Photo of the Week: Boom Boom!

Boom Boom!
"Boom Boom!" Copyright Andy Marfia 2013 All Rights Reserved. Nikon D7100 w/ 16-85mm lens, 8sec at f8, ISO200

It seems like a no brainer for a fireworks photo to be my featured photo this week.  I hope everyone's having a lovely 4th of July weekend!  This shot was taken at Foster Ave Beach.  These fireworks were launched by the Saddle & Cycle Club, a private club in Edgewater.  If you ask me, it's a better show than the city of Chicago's fireworks.

This is an 8 second exposure with the camera mounted on a mini tripod.  Full disclosure: this is actually a composite image.  I merged the sky together from two different exposures to get a bit more bang in the photo.

Great shot, Andy! I especially love the people in the foreground.

Thanks Mike. The group of people closest to me moved into the scene after I set up the tripod. It worked out well.
