This entry is barely legal - having been taken 14 minutes after rollover. I decided to enter this traditional and hardly original image because it's the first time I've ever had any success taking fireworks images. The whole set can be seen on my FB page. On the horizon, next to the flare column, are the fireworks from Santa Monica's show.

Oh wow, I certainly didn't expect this "tiny violin" score to make the top ten....

Very nice Johanna. The tiny detailed bursts in the distance make this one a standout.

Congrats on the top 10 finish! What were the settings for this shot? Tripod or hand-held?
