I like these a lot - although clearly you should have used a tripod
Framing is excellent though.
It looks like you needed one shot (and exposure setting) for the fireworks and one for the surrounding area. You could of course cheat and photograph the scene with exposure optimised for that and then change the exposure (reduce the brightness) for the fireworks. Then you could simply paste the fireworks into the previously shot scene.
I might try that next time!
