    I like #3 - fireworks by themselves can get boring.

    Robin- I've been shooting fireworks for a number of years and have two suggestions... Assuming you're using a tripod, first, try ISO 100. It will give you less noise and sharper photos. Second, stop down a bit. f/5.6 or f/8 are fine, especially if you have stuff in the foreground. No need to shoot wide open if you're on a tripod, with mirror up and cable release. And why not try some longer exposures. Like 4-6 seconds? Fourth of July is coming up. Great time to try different techniques.

    Here are 2 older photos taken with a D90 when I first got it in 2008. Every night there are fireworks unless it is very windy. They are really beautiful in the snow. These were taken from the English Embankment of the Neva River in St Petersburg so the foreground buildings and art academy and museum of natural history are on an island and the fireworks are being launched from another island on the beach in front of Peter and Paul Fortress, the first building of St Petersburg Russia when it was founded in 1703. So the fireworks are about 1 mile behind the foreground buildings. The bottom image shows the spire of Peter and Paul Cathedral inside the walls of the fortress, and where all the Romanov royal families were buried
