These shots are a little out-of-date ... taken on Canada Day in Port Dalhousie on south shore of Lake Ontario.
Using Scott Kelby's guidelines - "The Digital Photography Book", set up on a tripod. Manual mode - 4 sec. f10 (S.K. recommends f11, but that's for an SLR; I find the small lens on the FZ50 loses definition at f11).
First shot, here, was to try to approximate hyperfocal distance and lock the focus.

After a few trial shots to get the framing about right - leaving room for some cropping in PP - took this series of keepers (as well as quite a few rejects).
Generally feel they are not too bad for a first attempt.
Forgot to use the remote shutter release - but OIS seems to have taken care of most of the camera shake. Will try to remember in future.
I woud really appreciate comments, advice and tips from those with fireworks experience to help me do better next time.
Thanks.

You won't be able to get advice from me, but I will say that you seem to have done quite well for any attempt, much less your first one.

It may be your first attempt but it sure looks like you knew what you were doing, very well done.
