    Fantastic. These are great and all the fireworks I seen this year (the gunfire is just about every night though). Incredible shots, great composition and colors. Thanks for the show!!

    thanks guys, you rock.

    chicago - i set the focus to infinity, the iso at 100, the shutter speed to "bulb", and the aperture to f9 and just sat back with a cable release and tried to capture a few bursts, anywhere from 1-10 seconds, most at about 2 seconds.

    "bulb" or "b" is typically used for shutter speeds greater than 30" or whatever your camera's longest shutter speed is, but it basically gives you control over how long you want the shutter to be open... typically used with a tripod and cable release. the term "bulb" comes from old school cameras that used an air-filled bulb that photographers would squeeze to open the shutter and release to close the shutter. that's my understanding anyway...

    where were they comming from, i feel like i'm missing some context... they look great and i like the reflection but it feels like they're just comming out of nowhere and i dont know if i like that or not

    Great work. Last one is my favorite as well. One the ones with no reflection I think you could've zoomed in more and filled the frame with the burst.
