These are very pretty. What kind of exposure time did you use?

Good attempt (haven't I seen no.1 already?). I wonder how you used tripod - I thought it would be difficult unless you knew where the firework was going to explode. It is for that reason I have long been longing to get to a high perch on a Diwali day with a tripod and aim roughly at places where more fireworks are lit, setting the camera on full wide angle and long exposure - but I have not been able to do that yet.

thanks saly and Raghu..for the comments..
Saly,
I have kept @ ISO 80, F8, Exp.Time 2 Sec...for all theses pictures..
Yes Raghu , you are right its quite difficult..unless its in Gujarat -Rajkot my city where people are crazy about the fireworks and you continuously hear the fireworks sound througout the diwali night..I just aim my camera in one direction by setting apparture on F8, and setting Exp.Time on 2 sec..and keep taking photos captured more then 70 pictures out of which 14-15 i kept..experimented with different settings but finally went for these settings.
is there any other way to take it more perfactly..? Please guide me so that i can improve..Thanks again friends..

I've read that to get truly great fireworks shots, you need a remote release shutter and a shutter speed of something like 5 to 10 seconds.

Although, I think your 3rd shot is really nice.
