More Fireworks shots
Posted By: Bobr99, 07-06-2010, 08:03 PM

Here are some fireworks shots from this past weekend. I got there late so I didn't have a great view. I set up across the street so there are some power lines in the shots.

First time shooting fireworks. I think they came out pretty good.

K20D, Vivitar 70-200mm, ISO 100, F11, SS around 3 Sec.

Thanks for looking, any CC welcome!!!

That last shot is really nice, but why the power lines?

The 5th and the last are very good, but next time choose an other shooting location (without power lines).

Power lines are not good, but the last two have amazing colours, excellent shots if you look past the power lines!
