Fireworks reflected       in a puddle

The Old Mill Hotel, over the River Avon in Wiltshire

Above left, Fireworks reflected in a puddle, November 2007. In my haste to get out I forgot the tripod... so decided to take weird shots instead. Exposure was set to B, and I used f/5.6, keeping the shutter open for a count of three seconds, hand held.

Above right, an act of hope over experience! Hand held for a count of five seconds, aperture wide open, the sole source of illumination being the sparklers. Amazingly, this is pretty sharp, much more than I had any right to expect. The rangefinder was easier to use under these conditions than I imagined.
