Very nice! I took a few snaps from our house (I am not a pro! LOL) but of course they didn’t look like THAT!) Fireworks shots are hard to get. :)

I agree, she’s a young female Ansel Adams in color!

of course I acknowledge that Ansel was male, older and a B & W master who photographed nature ofter times with extended time exposures.

but the final products have striking similar beauty IMHO

I like that one, too. I am such a child when it comes to fireworks.

Its necessary to have a tripod. I went with ISO 400, a middle of the road apeture setting of around 14, and used bulb setting and held the shutter for around 10 or 15 seconds. They're actually relatively easy with a little practice. That's all this one was is a practice shot.

MIne were not that excellent, as all you could see was black sky and I had to use photo shop to bring out the colors. They made me happy, but they were not awesome like yours. :)

Fireworks

Then again, my son said it looked like a screen saver! LOL

Funny you should ask, I spotted this one in the area:

I have even heard that some have been seen on bicycles.

You are kind. But it would be nice to get shots with background in them. However, the background on these would have been rooftops anyway. And rain. And probably my umbrella!
