I think you did good shooting fireworks for the first time. Did you have a tripod or want to handhold? I noted ISO 1600 and a tripod might have given you ability to make longer exposures, but 1600 looks good on that camera.

Usually, on fireworks, you're tempted to use a high ISO, but stay away from that. Using a high ISO with a slow shutter speed gets you areas that are blown out. What you want when shooting fireworks is the fireworks travelling through the air - a lower ISO, and a long(ish) shutter speed. Use a lower ISO, like 200, and a shutter speed of 3-5 seconds. Adjust after you see a pic in the viewfinder. Actually, my old camera (Nikon 8800) had a fire works setting which worked beautifully.

Descent first effort. Fireworks are a hit and miss affair. The most important aspect of shooting fireworks is a steady tripod. And, I even use a remote control for my camera (Nikon D80) to lessen the possible shake even more.
