@jamesstaddon Oh, I love, love, LOVE the one you shot!
The focusing really bothered me in shooting mine. I had watched a YouTube video on shooting fireworks, but it never said to focus on the fireworks- it showed me how to focus on the elements around- which obviously didn’t work well. I had a timer on my camera, and it shot a total of 9 frames- 5 seconds exposure each. How would I focus on such a quick explosion?
Seeing the difference of mine verses yours, I can humbly say that mine don’t look near as good as I used to think they did. I think I’ll skip adding any of them to my portfolio, and try again this New Year’s Eve. 🙂
