    Looks underexposed. Try longer exposure.

    hmmm, thanks. I will work on it, maybe next year already. Just to check, under expose is cause the building a bit dark, or the firework not bright enough. want to learn more, how u all see. Then i can improve. Thanks.

    First thing I have to say, read the rules and guidelines. An user is allowed to post up one picture a week for comments and critique. I'll comment on your first picture, your exposure could be longer to give the fireworks more trails. If possible go wider, either by lens or changing of location. Good work on your first try still.

    Um, please read the regulations. It's one photo per week here. Consider yourself quite lucky that the mod didn't crack down on your lack of a proper critique-seeking write up.

    Going with the regulations, I'll thereby comment on your first shot. It is underexposed not because of the fireworks being insufficiently bright, but simply because of too short an exposure time. Try shooting on Bulb mode and expose slightly longer.

    evilorgi: yes sitting inside. That's why quite restricted on the back ground. And i am in the front 12th row.
    Noob sniper: thanks. Can preshoot bg.
    All: i will work on longer exposure time the next round. Thanks.
