    not bad, but they are a little too busy for me... i would have prefered just a shot of one explosion or something... but overall not bad :)

    I know from experience how hard fireworks are. I shot them with my Canon TX and they came out good. I did the single shell pictuers and some of them look like big, colorful, sea urchins.

    I like it, but i think they're a bit overexposed. I think you lose a bit of the richness of the colors in the bright white centers and, as a result, it looks busy. Add some different shades and colors in there and i think they'd appear much less busy. But they're still great pictures.

    Thanks for your comments.
    Nytmair and GregF422; Yes you are right, they seems too busy and overexposed.

    Very nice! I think I prefer the first one, mainly because it's just a little simpler - shorter exposure?

    I had a go at firework photos earlier this year:

    I found it difficult to know where to point the camera to make sure I got everything in frame - not knowing where the next firework was going to be or what type made it difficult!
