trying a camera setting

We have a compact point and click Canon Powershot camera. Friday night I tried out the "fireworks" setting at a fireworks show. I like the results but maybe it should be called abstract fireworks.

Great job!  Fireworks are notoriously hard to capture, you did well - I love the vibrant colours.

Artsy fartsy fireworks. The pics are pretty cool, don't you think? I will have to see if I have a setting like that on our little Canon camera.

Oh, I like that setting, great photos.  If only my PowerShot wasn't stolen, I could try it out too!

These cameras re just so sophisticated these days. It's neat that you have the setting and that it worked out so well, bur it does look a bit like a painting.

Tres chic, Bill.

I think those came out great. It's so hard to capture fireworks. I'm always amazed when journalists get the perfect shots of fireworks in the sky.

It's pretty cool. I dig the shots.

Interesting. I always just use a regular setting for fireworks and they come out pretty cleanly:

very cool, it's like neon lights.

Wow, those are really interesting. They look less like fireworks and more like something my 3 year old would fingerpaint, but they're neat, anyway.

I know I am a little late here, still playing catch up. Nice captures, abstract fireworks are better than no fireworks.
