My first ever fireworks shot. I couldn't get to a fireworks display this year, but I saw these going off through my window, so here you have a handheld, through-window shot! I really wish I could have gone out with a tripod and done it properly.
Looks great, who needs a tripod with hands as steady as this (11 secs.! ), you're not a surgeon by any chance.'There is no point pressing the shutter unless you are making some caustic comment on the incongruities of life. That is what photography is all about. It is the only reason for doing it.'......Philip Jones Griffiths
Thanks Steve. It's only good considering the circumstances though. I really wish I could have gone to a proper display. There is one near here to which I had planned to go. It is held over a lake, and I had already planned all of my shots. I was quite upset when I found out that I couldn't go, but then my neighbours (or their children!) decided to have a mini display of their own, so I grabbed my camera and this is the best of the five shots I managed to get. Thanks for your comment!
