    We went to "Riverfest" this weekend, which is some huge gathering on the Ohio river where Ohio and Kentucky compete in a fireworks show...supposedly its the largest fireworks show in the United States (for labor day). Anyway, it was truly amazing, except dealing with the 500,000 people that were there (seriously). I managed to get quite a few pictures, dispite being covered with ash and debris. Here are a few of my favorites. Feel free to critique these, this was basically my first time taking pictures of real fireworks. I used apertures of about f11 - f16, and shutter speeds of around 4-6 sec. ISO 200 i think. Canon 10D and Canon 24-85 EF USM 3.5-4.5 on my Bogen tripod :)

    Terrific fireworks shots. The 6th picture with the bridge is outstanding, really sets it apart.
