    Not a great location for fireworks shooting, behind trees and off to the side of the display. Plus I was shooting from a mall parking lot... convenient for the kids, but I was essentially bracketed by sodium lights. Also had a little trouble focusing. But still fun... anticipating the shot via live view was a real change from my normal style. Just set the camera on the fireworks scene mode for these shots.

    Then things got funky

    After switching my K7 to the tripod so the #1 Hellion could play with it I decided to do some handheld shots... things got funky.

    Pen-128-M.

    Pen-129-M.

    Pen-132-M.

    Pen-136-M.

    These are all really minimally processed, just bashed out to get them up to share. I like the handhelds... it was like making jellyfish.
