What appears to be blurry is actually smoke. It looks better on paper.

Fireworks are never easy, and this is exceptional. Nice work. It says you had the shutter open 15 that your technique, to leave it open that long so you have multiple explosions to choose from?

Just found this one. It's very unusual, especially the colors, considering they're fireworks. Almost looks like a plant of some sort, with that greenish background. Care to elaborate?

I have read to use a long shutter for fireworks, besuace keep in mind that it is DARK out, and the camera is pointed towards the sky where the only light will be the fireworks. I tired a whole bunch of diffrent times. At the time, I was using a Sigma SD9 which had a maximum exposure time of 15 sec. I probabally would have used an even longer one if I could have.

The background is actualy smoke from the fireworks. I think that it is green from the colors of the explosions.
