good use of light, black and white works well with this composition. I really like this photograph, very well done.I think the photo is at least a 9

Even though this is B&W, I still got a festive feel from it (and enjoyed it a lot).

Nice work!

I like this one too. I hope it will do really well. Good luck!

another B/W, great job with exposure and composition

Well if I have ever seen a b/w photo of fireworks that works, this is the closes to it. Still think I would have liked it better in color but this is not half bad, that church is always gloomy and dark no matter what a photographer does with it :)

Very nice. I like the inclusion of people and the building - adds a lot of life to the shot.

Þessi mynd fékk hæstu einkunn frá mér á LMK.. get reyndar ekki gefið henni einkunn hér en hvað um það, myndi fá mína hæstu einkunn hér líka sýnist mér.

Fantastic exposure and composition. Very lively and well done photograph!

I wouldn't have thought I'd like a fireworks shot in B&W, but I do!

The exaggerated "lean in" works well here, as does the softening effect of the smoke haze. Like the motion blur of the characters in the foreground.

Mono was a good choice. All round fine pic!

So cool - sort of looks haunted. Love the drama of this shot. Back to bump you up to 9. Adding to favorites - the shot just rocks! In my top three for the challenge.

What a beautiful image - Great chance turning it into a black and white but it really works. Almost makes it feel dated with the church just adding to it. My fav of the set - 10 (I think this is my first 10 vote!)

Superb! << 9 >>

Nice composition and perspective.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Gets a 10 from me. I love this image, as there is such a lot happening. The church has been captured nicely, as has the sky. Well done.

havent seen so many of the others, but this were really good. different.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/02/2007 04:26:10 PM
I think this would not have worked as well in full color... the way that you have it adds to the majesticness that the building / perspective portray. (hope that all makes sense)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/02/2007 02:07:32 PM
Very neat perspective - I really think color (at least for the fireworks) would have made this photo really pop!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/02/2007 12:46:41 PM
This is such a cool shot to look at. Very different from the average fireworks shot. This would be my top pick if voting.

Powerful image, well done. 8 from me.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/02/2007 11:05:26 AM
That is flawless. I'm so pleased you did it in black and white. It lends a totally different take on it. Terrific perspective and I love the movement of the people. 10

Nice capture, would have liked to see the color version of this one :)

Kind of looks like white out spilled on a magazine picture. I like it a lot but the firework is not as cool as its surroundings. -8

Very cool.
