    WOW! That's scary! Good thing you were paying attention because that may be a sure fire way to ruin my vacation. I love my camera just as much as I love Disney!

    I have finally ordered the remote cable, & 0.9 ND filter. Will be here in time to use for our local firework displays. I'm excited!

    I just ordered a 0.9 ND filter last night as well! I already had the remote, but have never used it and will need to practice. Just wondering what lens people think is best for fireworks. I have canon 18-55 kit lens, 28-135 IS, 70-300mm and I am renting the 24-105mm IS. Any suggestions?

    Thanks! :thumbsup2

    Sorry for the long delay! We actually purchased a D700 and are loving it. Well, dh is. He was a photo major at university and it's in his blood. The cameras are definitely his thing!

    I love seeing all the shots of fireworks. Thank you Franklin for your special spots. This is our first trip and I've added your locations to my notes file. I hope they turn out!

    Beautiful picture. How far back are you on Main St? Don't you have tons of people in front of your tripod/camera or are you up on something?

    This one is where Main Street meets the Hub. Right next to the last lamp post on Main Street as it goes into the Hub.

    There were still a lot of people in front of the tripod. Mainly, it's a tall tripod. It goes up to 5' 7", then add the tripod head and camera body. Thats put the lens closer to 6' (1.8 meters). I'm also on the sidewalk, so that gets a couple more inches. You are also tilting the camera up, to get more sky. That eliminates the people immediately in front of the camera.

    Angels Stadium Friday Night Fireworks. Actually took this one from inside our hotel room at the Orange Doubletree. Probably would have turned out better if I hadn't been shooting though a window.
