Space Shuttle Columbia lifts off, photographed from the press site. This is a scan from my original slide (which is why its kinda dirty and I didnt want to violate any rules by cleaning it up in Photoshop).

For my firecracker pics I used a 300 mm lens set on manual at f/25 and 1 sec exposure. 300 mm to protect my camera, 1 sec to decrease the luck in timing.

light fuse...wait...wait...click...BOOM...click. Cool.

I did blur out the license. Hopefully that will still fall under the spirit of the rules.
