Photographer's Note

Had an almost perfect view of the fireworks this year from the Millender Center. I wish I could have seen down to the river but I was lucky just to have this vantage point.

The buildings on the left are part of the Renaissance Center which is now the General Motors world headquarters. On the opposite side of the Detroit River is Windsor, Ontario (Canada).

For this shot I held the shutter open and covered the lense with my black tripod bag, exposing the scene 3 or 4 times for about 1 second each time. Normally you should use ASA100 or less for fireworks due to the long exposures & bright fireworks -- However I was using up a roll of 400 and therefore compensated by using a smaller aperture (higher f-stop).
