Anyone get any really good fireworks shots this July 4th?

We didn't bother going to any shows, since it was raining most of the evening
here, so I missed out this year.

If you have some, show us!

Thanks!

I don't know about really good shots, tonight was the first time I tried shooting fireworks, and I was setting them off. I'm sure others will have better shots, but I'm fairly happy with this attempt in our front yard.

D80, ISO 100, 4.0 sec, f/3.5, 18mm

Double post ok?

You could consider this a double post and it really doesnt have any of the aboved mentioned places obviously invovled. But if the mods feel the need these can be removed. I originally posted these over in the night/IR thread.

Got these tonight, 4th of July 2008, from Clearfield HS, Utah .

Nice shots Tim, I was at friends house so I had a cheap tripod handy, I was far away, to lazy to walk. I had to crop a lot on these shots. Excuses :)

3 and 4 are my favorites, Id be proud to call them my own.

Thanks for the comments on mine. On my last 2, I think they boarder on overexposed and cluttered, but it is the nature of the beast of shooting fireworks is that you get what you get. No do overs. Each shutter click will be unquie and you can only move as fast as your camera.

I agree... very nice shots all around. I especially like the framing of the fireworks over the river.

Here is one from late last night/early this morning... taken in my buddies front yard.

(I missed the big show on Ft. Hood because I was working) :mad:

First time shooting fireworks too. Got there way too late and didn't have time/space to set up my tripod






I tried to make some sort of collage but after 30 minutes I had absolutely no idea what I was doing:

I had the same trouble as Commons, got there late, no place to really set up, and then I ended up with a dead tree in the middle of them all! I'm too embarrassed to post one on the cafe, so ya'll just go look at my flickr site. Sorry, it was my first time to try fireworks too!
