Fireworks, or the Big Bang Theory

from small town, USA.
20D images taken by Tara, Oliver's GF. I was using the 5D. Wider angle the better, but we had to watch for stray light posts and people. Starting settings: 100iso (the lowest on the 20D) at f/11-16, Bulb with the exposure starting at 1 second, longer if we got into the display in which case they were blown out. Shot raw, so minor levels adjustment and if there was a cool one that could be brought back from being blown, it helps. Gallery ordered in sequence of time taken, surprised there were so few real duplicates as we were side by side, taking about the shots.
