Fireworks

Finale. All in all, I can't complain about the fireworks or my pictures of them. The "secret": Tripod+cable shutter release, manual focus (to infinity), ISO 100, f16, and "bulb" setting that allowed me to hold the shutter open as long as I wanted. A hunk of black cardboard to cover the lens for long shots. Adobe Lightroom for toning and noise reduction.
