Lakewood, Colorado fireworks
Lens: Sigma 17-70 Camera: K10D Photo Location: Lakewood, Colorado ISO: 100 Shutter Speed: 2s Aperture: F9.5

I was fortunate to have several nights of fireworks so that I could do some experimenting. Using f/9.5 rather than f/8 resulted in far less fiddling in aperture. Using ISO 100 made it much easier to crop in on things. A good tripod is a must and a wireless remote is really nice too.

I like the first one a lot! The blue ones have such a nice colours, would work also w/o the upper part, just the three blues.
