Some obligatory fireworks photos
Lens: Sigma 17-70mm Camera: K20D Photo Location: Broomfield, CO ISO: 100 Shutter Speed: 3s

Most cities along the Front Range, for very good reasons, cancelled their fireworks this year. Broomfield and a few other places had safe enough places to shoot them off and did so. These were taken from about 1/2 mile away with apertures ranging from f/4.5 to f/8. The images were cropped and the black point was adjusted in Aperture 3.3.

Nothing wrong with a little obligatory firework display. The second image is really really nice. Love the colors.
