Fourth of July Fireworks Photos

I know this isn't a firework, but it's a pretty cool tree.
I assume you'll understand.
Today is July 5th, meaning yesterday was the Fourth of July - Independence Day for us United Statesians. Please note: both common pronunciations (stayts-eeans or stay-tehsheeans) of this word are equally correct. With the yearly hullabaloo and pie comes the awesome tradition of FIREWORKS. I took some photos. Enjoy, and click to embiggen; it's well worth it on these...

What settings did you use on your camera? I had a hard time capturing the Detroit fireworks! (I have a Canon Rebel EOS T1i)

@ahyesplans - I varied the shutter speed between 30 and 90 seconds (had to use the bulb setting and hold the shutter open with a wired remote (to reduce vibration) on shots over 30 seconds), depending on how many fireworks I wanted in each shot. Otherwise, I had the f-stop high (25 or so), zero eV exposure correction, ISO at 200. Definitely had to use a tripod to maintain crisp lines. Let me know if all that makes sense, or if you have any other questions!
