Neusser Schützenfest 2014

The largest event in our city, with a lot of traditions, are the „Schützenfest“.
Starting with the the funfair on friday, the Fackelzug/light parade on Saturday, the kings parade at Sunday, and ending Tuesday with the firework.
This year I try to photograph a bit different, not only the music corps and hench men in their parades.
At the opening fire, canon shoot, I did choose for a short shutter time. 2 pictures gave me the wanted effect.

In the evening hours, the darkness, I fully forgot to choose a longer exposure, what gave the pictures a too dark flare.
With still objects, however, it did work correctly
