No I didn't go into Sydney, struggle with the crowds and find a good position somewhere around the
harbour. I actually shot these midnight firework pictures from Channel 9's television broadcast.
It was an interesting experiment. I shot handheld at 3200 ISO. The set is HD but the images were
fairly muzzy, nonetheless, once captured. They don't look TERRIBLY bad once reduced for inclusion
in this composite picture, however. While pyrotechnics were launched up and down the harbour, most
of this action centres around the "coat hanger" (i.e. Sydney Harbour Bridge)
Incidentally I don't REALLY know how accurate the colour in this imgaes is but I didn't TOUCH the
saturation slider or any white balance controls. These are the colours direct from the camera.
