I should probably tell you that Mercun means Fireworks in Malay. It's illegal in our country but people like them so it still exists. On the Eve of Eid (a.k.a. Hari Raya) the whole (extended) family goes out to watch the guys (the fathers, uncles, and boys) set off the fireworks. It was a loud, smoky night. And I got a couple of nice pictures. Though I had more video shots, it was easier.
I submitted two of the above pictures as separate, bigger deviations because they're nicer.
