This was my first time trying to get firework pictures, and was lucky enough to get a thunderstorm going on behind where they were setting off the display. This is a cropped version of the original (which I am VERY proud of), but hopefully enough of the detail is still present for you to get the idea. 8 second exposure with my DX6490, I LOVE my camera!!! Let me know what you think...

All together I had four pics with both fireworks and lightning, and one additional of just lightning. Prettylucky for a first time outhuh?

Great shot, DaveN! Talk about being in the right spot at the right moment - both natural and man-made fireworks in the same shot!

Here is another. It just boiled down to a REALLY lucky situation of being in the right place at the right time. I have to keep looking at these to remind myself of how lucky I actually got!!! I'm very new to photography (about10 months now) but wanted to catch lightning with a camera my whole life.



Anyway, thanks for all the great comments. Feedback is more valuable to me sometimes than the actual shot, and I appreciate ALL I get.
