Oh wow. I had such fun shooting fireworks. This was at the annual Watertown 4th of July festival where there is music all afternoon followed by fireworks. It takes place at the Terry Redlin Art Museum, which is a gorgeous property with lots of green areas outside of the museum. I'm pretty sure at least half of Watertown was at this event. (We just sat in our car for about 45 minutes after the event waiting for cars to move out .) The fireworks lasted maybe 10 minutes, some were just wonderful. We had seats less than 1/4 mile from the launch site, so that was neat too.

Editing was just a little bit of slider actions (contrast, vibrance) in Lightroom and a crop.

My first HM. So exciting. Summer is so busy, it is hard to stay involved here but I am so glad I haven't given up?
