Default Fireworks

Not quite sure where to put this series ................ went to the international fireworks competition at St Sebastian last week and "had a go"!! Got there just as the show started and was rushing to set up and start snapping. Had no idea on what settings to use - so all comments, advice and help will be appreciated.

Nicely done Diane, never have tried fireworks myself. Looks like you had a great place to view the show.

Hi JJ, thanks for having a look. It was a great show. There is a different competitor every night and the contest takes place over a week long period. Each night you see the display of one of the world's best pyro-technicians for free - well cool.

Wow. Awesome set especially the first. I was taking pictures of fireworks recently, too, at DisneyWorld and noticed that as the show progressed, the smoke kind of obscured my shots. So I think you did a great job with the fourth.

Hi VV - thanks for the feedback, really is appreciated. The 1st photo in the set was the very first shot that I took that night, so I'm pleased you liked it. What settings were you using at Disney World?? Would love to see some of your shots

very nice job Dyane

you did well, even not knowing how to start

Fireworks is that kind of subject that I believe there are not standard formula. All fireworks are very different... depending on framing, amount of fire in the air, light polution, clouds... lots of things that can change the amount of light that reach the sensor.

So I think you got the right decision... started on a priority program and let the camera do the math

#1 is indeed fantastic

Congratulations
