    It took a few hundred pictures last night at the Sparks in the Park fireworks display.
    I haven't look all all of them yet, but here are a couple that I like so far.




    All with a D70
    10 second exposure, F20
    First 2 with a Sigma 24-70
    Last one with with a Tokina 12-24

    All three are beautiful! I can't wait to see more of them.

    Can you post a 100% crop? I am curious to the amount of noise you are getting, I tend to get A LOT of noise in the sky when I shoot anything at night.

    Thanks for adding the shooting info, I am going to attempt to shoot some fireworks this week. This will give me a decent starting point.

    Re: wow

    Joe .. what ISO are you set at for night pics? I use ISO 200 with minimal noise in 10-20 second exposures.

    For fireworks, I stop down to f22 or so, 10-20 second exposures, and ISO 200 with good results.

    Have fun with it :D
