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.

Canon XSi, 60mm lens. Camera settings: Aperture Priority, f18, ISO 800, ended up with a 16 sec exposure, used tripod. Bumped up levels a bit and adjusted noise in PSE9.

Thanks for looking, Gail
