Detroit-Windsor Firework Display

By mswiech
Last night we had the 53rd Annual Detroit-Windsor Fireworks show take place. Took the family out as I have been waiting to photograph some firework since I got my camera. The show was over 28 mins in length.

All are shot with a D3100 50mm f/1.8D in between F8-11 in Bulb mode on a Velbon Sherpa 200r tripod. Looking for your honest opinion on these.

Fireworks are not the easiest subject to get right, but you would appear to have done a sterling job here: very well done, Mike.

Thanks. All I had was my 50mm, so it was difficult in some of my shots as I was limited in the range. First time out, so I thought I did pretty well.

I find it a bit static , but how to solve it? I wonder if a much longer exposure continuing after the fireworks have died down would have shown some smoke or clouds lit by the moon (if there was one) as it seems a bit too harsh with the dead black background and the dead sharp fireworks. I's lacking a little romance , in fact it's too good and clinical, it has none of those accidents that happen with firework shots. I hope this helps.

This is a well executed technical image in difficult circumstances. pictorially, it is a pity there were not more varied fireworks in the image to give more variation in colour and structure. Rather out of your control.

There are others that I have. I will post them up for you to judge on and provide your C&C's.
