Very good

It is not easy to do this kind of picture with with appropriate exposure. Well done.

Ghosts of New Year's This is a single shot using the black card technique used with fireworks shots. My son and his fiancee posed in the center of the frame for 4 seconds and then the lens was covered with the black card. With the lens covered Julie removed the flashlight that had been illuminating their portrait. Matthew lit the side fireworks and the black card came down for 1 second. After those fireworks went out a sparkler was lit and Julie wrote her name in the air with the sparkler followed by Matthew doing the same. They wrote their names facing the camera which meant they had to write their names backwards with the letters reversed. Total time the shutter was open was 134 seconds @ F11 and exposure time was about 30 seconds. If nothing else it was a great way to spend time with my kids and we all enjoyed putting the shot together. This is the third and final take - we ran out of fireworks! Thanks for your time.
