      very nice technique. Is this one exposure or did you merge in PS?

      Seen next to a fellow photo of Upstate New York (location required). (?)

      OK, what's the secret to good firework pictures.? I need to learn before Thursday night.

      I use a tripod, remote shutter release, full manual on the camera - time exposure of 1 - 5 seconds, just by counting it off, manual focus at infinity, fairly slow ISO speed [100 or 200 max], a relativly wide open apature [5.6], and a huge number of pictures and lot's of luck.
      This year I am going to try a smaller apature, like F8
