Re: 5D & 4th of July Firework Photos

I think most of your shots look just fine and personally I like a few of them with the tree and lighter sky. Adds some interest to the images.

As to settings. I shot the FW in Williamsburg, VA this year. I set my camera, 1DM3, to F/8 at ISO 100. Shutter to bulb. I used my remote release and held the shutter open from 2 to 4 seconds depending on the bursts. As to focus I set the lens, 17-40, to manual, focused on infinity and then backed it off just a tad.

Here's a few samples.
