...Right in my cul-de-sac! :biggrin:

The neighbors like to put on a show for the fourth, so I did my part to capture the excitement for them...

Enjoy.

(All taken with a D3 at ISO200, 14-24 lens, ~25sec exposures at f/8 - f/11).

Sean,

Greetings... Thanks for posting the fireworks! Our area is experiencing wildfires, so fireworks were banned... so seeing your photos is the closest I've been to seeing fireworks this year.

Great detail on the small sparks. Cool. Dude.

Cheers,

Sean,

What focal length/s were these shot at? The houses seem rather distorted on my screen. Lens tilt?

Thanks Yamo. I'll post a crop of some of the actual explosions to show just how much detail was captured. The D3 did a great job...

Yes, the houses are very distorted--but they were at the edge of the frame at 15-16mm on the 14-24 (shot mostly at f/8 to get a long enough exposure for the fireworks).

Nice shots! What lens and what shutter speed were you using. I guess what ISO, too?

Thanks Bob. I used the Nikon 14-24 f/2.8 on the D3, set to Manual exposure mode. I typically had a 20 - 30 second exposure dialed in at ISO200.
