Photograph Information Photographer's Comments
Challenge: Fireworks VI (Expert Editing)
Collection: Challenges
Camera: Olympus OM-D E-M5
Lens: Panasonic Lumix G VARIO 35-100mm f2.8
Location: Houston, TX
Date: Jul 4, 2013
Aperture: 6.3
ISO: 200
Shutter: 1.5 Seconds
Date Uploaded: Jul 5, 2013

4 exposures to fill the frame. The main exposure looked pretty good, but I thought I should take advantage of the Expert editing rules, so I filled the empty space with bursts from 2 other images.

Shot through a window in an office building off downtown Houston. Pretty good vantage point and great elevated angle. Was able to keep the room dark enough to eliminate any reflections.

Thanks for the votes and the comments. Barely hung on to the 7. It's been a while since I've made the front page. Nice to know I can still bring it once in a while!

Since this was expert, very silly of you to do that top border thing, and not just clone in some sky...

Still, one of the better images in the challenge IMO.
