I never tried before to take a panorama while shooting fireworks. And I haven’t even taken the nodal slider with me, as it was totally unplanned. But I still tried it out. Probably just because I needed to do something, as my fingers were freezing onto the camera :) (I was not able to control it while wearing gloves at all). The result is not completely as I hoped for, as I stupidly left the fireworks right where I needed to blend the shots. Still, it’t not completely bad :)

This is a two shots panorama, combined in PTgui, edited in Lightroom and Photoshop.
