    #1 would be better if there was a real close up shot of the left eye and the firework reflection

    but right now, the reflection is too damn small

    I'm going with #4.

    #1 is my favorite.. its easy to take a long exposure of fireworks, but the reflection is much more original..

    Some nice firework shots but I'm rather surprised that #2 hasn't received more votes. It's my favorite because it screams typical 4th of July.

    1 would be awesome if it were closer on the eye, and more in focus.

    just wondering. Have you ever taken "easy long exposures" of fireworks? and can you give me a link to some of your work?

    I don't have anything on this computer (my main computer's motherboard blew, so I'm on an old back-up which was my wifes...)

    But seriously, its not too hard, just stick your camera on a tripod, stop it up pretty high to get rid of any background lighting, focus on where the fireworks are going off, set the exposure time to like 4 or 5 seconds or something, set the iso low to prevent noise and ambient light, and click.

    I've done it before, its not rocket science (no pun intended)

    I'm not demeaning #3 by any means, trust me, the symmetry is amazing up top, but its not a hard shot (or an original shot) IMO...
