Great shots, I love the last one so you can see atmosphere of the evening. My shots were in a small town buy the water so I couldn't shoot the area in my shots. I posted my shots in the other forum so I could post larger shots. I got a 130 shots total. lol

Good job! I took my first crack at it yesterday. What settings did you run with? I started at f/11 but ended up going with f/5.6 and f/8 at ISO100/140 in bulb mode so I could get more of the surrounding environment into the shots.

Good effort.
Last one gives perspective but the bridge is blurry (not using a steady tripod?).

Thank you for commenting!

I used the shutter priority mode, with 2.5 seconds and ISO 200 and let the camera calculate the F stop for most of the shots. As the fireworks progressed, reduced the time!!

The damn remote did not work for the shot so had to take the shot manually.

Great shots Suresh. The 3rd is my favorite because of the added structure int the background.

Nice work and the last shot is my favorite of the bunch. Wish we didn't have to wait once a year to shoot fire works. ;-)

All nice shots. The really dark background combined with a really simple white border really sets it off. (no pun intended) Every year 2 of my neighbors kill about $2000 worth of fireworks. This year I figure to get some really great shots. Neither neighbor did any at all. Arrrghh

All of them are very nice shots but I like the third one best for its simplicity.

I think I'll just come up your way and shoot. And I corrected my post it was 2 not 22. I have got to start drinking again.
