    Would be better if you crop off the blank sky on the top of the 1st few shots.

    megaweb,siewsphone, ckiang thanks! noted that. I actually wanted to crop it but I just want to show what I expected(a higher fireworks) Yeah cropping it will make it a landscape which will show most of the fireworks.

    need your help/advice on two of my overexposed shots below. would it be ok if I adjust the F-number to a higher value? or any other settings which I need to take note off? thanks!





    both setting:
    Shutter speed: 2 sec
    Aperture: 5.6
    Exposure mode: Manual
    Flash: Off
    Metering mode: Multi-segment
    ISO: 100
    Focal length: 7.0 mm
    No cropping was done

    For ISO 100, the recommended aperture setting is f/8 or f/11. That's is why at f/5.6, your fireworks are washed-out. Do try smaller apertures (higher values) if you are shooting again on the actual day.

    Happy shooting!

    As bean said, a smaller aperture would help, as is a shorter exposure time. Things like that are pretty common when shooting fireworks and I have my fair share of them.

    The other technique you can try is to open up your aperture to the maximum, then use a shorter shutter speed e.g. 1/15s. This will give a different look to the fireworks (much like what you see on the spot) consisting of short "dots" instead of lines. This tip was given to me by the lab I go to, but I have yet to try it.
