Outstanding, Pboerger!
since there is no EXIF, would you mind sharing?

Hey Ira, good to see your back!

All shots are very good! I didn't bother this year, just wasn't interested in it. But looking at these, I regret not making the effort.

Shooting fireworks is quite fun. For me, it makes the fireworks worth going to.

This is from my first fireworks attempt with the *istDL about 4 years ago. I haven't been able to catch it again the same with the K20D... Just haven't had the same good chances as that time. I like this one though, it was a firework with parts that would zip all over the places as you can see from the trails.
