Would have liked to been lower but was on the 20th floor balcony, windy and cold, Usually I am lighting them at shows so it was a change actually watching these at Niagara Falls !

Nice set - shot 3 is my fave.

Some fairly decent fireworks shots there but I think as you say being lower would have been better as the street lights and the falls are a bit distracting. They look a bit soft too but I wonder if that's due to the board's compression. All of these images are in the 55kb range. To keep the board from mangling them you need to upload images that are a maximum of 275KB and 1024 pixels on the longest edge.

Actually it's been upped to 300K and 1026 pixels at the longest end.

Pretty good for a first attempt, I think. Don't think I would have done as well.

thanks all, good to know about the upper limit, as for mangling them I look as that as learning from the replies, Although I agree that they lost alot when put online.

Very nice Kev. Really likin' #3, and #4. Third one almost has a 3-D effect.
