Shot taken at the Baltimore inner harbor.

Regarding focus: Manual focus is difficult for these old eyes. I took about 100 shots during the display, mostly auto focus. It takes a while for auto focus to catch a burst. The solution appears to be to take a shot in auto focus, then switch to manual after the camera has found the range. f8 helps.

All shots taken in "Bulb." Shots of 1 to 3 seconds maximize color, while longer shots tend to burn to white.

All shots taken in Live View. This is where the flip-out LCD on a T3i would have helped.
