Well I managed to take a bunch of photos, but about half were out of focus, I got there late and didnt really have anything to manually focus on. Any tips for where to focus on for next time?


Thanks Winky

I used AI-servo, took 3 pics of fireworks going off then used that as the main reference and set the lens to manual.

How do I fix the colour profiles on my MBP? Photos opened using Photoshop, Preview.app, Safari etc look ok but when uploaded to Flickr and viewed on Firefox, the photos look pretty washed out. Please check out the two photos in both Firefox and Safari and let me know.

Here is what I have, I only had my 50mm at the time, no tripod, no release cable and I forgot that the aperture was wide open :lol: in other words, I did everything wrong.

The over saturated;

Could be Flickr applied a different colorspace after you uploaded. I don't use Flickr but I know Firefox allows you to set a colorspace when viewing photos.

IE users are restricted to just sRGB while Firefox lets you choose AdobeRGB, sRGB, etc.

Do you know what you shot your photos in? Can Mac users tell me if Safari uses AdobeRGB or sRGB?
