"I was trying take a good shot of fireworks and this is my fourth time taking shot of fireworks. This was taken from west end overlooking pittsburg downtown and taken immediately after they started the fireworks so no smoke. I was lucky. I set my exposure when it was not dark and set my tripod at good location (of course I was late and got enough space with a couple of guys' help).
I used vello shutter boss and got this shot in BULB mode."- Venkatreddy Kancharla
