Finally got a chance to try shooting fireworks during a summer celebration my town did this evening. Read a lot of tips and had some trees in the foreground. Unfortunately, they changed their launch point from the last time I saw them and they didn't go up as high as they used to. Used my 70-200, and my remote. D300, Manual focus set to Infinity, AutoWB (prob should have used Tungsten), ISO 200, f11. Question....do you sharpen your shots in post? Sometimes when I sharpened, I seemed to lose color, i.e. the white portions got sharper and more pronounced and obscured the colors. Here's an example. Unsharpened: Sharpened (70%, Radius 1 Adjust Sharpness in PSE6), see how much blue is lost. 1. All these are sharpened. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9.
