Firework photos are notoriously difficult.
When we used to take in films at the place i worked, around bonfire nights, we used to gets loads of really disappointing pictures. At least with digital cameras, you can see its no good, and not waste money printing them.
I think the learning curve can be so much quicker with digital. it is cheap to experiment with bracketing, etc.
With underwater macro shots, the in thing is a ring flash, which bathes a small area with an even light, instead of the usual strobe to one side ( or two strobes)
