Hey! It's 09-09-09! I don't think that mean's very much, but as someone interested in the quarks and oddities of life, I'll take it. Moving on… I was instantly inspired by Stéfan [photoblog.com] and Peter's [photoblog.com] recent posts', so I went to my archive and found these two shots from the the same day I shot this scene [photoblog.com]. Yeah, they're kinda blurry; I've got a lot to learn about night photography/fireworks photography. Cheers.

Wow, incredible fireworks pics! I've tried to shoot fireworks with no success. I think the exposure is perfect because you capture the explosiveness, the colored haze, and also the black night behind. Everything is in balance.

I've only tried fireworks once so far and didn't get any great shots. Not something you can practice very often:)
