Back Yard fireworks with hand held 5D MK II and 15mm FE.  The camera was moving, I did not have a tripod along.

The shells are not huge ones like the commercial display, and I was only 20 to 30 ft back.  It was raining, but no problem for the camera or lens, but I did remove a few water drops in PP.

Canon 7D with 17-55mm @ 21mm
Bulb Mode / ISO 100 /  F8 / remote shutter release / 3-5sec exposure depending on burst.

I stayed home this year.
I planed on going this year to Kings Park for a change but the weather was too hot and I'm guessing very little space for late arrivals with tripods in Kings Park :)

Cheers
