This one cracks me up. I do enjoy it, but for the reasons Cory gives it messes with my head too. The physics of it are SO screwed up... Congrats on HM.

A lot of beauty to look at.
Funny how some of the blasts appear to be curving UP.

A fairly well executed version of this type of image at first glance, however after inspecting this for a few minutes, I'm afraid that I've found it wanting in several respects.

The bursts have been rotated, leaving the effects of gravity all messed up.

As a result, the physics of this image are distracting to my eye, and it does diminish the enjoyment for me somewhat.

There is also a degree of varying sharpness here, and that is somewhat distracting as well.

Still, not a bad job, you certainly did create an image that most will, at first glance, find quite pleasing.
