    i think one should take fireworks at the very start of the display... too late and the smoke kills the picture

    i guess the smoke spoilt the otherwise nice picture.

    but nice capture of the trails tho..

    a tighter crop closer to the cluster of fireworks would be nice. cos now there is too much empty sky. the fireworks slightly over exposed, reducing exposure will bring out the colours.

    so i assuming u r going back to shoot on the actual day same spot? cos that lense at that angle looks fine cropping can be done later, minus tha fact the file will shrink rather than fireworks bursting outside the frame...

    wen i took the fireworks most pics were spoiled by the increasing amount of smoke too. sad lah cause the best of it happens to be at the grand finale-that time the smoke is intense. at least the upper right firework came out clear and nice-nice job!

    Also, there's something distracting and black in the foreground at the bottom of the picture.
