Bokeh_fireworks

This style of shooting should ideally be done with a f/1.4 or f/1.8 piece of glass but I'm just exploring this style with my bridge camera. I had planned to take the classic long exposure shot but my tripod broke this morning [3yr old gorilla pod] and stubbornly I decided I still wanted a fireworks photo. So to make up for no tripod I figured I'd take a 1.3s exposure handheld shot - out of focus - and see what happens. Voila! and with a bit of editing in lightroom this is the result :)
