Very good Fireworks shots. I see you expose between 9 and 16 seconds using aperture 16. Why 16 aperture? The fireworks seem far away enough for f/4

Frank, the fireworks are so bright that all the subtle colors will be brown out to be white if the aperture is set to f4.0.  I think f11-16@ISO100 is kind of standard setting for fireworks.  I shoot annual fireworks around the same settings.

I knew I'd like this set once I got to see it on my [home] computer [with a good display]. The first one is magic! The fifth one is right in there. I like the whole series. Thank You!

Thank you Akira, never tried shooting fireworks, not my cup of tea. Better to know than not to know
You are out there. You and your camera. You can shoot or not shoot as you please. Discover the world, Your world. Show it to us. Or we might never see it.

Thanks everybody  for all the enthusiastic comments. AKira's reply is right on, too many firework images one see around get overexposed and washed out by overexposure.
(I tend to check my images from last year each time just to remember the settings.  :)  )

Thanks Erik,
Even with the right aperture one can wash out the colors.   ;)
This one was only 2.5 sec, but in the finale when it went crazy.  :)
