Very pretty. I like seeing the path of the projectiles as well as the full explosion - very nice.

I think you did a great job. I've done fireworks as well but I shoot mine on ISO 400 film instead of digitally. I also stop down considerably more at f/16-22 due to the faster ISO. I figured I would benefit from sharper images due to the deeper DOF from the smaller aperature, but I think your images look great without stopping down as much. Nice job.

Hey, nice pics! Better than my first attempts for sure. Maybe a longer exposure, like 4-5 secs instead of 2-3 secs would give you a larger "flower" and a little brighter color.

One thing no one else commented on is the apparently angled horizon, fix that and the images would be even better :)
