I have no words to say how beautiful this picture is. I've been trying to shoot fire works since two years but this is magical. Shutter? aperture? white balance?

Thanks so much. Sachin I use very different exposures depending also on foreground lighting. I never exceed 5 second exposures at F11 to F16. Focusing is always manual also. never leave the camera on autofocus and always use a cable release.

Thanks laurence, any particular white balance. I have tried shooting at 2seconds but it always blurs. Do you do any post correction, what software and how? It's always good to learn from a Guru.

White balance usually on Auto but I always try to experiment with other settings but they all seem to have very similar reults. Post correction is minimal. I only fine tune the levels to get that perfect black even when there is some smoke. I use Photoshop usually. If you are getting a blur your tripod is not sturdy enough. Also another thing I do is use a piece of black cloth and I keep the camera covered to minimize any light entering from behind through the viewfinfder. These long exposures need a very sturdy tripod and cable release or remote.
