Great work, very vivid colours and a true "black" sky. Excellent!

Excellent shots, I like the framing and the isolation of just the essential!

Thanks! I try to crop everything not necessary... Fireworks are not always the same size...

How do you get fireworks to look like this, miss alexx? These are exceptionally well done.

Thanks for your comment. I actually use a tripod and a remote. Before the show starts, I focus on the bridge. I use at least f8 and set for 1s. The exposure time may vary between 1s and 1.6s. Finally, I edit every photo in photoshop elements. I raise the blacks, the contrast and a bit of saturation.

I don't think this is the perfect settings so next time I'll have a couple of things to modify.
