This is a collage of three different fireworks put together the images are real I have captured them over a period of three years I just thought they would look cool in one image! All three images were shot on a tripod, all three images were shot at 100iso with a manual shutter release on 3 sec count at f4,0 the star image was shot in front of the university the other two were shot on a black sky at the stadium behind the university. all three were brought in to Photoshop for post processing. The image was flattened and worked in adjustments and shadow highlights doing the tone mapping from there by eye. The box firework did not show up well in the thumbnails of other postings but when open on full view everything shows up great!
