That's good for a first try, i bet you're pleased with that. Pity the tree crept in a bit though. I'll have to wait till November to have a go at that. :-)

We planned on going to the fireworks on Saturday but didn't get out the door until 45 minutes before they would start. The town that was putting on the show was a good 20 minutes away and we did not even know where they were going to be displayed. Got there, found a bunch of cars and found a parking spot just as the first one was shot off. I got setup very quickly and composed the shots and started to learn what made a good fireworks picture. This was as close as I think we could have gotten to them before the police would have wrestled us to the ground.

that is beautiful...you might have wanted to back up a little more( more wide angle, no zoom) so that you have the full firework in it...

i love the tree....just great gj
