The hyperfocal distance will probably also work. However, I would set the focus in much deeper since the fireworks will be more distant.For example, for this series I prefocused on the Space Needle while the fireworks are a mile or so beyond it. But at f/11, the depth of field more than covers it.For folks shooting at a closer distance than "across the bay", getting the focus distance right will help some. But deep into the hyperfocal distance should do a reasonable job.---------+---------+---------+---------+---------+Joseph KSeattle, WA, USAD700, D200, D70S, 24-70mm f/2.8, VR 70-200mm f/2.8 II, 50mm f/1.4 D, 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6 VR, 18-70mm f/3.5-4.5 DX
