Capturing fireworks on film or digitally is difficult. The image is great and you made good use of a long shutter speed and small aperture opening. This image is as good as any professionally shot display of fireworks.

Well Done, Well Done,

Back about 20 years ago I shot a catalog for a fireworks retailer here in Montana. Of course I was shooting film at that time (vpsIII in an RB67) but this should carry over into digital. Ap set at f16 or 22 (depending on ambient light), ISO set at 100, shutter on bulb, then just have camera on tripod and let the fireworks record themselves. With this in mind the fireworks will "add up" in the shot. This is helpful if you want to make a small show look like a huge one. TDT
