Hi All - another Monday at work bites the dust - only two more before half-term (not that I'm counting, obviously!) Wink

Anyway, here's another Southport Musical Fireworks Championship image, but from Sunday night this time.

MrS showed me a new (to me) technique which means you get a long exposure without losing detail in the fireworks - I won't mention my faux pas when I first tried it, but you can judge for yourself if it has worked here Smile

I exposed early whilst one explosion was dissipating and the for the main burst - hence the "sprinkles" They look better LARGE, BTW! Wink

Thanks as always for your time, I really do appreciate it - have a great evening - off to work out what to do with spinach! Grin

Cheers!

Beautifully crisp clean image, sometimes difficult to get with fireworks.
