Shutter: 1/20

Taken on guy fawlkes night! I know there's a bit of noise going on here - I had to boost the ISO to 3200 to get the shutter speed low enough to shoot with no tripod!

Usual pp stuff. Est 5.6, anything above 6 would be nice!

POST - Wow this did much better than I expected - never underestimate the power of fireworks! I'd like to thank Leeds City Council for their display, Guy Fawlkes for his failed attempt to blow up Parliament, and Neat image! I'll post some out takes soon.

Congratulations on 4th place. This shot is fabulous and I am amazed that you got it without a tripod. 'A bit of noise going on here', well of course there is - it's fireworks! lol

I don't think the allowed sizing in this challenge allows this image to truly shine. This would be great blown up and hanging in a suiting venue.
