This truly is an outstanding image, but from a very personal point of view, truly does is not representative of landscape. Congratulations on your ribbon.

Excellent shot. I love the long exposure showing the skyline, San Diego Bay, boats, blue sky and great fireworks. Someone told me Coronado was a great place to see the July 4 fireworks since you can see several of them including Sea World, Petco Park, Del Mar Fair, up and down the coast, etc. Congratulations on the blue and for getting San Diego on the front page yet again. I took fireworks only shots at the Del Mar (ok, now it's San Diego County) Fair but they're nothing compared to this.

Thanks! Yes, Coronado is. Big Bay fireworks was only 20 minutes. I remember when it finished, some people still sat there and watched Sea World's show for a while.

Congratulations on your blue ribbon! However, I have a question, and not to start any controversy, but is this really a "landscape" shot? To me it is more of a city/waterscape/sky shot.

Beautiful image, it was a 10 in my books! It would have been a great shot without the fireworks. It's an amazing shot with them. Whoever gave you the 1 must have smoking crack! Congratulations.

It was too far and dark for me to see that, could be a barge close to the San Diego side.

Awesome shot. I love how you caught all the separate bursts. I hope you wrote down how you did that. Love the clarity of the whole scene and the reflections in the water are beautiful too.

One of the best fireworks shots I've seen in a very long time. Excellent balance with the city/water. Just lovely overall, a sure 10.

Without a doubt the best fireworks picture I have seen in recent memory. I tried this 4th of July and failed miserably so I'll be interested to see the specifics. Good job!
