Fireworks capture taken at Canada Day celebrations in Sarnia, Ontario, Canada in 2012.

Better on black...

Last one in this series (until another fireworks display). The wind really picked up towards the end so the smoke was blowing heavily. I was unfortunately downwind so the images have a lot of smoke in them. The thing I like about these photos is that the initial burst is visible. You have to open the shutter as the firework shoots into the sky and not wait for it to burst in order to capture the centre starburst. I need some more practice yet, and also a location that has an interesting foreground subject.
