There is a first time for everything. This was the first time I photographed fireworks (with a professional camera). I wasn’t sure exactly what settings I should use, but I ended up using an ISO between 400 and 800, an aperture between 9 and 16, shutter speed between 0.5 and 0.8 sec. I’m quite happy with the result, except the huge crane that shows in some of the pics (it is the biggest crane in the world, I heard!). These were (some of) the fireworks during the UAE’s national day.
