I had the tripod but had the wrong attachment piece with me... so I attempted the fireworks without.... I also played with the ISO some were on 800 for a more blurry effect the rest were on 1600 ....
if you have never been down to the river to enjoy this display... it was amazing.... (Tammi and I took the kids to the Saturday show)
I took over 100 photos... I am just trying to get the slide show to load up... maybe later tonight I can figure it out =-)
