Took this picture on July 4th. What bugs me is that the upper portion of the photo seems sharp and in focus, but the bottom half ( particularly the bottom fireworks) appear blurry and weird. It can't be camera shake since part of the photo appears fine, could it have been the wind?

I'm just a beginner, so I'm not even going try to speculate on the blur.

Just wanted to say tho that I absolutely LOVE the clock! Would have really been (and still is!) a beautiful photo! The flag at the top really of the clock is fitting with the fireworks too!

My best guess is that with a 6 second shutter speed the lower fireworks were smaller and faster so they gave you a blurry picture. Also with such a long exposure I am wondering if another round of fireworks started to go off right at the end of your exposure. I could be wrong, wouldn't be the first time, but that is my best guess.

That's not the Farmer's Market Tower at Pier 1 San Francisco?

With a 6 second exposure, maybe you experienced some shake in the first 3 or last 3 seconds of the exposure?
