    This is absolutely the first time I've even thought about attempting to shoot fireworks. It was a pretty nice show at the fairgrounds, though short, but it was free. :)

    There were some nice flowers around so I took a few shots before the sun went all the way down.

    I took about 60 fireworks shots, some playing with settings in manual mode and some with the Fireworks preset scene mode. I couldn't tell you which I was using for these.

    I'm no pro and I'm still learning with my Canon PowerShot G7. I might not of chosen the best for comparison but in ways, flowers and fireworks are very similar. Bright colors, blooming... you get the idea. :cool:

    Very nice. #1 & #4 are my favorites. I tried some fireworks shots tonight to no avail. I just couldn't get it to work/look right. Oh well.
