Many thanks for the good feedback everybody. First time I've ever taken fireworks, and if David (deviant) hadn't told me about them I would have missed the whole event.

I followed my usual routine. Set a likely aperture and varied shutter speed as I took test shots until I was happy with the exposure for the cathedral. When the fireworks started I checked what I was getting and found it was acceptable. Can't be more specific because it was too dark to read the settings and after I've loaded the images into Photoshop I lose the technical details. At a guess, this was probably about 5.6 at quarter of a second. Hand held.

Hey Eric more clicks than me! Doh! I shall have to commit honorable suicide by swollowing my tripod!

Like the exposure on your building better than mine I think. And the fact it has more detail of the Cathedral

Extraordinary shot, Eric. Quite marvellous positioning and timing. The firework capture is impressive enough but the church looks marvellously lit up as well. Quality work Smile

Thanks Malcolm. Yes, I took over 150 shots during the display and I've got about 10 that I'd be bothered with, this is probably the best of the lot, I think. Glad you like it.

Oh, by the way, Jan, this was a firework display to celebrate a hundred years since the laying of the first stone of Liverpool's Anglican Cathedral, which took 70 years to build.
