Outstanding photo Piotr! Excellent technique yielding fantastic colors and sharpness, and good timing and composition. I would like to know a little more about the way this photo was taken - the brand of camera you used, shutter speed, filters and rest...

Default To Liora: shoting fireworks display - equiment used

The camera I used for this shot was Olympus C-4000.

As far as I remeber there was circular polariser filter on the lens, and
of course I was using a tripod. I can not tell you now the exact exposure and f-stop values, but I will check the exif data when I'll be back from work and write you about it later this day. I suppose the exposure was about few seconds.

I was experimenting a lot with exposures this night and this shot was one of the most satisfying, yet there are more to show, but I don't know if the TrekEarth guidelines allow me to post the photos of the fireworks alone without any trace where they were taken?

Thanks! I'm you've got very good performance from the Olympus there - I have a Camedia 720 and I know how hard it is to make night shots with it.
I think you are allowed to post just fireworks shots here (I've seen more than few, see for instance http://www.trekearth.com/themes.php?thid=763, but I think the better shots include some structures.
