Guy Fawkes night last night and there have been fireworks going off all week. There was an official display directly infront of my flat in Southwark Park. Never shot fireworks before so decided to have a go.

Thoughts?

Keep in mind that nothing has been done to the shots... Straight from camera. :)

Ahhh - I remember guyfawks.  One of the best weeks of the year.  Each year my defence budget doubled.

I don't know who had more fun, me or the kids.  + There's nothing better than having rockets bigger than yourself,  and my car for that matter. :cool:

From a photgraphic point of view the firworks dont seem to 'pop' as much as much as they should/could/would  :? Not to sure if there's a whole lot that could be done when shooting over a whole bunch of other lights and on a bright cloudy sky. The orange tint everything seems to get from the city lights is a bit off putting for me too.

Anyhoo.. this all sounds a bit negative, im really just trying to provide some constructive criticism, just a bit light on the constructive part.

You have captured them well just the colors that dont quite work for me.

A couple of seconds with levels, color balance etc. in photoshop can get rid of the orange hue. No real science to what ive done (mainly because i dont really know it yet), just played with the sliders  ;)
