I actually started out with 30 seconds and realized that was too much, so went down to 20, and kept going down. I cut it to 2 at the end, as they were coming too fast. You just have to experiment. I was happy that the sky was still blue at the beginning, but it darkened pretty fast.

Great shots i particularly like fireworks shots.  One thing i would recommend because its so much easier than to use a timed exposure is to use bulb.  Set your camera to bulb mode, use a remote.  Hit the remote once to open the shutter right after you see the fireworks go up in the air, then after they burst and get all pretty hit the remote again to close the shutter. This is much easier than to try and time it by doing 20 or 30 second intervals.  Here is one of mine
