Those are beautiful! I just bought a Nikon Coolpix p100, is there any trick to get night fireworks shots like that?

Not really. If I had to give any advice at all, I would have to say timing is everything. I took around 200 shots that night and not even have of them looked good. I used the fireworks and auto to get these.

The auto setting seems to work great! So I guess it must be pretty important to be at a GREAT fireworks show. Do you happen to remember approximately how long the auto fireworks setting left the shutter open, and what ISO it used?

The first photo shown; exposure time 1/2 sec and ISO was 400. But all of them were different and with no tri-pod, non stop clicking.
