So as its the 5th of November and I'm taking the kids to Wicksteed park tonight for some fireworks, I wonder if anyone else is going to be taking any tonight and what settings they will be using to get the perfect shot?

Also POST YOUR PICS!!

I let my camera sit on the balcony while shooting these. Key is basically minimum ISO for lowest noise, small aperture (f/8 - f/11 worked pretty well for me), and long enough shutter to catch the fireworks. :p (and give the camera a good enough exposure) I think they were usually exposed for around 25 seconds each. So tripod / some sort of place to put it on is of course a must. :D Well, that's my tips.

Here's what I ended up with:
