oops, I've literally just uploaded that shot to my photo a day website in the last 2 mins and realised in wasn't an iPhone shot, I was hoping i could creep back and amend this post before anyone noticed!

(I'm redoing my photo-a-day website and reloading all the photos and just up until July right now, this was taken in July)

I have 8 fireworks photos from that night on my iPhone, (forgot I took some on the DSLR as well) Having looked at them now they're actually pretty ****.

Sorry!
No worries - like to keep peeps on their toes!

Yeah, funny though, when I saw the shot I instantly remembered taking photos of the fireworks on the phone and thinking, blimey that's a good shot for the phone, must put it in this thread. It was only a 5 minute firework display after my daughters summer concert. I realised when I was typing out the exif data for the website.

yeah, I must have been half asleep if I thought a phone could take a shot like that in the dark.

Taken in 2008 with my Fujifilm S2 pro. Ok, not my worst kit but at the time I accidently wacked it against a tree While I was at Bowood and the thing stopped working. I then got a little mad with it and hit it again and it started working again! This was the next pic I took with it.

Somehow I just knew that wasn't going to be a cheap snap. Super one, David!

Four pics taken of the Devils points with my old Digital Ixus V compact back in 2005. Pretty sure they were all taken in auto mode.

I haven't had my camera long so I only really can put up pictures when I had my kit lens, this is from a month after getting my camera. I still like this picture and I was dead happy back then ha ha

Just discovered this one in amongst some snaps from 2005 taken on a Nikon Coolpix 3.2 megapixel compact... not a great camera, but still I like this image a lot. (admittedly tweaked in LR tonight!!)
