This is my first time shooting fireworks. I ask for best settings here last week and I think, with your help, it turned out great. I took 257 shots and had 178 keepers. Fireworks are all so beautiful I couldn't make up my mind which ones to post, but here are a few. Coments welcome. No PSP except for croping and resize.

Thanks for looking, Don

Nice job!

The lines in pic #4 look so straight it almost looks like someone drew it. I missed our local fireworks display, so thanks for sharing yours!

Good job d-sr. How long of an exposure did you use?

Thanks for the coments, RedStickMan & Narcis Oblivion.

I used 2 sec. exp. at F8 and manual focus. I think I'll try 3 Sec next time. Trying to time when they would go off was hard and some shots just got the start of the explosion. They are still neat though. I think I posted 2 or 3 that had just started when the 2 sec. ran out.

d-sr, I'm curious did you use a tripod at all? Those shots look too sharp to be handheld at 2 sec shutter..... even with OIS.Great job though. :-)
