Hope everyone had a safe and relaxing holiday weekend. I enjoyed our local parade this morning and fireworks show this evening. The fireworks photos are an improvement over last year's batch so that is a good thing. I long for a fireworks shows with a more picturesque background other than a plain dark sky ... got lucky on this one and captured a streak of lightning as well.

Canon XSi, lens 60mm. Camear settings: Aperture Priority, f16, ISO 800, ended up with a 32 sec expsoure, used tripod. Bumped up levels and adjusted noise in PSE9.

Thanks for looking, Gail
