Around 20-50mm depending what the composition calls for. I don't take closeup photos of fireworks. I find them dull and boring. If I can't get a background landscape, river, cityscape or something in the shot I don't bother unpacking the tripod.

Oh and it's much easier to frame a firework at 18mm than 300mm :p

I went a slightly different route for my first fireworks shoot.

The card is a good idea, but I didn't know about it when I took this pic. 30 second exposure, f/11, manual focus to infinity.

I read in a magazine that fireworks shots are cooler vertical (gives height), let the fireworks go a little out of the frame (gives the impression of a larger display), with a neat building or landmark of sorts. This chapel is very recognizable around Bolivar..and the stained glass lit up nice with the fireworks glow...

Not saying it's perfect, but I just wanted to throw in something a little different. My intent here was to capture the atmosphere of the event, not necessarily the fireworks.
