I do like this image and for a first attempt it is grand, but it appears oversaturated in places and if this is the intent then my apologies , but a tweak of the levels may help tone it down a wee bit, as I say though a grand 1st attempt and certainly a vibrant image thanks for sharing it Colin

Excellent first attempt.

Fireworks are fairly tricky. One ancient technique (which may still be used) was to cover your camera lens with a piece of black card and wait for the fireworks to explode then remove the card, but quicky put it back when the sky is empty again. This is useful for local/non professional displays where the sky is rarely filled with fireworks. This is a tricky technique to get right as you need to count the exposure in your head rather than set it in the camera.

E.g. Set the camera to 30 seconds (although the total exposure will be 10 seconds (at say F16/ISO 100)) and once you have exposed the camera to a 10 second exposure, keep the card on the camera until the 30 seconds have elapsed. It sounds complicated but can be easily perfected with a little practice. A 30 second exposure almost definitely burn out all your highlights, so the card is essential.

Andrew.
