After recently getting a DSLR I decided to take it to a local firework display. Only a few came out well but I'm quite happy with those that did. What I found was that the advice I'd read up on beforehand (specifically about setting the lens to focus on infinity) didn't seem to work. Maybe I was too close. Anyway, here are a couple that I feel work well.

I like the second photo. Maybe a longer shutter speed on a tripod will give better results? I dunno, I'm just a newbie myself. :?

I think the 2nd picture is much better balanced and has much better satuation...the first one seems almost over exposed.

Thanks for your comments guys. I also prefer the second shot. The fireworks in the first one took me by surprise because I was taking photos of airborne fireworks and the ground display suddenly happened right in front of me. I didn'thave time to change the settings, hence the over-exposure.
