My first time taking photos of fireworks and i am quite pleased with the results. I shot using bulb mode and used trial and error to get the exposure right it was aroung 30 seconds at f5.6

Let me know what you think and what i can improve on next time.

Thanks Andrew

Very nice shot, good foreground interest.

I have found that by using some black card to place in front of the lens inbetween explosions, means I can capture muliple firewoks in one shot, without the risk of over exposing the image.
Sometimes I can leave the shutter open for up to 2 mins, just removing the card from in front of the lens for a few seconds at a time.
I don't know if this may be of interest to you for next time.
