    well I hope everyone has had a great time this 4th, we went for a walk at night to enjoy the fireworks but it was a disaster, the place was canceled so they did a very small event, anyway I take my 55-210mm and I made some shots at the big celebration in Manhattan. It was a long distance, we're talking about 5.5 miles.

    Nicely done. The one thing I wish we had here is a city skyline to shoot against.

    Very nice, composition and framing of your fireworks shot is really good and was metered perfectly. Congrats buddy

    Not as much of a disaster as what had happened to the fireworks display in San Diego according to our TV News. Apparently there was a computer glitch that triggered all the fireworks at once, so the show was all over in under 15 seconds!!!


    I think it worked-out really well in the end, having the Manhattan cityscape to shoot against. It gave the fireworks a better sense of scale and relevance. Real nice!

    I love the shots with the skyline - Absolutely fantastic

    Is the first shot of the full moon full frame? I haven't been able to come close to that with the 55-210
