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.

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.

And yes you are right she is beautiful. and what is more interesting is her plays to the camera in the most amazing way. the best model I have ever had.

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.
