    I think they came out alright..I just wish there was something else in the shots with them. I tried to get on the opposite side of the river so that I could get the cityscape and capital building in the shots, but I was not allowed.
    So here is what I did get:

    Chase, actually, I was trying to shoot in "bulb", but it I had a problem. I would set it to bulb, then switch over to remote so that I could use my remote and then bulb would not work. It was driving me crazy. I finally got so frustrated, because the show was about to start, that I set to 5 second and waited and listened for the boom. I had the aperture set at f/11, camera focused to infinity, using my 50mm 1.8D AF lens.
    I wonder if anyone knows why I was having trouble being able to shoot with the bulb exposure? I have been able to shoot in "bulb" with my remote before, but last night I just couldn't. Maybe I needed to let some light into the lens? I think that maybe have been the problem..I hope to get it figured out before I get to Disney next week, because last night was my practice to see if I could do it for my Disney photos! :D

    These were in DC? I was at the fireworks in Fairfax.

    These came out nicely. I'll have to get mine up soon (although the forum seems flooded with fireworks).
