    Re: Firework photos

    Hmm, I'm not getting the photos. Are they working for anyone else?

    Re: Firework photos

    Weird - there were two photo links in Greg's post about two hours ago. Now those links are gone.

    Maybe he's changing the links?

    Basil - here's the content of the BCF automated "new thread" email when Greg first posted:

    * * * * *

    There is a country club about 10 blocks from me that puts on a show.

    [IMG]https://www.britishcarforum.com/bcf/...5&d=1562427096[/IMG]

    [IMG]https://www.britishcarforum.com/bcf/...6&d=1562427096[/IMG]

    [IMG]https://www.britishcarforum.com/bcf/...7&d=1562427096[/IMG]

    [IMG]https://www.britishcarforum.com/bcf/...4&d=1562427096[/IMG]

    * * * * *

    Note that the above is the email notice. But the three links in the email notice aren't in Greg's #1 post above.

    That is weird. I see them as well. I uploaded them to the photography section of the members groups on this forum. Maybe that's why only Basil and I can see them? I'll reload them directly into this thread to see if that fixes things.

    Hi Tom, when you click on the links in your email, do you see the pictures? I do.

    Re: Firework photos

    The links in Tom's post (which are the same ones I got before) don't work for me, either in his post or from the notification I got before.

    But Greg's new links do work, so I'm happy. Thanks Greg! Nice photography, BTW.

    a-HA! I'm betting that at first, you could only see the photos if you were in the Photography group.

    Now that's you've uploaded them directly into this thread, I can see them. No more "invalid attachment" message.

    Oh what tangled webs we weave, when we do practice to ... link to members-only areas!

    I have never been able to capture fireworks photos like yours Greg. Great job.

    Re: Firework photos

    Thanks everyone. Bayless, these were 15 second exposures. I use a black card to cover the lens in between explosions to keep the background from overexposing. When I hear the mortars pop, I wait a second, then uncover the lens. Cover and repeat. I can do that a couple times per exposure depending on how many fireworks get launched.

    Re: Firework photos

    Well Greg, I gues that explains why I can't get photos like that. I am a much simpler photographer than that.
