Hello all, Im pretty new to the world of photography. I just purchased my first DSLR, a Nikon D60.

I took some photos of the fireworks going on in San Diego over the 4th of July.

Please take a look at them and see the EXIF data and tell me what you think of my photos, and how I may be able to improve on my techniques.

I am using the 55-200mm Nikor Lens for these photos.

Thanks, I look forward to getting some feedback from you all!

Cool, thanks! Take a look at some of the other photos, especially the ones from the Wave House. I got some good ones there too.

Sweet shots! I used the same camera/lens combo as you but my shots were blurry. Did you use a tripod? I didn't... :(

Yeah, you HAVE to use a tripod to get clean shots. You have to leave your shutter open for more than 1/2 a second, and even the slightest vibration will ruin the shot.

I picked up a tripod at Target for less than $30. Works great!

But thanks for the compliment!

yes, a tripod is an absolute must!
Also some cropping couldn't heart.
To my opinion you should either get more 'ground' into the picture when you think it 'adds' to the picture. Otherwise just concentrate on the sky.
