Thanks.

I used a window-pod for all photos except the last one which I used a tripod. They are from two different fireworks shows.

I used shutter speeds from 1 to 8 seconds, but used 2 second exposures the most often. The exposure depends on the speed of the individual fireworks and what effects you want to get.

I let the camera set the aperture on the first few, but then set the aperture at f/7.2 for the latter pics, this ensured a more 'in-focus' photograph.
