You just shoot from a distance and focus to infinity.

OP, great shots! I LOVE the lighting of #3!

Greats set!

I really like the last one. The lit tree it is floating on water. Bravo

Keep up the good work.

Only modifications to that image was a the removal of part of a picnic table that was in the bottom left corner (outside the view of the viewfinder) and slight adjustment to white balance. I messed around with the white balance quite a bit but thought this (which is slightly less blue than the original) gave the best colors in the stars.

Usually f/5.6 +-stop and focus on something about 500 feet away (You can confirm with live view). The fireworks are usually 400-700ft for a display like this. Then I used an IR remote and held the button for the time of the firework explosion. Most of these were 2 to 3 seconds. I made minor adjustments to exposure in the end. In fact, most of them were slightly over exposed, event at ISO 100. I could probably have stopped it down to f/8 and would have been fine.

I had an issue with someone who took some of my photos (along with other people's) and cropped out watermarks. With it being in the corner that was very easy and didn't take much away from the picture. It was a .tk domain on a free host so about all I could do is get the hosting company to shutdown the site. I am more tolerant to my photos being reposted with the watermark intact, but if someone removes it, I'll happily sue them. My pictures are available in print but I don't put my images on the internet to be freely distributed.

All of my lenses focus slightly past infinity. If you can find something far away to focus at, that will be more accurate, through it depends on the lens. My Nikon kit lens, 35mm, and 70-200mm VR all do that.

I started using that image as my desktop on my work laptop and had quite a few people comment on it. When I stop moving so frequently, I'm going to get a big print of that for the fireplace.

Thanks! That shot was after about an inch of freezing rain. I was walking around using the tripod as a walker, and then it was sliding when I tried to take the picture since the ground wasn't level. Its probably the most work for a single picture I have ever had.
