Finally took a few fireworks pics for the first time while at Disneyland last weekend. Don't think they came out too bad for my first attempt.

Nice shots!

I'd crop them down a little, to get rid of some of the dead space.

Not bad for a first attempt. What can you tell us about the exposure settings?

My fireworks are normally done from a tripod and cable release,
4-6 seconds to get the desired shape,
f/11 to f/16 depending on the brightness,
lowest numbered ISO the camera will do,
white balance set to sunny/daylight so that the colors look correct.

Nikon D7200 with an 18-105 f/3.5-5.6 VR DX in Bulb mode, ISO 100 at F/14 for 15 to 25 or so seconds. White balance was set to auto. I tweaked the pics a little bit in the Nikon Capture NX-D program.
