    I went out to the local highway and watched the fireworks from a distance..I was probably about 2 miles or so from the launch point. I was in the middle of the Florida Everglades, so I didn't have to deal with too much ambient light.I used a mix of exposures from bulb, to 1/2 sec. I set my MF to infinity and it was @ ISO100 equiv. I zoom in a tad to fill up the picture with fireworks. I am very pleased with how they came out, considering I had my tripod on about 5" of thick grass and I didnt have a cable shutter release.

    I just cropped/resized/adjusted saturation and saved at level 7 for the web. Enjoy the pics, feedback is welcomed and encouraged!
