Aquatennial fireworks

I'm still learning my way around shooting in full manual with a DSLR (Canon Rebel T6). So I was disappointed in the results I got from the 4th of July fireworks.  Also, my vantage point on the Plymouth Ave bridge wasn't the best.  I tried to learn some lessons in order to apply them to what we all know is the better fireworks show of the summer: the Target Aquatennial fireworks.
