1. Sunset over the Potomac as the first fireworks go up on a neighboring pier. This shot has been saturated. 35 mm, ISO 100, 7.1, 1 second shutter


2. 32.5 mm, ISO 100, 5.6, 4 second shutter.


3. 23.1 mm, ISO 100, 7.1, 13 second shutter. Some saturation.


4. 23.1 mm, ISO 100, 8.0, 13 second shutter.


5. 23.1 mm, ISO 100, 7.1, 13 second shutter.


This was my first attempt at fireworks. It was purely trial and error, but overall, I am pretty pleased with some of the results.

Thanks Jim! I think the combo of the sunset & the fireworks over the water turned out pretty well

I shot some images of several Osprey along the river too, that I was pretty excited to share...until I saw your amazing shots! I'll still post some of the shots later, but your shots are magnificent!
