    Hi all!

    It was bonfire night yesterday in the UK so I thought I'd take the opportunity to take my first firework pictures. I'd appreciate any comments.

    Thanks!

    Thanks all, glad you like them :D

    ahelg, I tried around with a few different settings but f20, 2 secs seemed to give me the best results. I set the focus just short of infinity. Obviously used a tripod. I don't have a cable release, but I guess one would probably be useful.

    The biggest difficulty I had was avoiding the smoke from the fireworks. I stayed relatively close, which allowed me to shoot up and keep the smoke out of the frame.

    Ant, these were taken in Brockwell park.

    By the way, I've been having a loook around and this forum is great!
