    Sould we make just one thread for everyone to post fireworks shots in?
    Or clutter up the board with them?
    Just a thought.

    It rained the whole freaking night here. So they canceled our fireworks show here in town. They're doing it tomorrow, so maybe I'll take the camera over with the tripod and try to get some good ones.

    Meanwhile, here's my contribution to the thread.

    Nothing special, I had my camera out for all of about 5 minutes. :)

    I just got home from the show here. It was awesome!
    One of the best fireworks displays I've ever seen.

    3 bands performing, lots of food, overall - a great time.

    I shot almost entirely on film tonight (only digital pictures I got were of the bands), so it'll be a while till I can post the results.

    We were way too close... They were right on top of us, lol. (We were close to see the stage, didn't feel like moving for the fireworks display).

    I didn't bring my tripod (left it in the truck...didn't want to lug it around all night), so I'll be interested to see my results, lol. I think I did pretty good though. I improvised.

    (Shot a whole roll of Portra 160VC just on fireworks...)

    Better too close than too far away - I'm going to need to crop out like 70% of my velvia shots D: but we'll see after I get it developed tomorrow.

    The fireworks in Washington DC were pretty decent. Death Star fireworks are very cool and DC always has a large and long display - went through 1 and a half rolls of Velvia and ran out :(

    The other night I decided to try a light writing pic. What can I say, my wife has some GREAT penmanship!

    Just came back .... I setup my gears on the tripod by the river with no person in front of me. I am all ready ... then it started to rain. So I just put the gears back to my backpack and walked back to my car. :( Better luck next year I guess.

    lucky... I think most of the smoke stayed near the ground and behind the school that shot them off.
