Photo of the Week - Illuminations Setting #2

Last week I showed a photo of illuminations that was taken with a Landscape setting.  This week is another photo of Illuminations but taken with a Fireworks setting.  The big difference between the two settings is the shutter speed. When you use the Landscape setting the shutter speed is fairly fast so you get a real snapshot of what is happening.  When you use the Fireworks setting you get streaks of light.  This is due to a longer shutter speed.  Both can be very impressive but Fireworks is much harder to pull off.  With the longer shutter speed you need a flat surface or a tripod to get decent results.

In this photo a railing was used. A tripod would have given better results but one was not available.

This photo was taken with this camera:
