    Well I was able to get off quite a few photos tonight thanks to the info and help of people on this board. I asked what to set the camera at and I think for my first time some turned out OK?

    Nikkon D40- 70/300 VR lense set at 130mm
    Tripod and remote used in Bulb mode.

    Comments? Suggestions?

  3. I haven't (yet) done wireworks myself so I have no idea of how difficult it is. But some of these are really nice and the last one looks best to me.
  4. I've found that the best fireworks pix are those with some foreground context.

    Move back/slip on a wide lens.

    re: color and exposure of these shots, just fine.

    I followed you here from the other thread Sal. You did real good for the first time, especially considering you were pressed for time. I hope I can do as good this coming 4th. I think I may try the hat trick that RickW suggested. My remote is in shipment as I type, I'll have to experiment with it before the big night.
