What settings did you use for the fireworks?Fireworks were set for an exposure time of about 2 seconds. I think I let the camera chose it's own exposure settings other than the time. The fireworks shots were very difficult to take, as my camera does not allow me to disable auto-focus. So, for every shot, the camera would try to re-focus on the night sky. Also, digital cameras have a bit of delay between when when you push the button and when the exposure happens...so you have to hit the button before the flare is launched!The delay is helpful, however, so that you can get your hand off the camera before the exposure starts. (My camera doesn't have a remote shutter) Any camera shake on a long exposure shows up a zig-zag fireworks streamers!There are four big 'fireworks competitions' in my city every summer, over the course of 2 weeks. We went down to 2 of the shows and shot as many pics as we could over the 20 minute presentation. We took more than 200 shots over the 2 nights, and about 20 of them turned out. Snie
