Celebrate Our Independence

Uploaded: July 10, 2008


F16, 3.2s, ISO 100, flood filter
I went to Safety Harbor to watch the fireworks because it was overlooking the bay. I thought surely they would shoot them out over the water, but they didn't. Needless to say, I was disappointed!

Exif: F Number: 16, Exposure Bias Value: 0.00, ExposureTime: 32/10 seconds, Flash: reserved, ISO: 100, White balance: Manual white balance, FocalLength: 27.00 mm, Model: Olympus E-500
