The International Fireworks Festival is an annual event held in Vietnam.
This year, 5 countries contested, UK, Korea, Vietnam, China and Italy.
I was fortunate enough to get a view, as all hotels with rooms facing the river was sold out, as was all the viewing galleries.
My guide arrange for me and my friends to go on a fishing boat with a few other families to watch the show.
As the boat was constantly rocking and swaying about throughout the show, I had to use a relative fast shutter speed and a wide-angle lense (fisheye in this case), resulting in smaller fireworks. Nonetheless, it was an experience, and it went quite well for my first firework shoot!
