I love to take fireworks pictures. As such I know how hard it is to get a good foreground element or background to line up with the fireworks. You did a great job setting this shot up. Your exsposure and composition are excellent as well. I would like to know how far away from the building were the fireworks (and how far away from you) and also what lens did you use?

Thanks for your comments.


John, the fireworks are about 200 - 300 meters behind the Camponile fired from a bridge spanning the Connecticut River. Photographers set up on the steps of the Springfield, Ma Civic Center which is about 150 meters from the Camponile.


I used a Canon 70 -200L lens on my D30 set at 110mm which converts to around 160mm on the D30. ISO set at 100, F8 @ 4 seconds.


More versions of this shot in my fireworks folder.
