Blue Smoke

Well it’s about time I got around to some 4th of July photos.  I love fireworks, and you always seem to get home and be a bit disappointed about how your pictures turn out…  Well this time we had a perfect spot, and I was able to get in early, set up my tripod, try out a few shots and really be prepared.

The reflection of the brilliant blue colors remains on this long exposure, making the smoke look colored, while the streaks of light and color explode around the sky.

I have an awesome idea for a HDR fireworks shot.  I have attempted this before and it did not work out at all!  I mean it was bad.  This time I have a few new tricks up my sleeve, so wish me luck.
