Excellent shot. Perfect timing.
Nice but if you use 'bulb' setting you will get a brighter array with more sparkling shown. The 1/125sec has minimised it.
If you wanted to capture the internals of a firework explosion pattern, you have done very well, as most people shoot for trails of colour. It's almost abstract.
Using a high ISO has made your shutter speed very short, so luck has a large part here, unless you were relying on your reaction time. Conventionally, using a low ISO for max quality and a long shutter speed on a tripod to record trails of several air bursts would yield more predictable results (though perhaps it's like the argument for and against flowing water, a matter of taste).
Cheers for the comments guys,
I did try some shots on longer exposures but i was hand holding as i had my young son and daughter were with me, setting a tripod up just wasn't practical so they didn't really come out, hence for the short shutter speed.
It was definently more luck than judgement to catch this one as it burst.
Firework shots are not easy, and you have done well with this.
