What is your opinion

So these are some more of my first try out with the firework setting on my camera. which of these four would you consider a good picture? what could I've done different? are they clear enough. is the timing out? remember everything is pre set, all I did was try to aim to where I thought them to appear.
the picture I chose is in my default album.

I like the way you have gathered them but my favorite is the upper left. More bang for the buck!

I think they're as good as you get. Fireworks are always tricky these are great.

@ellida Thank you Graham. I guess I did ok then.

I haven't taken any fireworks photos before.......so I think you have done a magnificent job!!

I`ve try it once long ago. And I was n`t as good as you`re Have no preference as the fireworks it self is the master of the show.

I like the upper left one, but since I've never tried to capture fireworks I will not be much help

I'd have to agree with Rick and Allison- I like the upper left the best, even though the one below it is more in focus. When I shot fireworks with my 35 mm, I always used a tripod. I'd let the first one or two booms serve as a guide to where most of them would go, and then adjust the aim accordingly. I've yet to try this with my p & s as the only tripod I have for it is very small! But if you're sitting on the ground you can use your knees as the tripod and try it that way. If you're standing you'll get any movement you make in the shot- so it's up to you how focused you want the fireworks to be. I think you did a good job on these- I'm not sure how much you can improve it other than upgrading your camera!

They sure look good to me. I see nothing at all to critique. I've never taken any photos of fireworks before so I'm no expert. On the 4th I usually stay inside and watch them on TV. Our neighborhood goes all out and it's way too noisy outside, but this year maybe I'll try to catch some shots and see what happens. I think you did great!

@cimes1 Thank you Carole. not too bad then for the first try. good luck when you try yours on the 4th of July.

@olivetreeann Thank you so much for your input, Ann. here I thought the bang should look like something like the one in my default album. I guess I should googled fireworks to look at some pictures. what I couldn't figure out was why it took so long for the picture to appear after I clicked, and by the time it finally did, the round was over and I didn't get another shot. so I had a lot of take and miss (blank uploads). but in general I'm pleased that some of you preferred the shot I thought wasn't good enough. under different circumstances, I should've used a tripod and my 35 mm. there were just too many people around and kids running all over with their Christmas sparklers. I'm sure you no which ones I mean.

@bruni Sometimes even with the tripod it's hit or miss!

Those are all great shots, Bruni. Each is unique in its own way. They are all beautiful. Great collage. You're lucky you have the fireworks setting. I don't think my Canon has one of those. I will have to look. But then again, I don't know if I'm going to go to the fireworks on the 4th. I haven't been since my daughter left home. Too depressing. Anyyyway... Great shots all.

@prttblues Thank you Bev. appreciate your comment. sorry about your daughter. I can't imagine how it must feel. I'm so close to my daughter.

Love the collage and your choice of background colour. Katharine

@bruni I haven't celebrated any occasion at all since she left. Not even Mother's Day... I figure I'm not a mother anymore. The last year I celebrated any holiday was 2008. It's good you are close to your daughter.
