Thank you PiO. It will be awhile till I get to write my TR since I am busy with basketball and work. Plus I have been sick the last few days.


Here are some pictures of Believe...In Holiday Magic fireworks with the trails.

Thank you PiO.

I was satisfy with the quality of using the Nikkor 35mm and the Neutral Density Lens. The only thing I wasn't too pleased was that I couldn't get all the fireworks in the picture since I was close. If I moved back more, I could get more in the picture. But there might be heads in the pictures. Overall I was pleased with the pictures.

Great pictures Bret.

I think that lens is a brilliant lens and you're doing wonders with it. But personally, I suspect that it is a tad tight for me. I'm mostly shooting at the 17mm end on my crop camera in the dark rides and using the ultra wide angle lens for my fireworks shots.

I think your comments were part of the reason why I didn't actually get a lens in this range when I was in the US.

Did you ever find out what they were filming?

Hope you are feeling better.

I just scrolled back and looked at your fireworks pictures again. So incredible! They deserved another shout-out in a second post. Thanks for sharing those.

Thank you Jenny. I'm glad that you are enjoying all my pictures from my recent trip to the DLR during the Holiday season.

The 35mm Nikkor lens is making a big difference in the picture quality than the other lens. After looking at all my pictures from this past trip as well as my WDW trip, the 35mm lens is great but I don't have much in the picture as the firework picture shows. I have been thinking about it this weekend about possibly getting a wide angle lens for my DSLR. Somewhere in the 10-20mm range is something that will be perfect for me so I can get a lot in the picture. I will talk to you about this later during the week about a possible lens that is wider. I do appreciate your tips and it helped me become a better photographer.

Thank you Deej. It almost did feel that day that it was about to snow.

The firework pictures turned out great and I was very pleased with them.

I still haven't figure out what they were shooting at BVS on Friday the 16th. I might need to look on the web and see what they were shooting that day. I know that the Radio Media's around Anaheim were set up at Hollywood Land just like they were at DL the last few years I have been there.

I do appreciate it Deej. The next time I watch the fireworks, I might have to move back in order to get everything in the pictures with the lens that I have. Maybe I might get another lens during my upcoming trip in January.
