This is very good, but wonder why you had the ISO at 1600? Reading books on firework stuff, I thought 100 was the norm.

Nice shot anyhow.

Thanks for all the kind comments.

Teresa,
i chose ISO1600 as it was dark and I thought a fast ISO was the way to capture as much of the colour as possible.

Great capture, but I cant work out why it seems to be going away from you and not towards you. All the same looks fantastic.
