Nice shots. Do you mind telling the settings you used. I tried for the first time last night for some shots. Didn't come out how I was hopeing. I guess timing is everything as well. Knowing when to click the shutter. I used the Fireworks setting on my Nikon 8800. Maybe I should have tried the 'M' setting and wing it. Thanks and look forward to you post.

Thank you, and the settings i used are as follows

Aperture: f/16
Shutter Speed: Bulb mode used (i'll explain later)
ISO: 100
Cable Release used along with tripod and mirror lockup (using the hacked firmware for the canon digital rebel allowed mirror lockup)

I used a 28mm lens, so that no matter where the fireworks went, i had them in the frame somewhere and could crop later, since i have a 6.5 Megapixel resolution

the bulb setting is the most important. I would open the shutter as teh mortar would fire, that way i have the streak of it flying up in the air, and then close it after all of the fireworks exploded.

Hope this helps
