Brisbane Festival City of Lights

Every year during the month of September, Brisbane hosts a 3 week long arts festival - aptly called the Brisbane Festival. From 1996-2008 the festival was held biennially and in 2009 it was decided to hold the festival annually.
During the second week, I drove into the city to meet a fellow Instagrammer & photographer who gave me a lesson on Long Exposure night shooting in full Manual mode.
It was an amazing and wonderful experience photographing the "Santos City of Lights" show (2 shows each week night and 3 on weekends). The next week, I followed this up by taking my youngest daughter out a couple of days later to teach her my newly acquired skill.

Here are some of my favourite shots from the 2 nights (4 shows).

You learned something new, had fun and achieved amazing success with those photos. They are so sharp and so colourful! How nice of your photographer friend to coach you, but I'm betting s/he was impressed with his/her student as well :)

Beautiful night shots with amazing clarity.

I had absolutely no idea that Brisbane was so fabulous at night. Your photos really are quite amazing. The only other city I've seen which matches your images is Hong Kong.
