4th of July 2009. Magic Island Park Oahu Hawaii. Thousands of new design fireworks delighted a huge crowd Last Nite. I was there Second Row. Some fire works were so inmese we leaned back on our chairs and observed the lights fall literraly behind us. Or it seemed that way.

The Technical part: Tripod, Shutter Release cable, Camera set to Bulb and shutter opening/closing controlloed manually, White Balance set to 3200 Kelvin. Nikon 17-55 F2.8 set to its widest angle. 17mm. The lens apperture was fined tuned between F7 and F11 during the event. This one taken at about F7. ISO 100. Captured in Jpeg RGB mode and some Post Processing added in PS CS3 to enhance blacks and to fine tune sharpening. I also Reduced the resolution down in this one image for internet viewing. If you could see it at full resolution. I am in love with almost all the captures I took last nite.
