The fireworks are well exposed and their bright colours are reflected nicely on the water, the boats add good foreground interest and we can see the bright lights of Hong Kong in the distance, I like this very much although there is a fair bit of noise in it which can be hard to avoid in night time images and I am not familiar with the software you have used so can't offer any suggestions there.

I am on a big learning curve with Darktable so any comments are very welcome

Full of colour and action this one Steve, but also as Peter says a lot of noise.
A commendable shot though, seeing as you were on a less than stable platform
Still like it though, good effort.
Not familiar with Darktable I'm afraid so can't offer any help there.
Is the horizon convex or just an optical illusion?
SteveT  [Jan 21, 2014 at 08:36 PM]
Yes the horizon is convex was waiting to see if any one spotted it , have straighten it until all the building are close to vertical .
Also found a group on Flicker on Darktabel with lots of good info so should help with my learning curve

Seems to work quite well and a pretty impressive display.
I have seen recommendations for camera settings as a long exposure if trying to take fireworks, I think perhaps two or three seconds. But a rock steady platform would be needed, so not always possible.
But even with the fast exposure you have captured the moment very well.

I'm a bit late here Steve and the guys have summed it up nicely. A (fire)cracking shot, <groan> well done!
