Default Rockets & Sparklers

Captured these on the 4th . K20D & DA*16-50 mm.

It wasn't quite dark yet, hence the blue sky!



Light painting with sparklers.

Two great shots. The rocket shot is very unusual and a wonderful picture. The sparkler shot is excellent as well with little to no motion blur. Nicely done!

Thanks Lou. I used the 2nd curtain sync flash on my Sigma 500DG Super for the sparklers and it seemed to work very well. I've been experimenting with different flash techniques recently and this one was a good result.

Looks like your experiment was an unqualified success - very nice clear sharp, and well composed images!
