Photographer’s Notes
Our neighbors sitting on their dock watching the local fireworks display. They are 20 years older than my wife and I and we’re old enough to have two grand children. I love how fireworks appeal to all ages!

Greetings from the Critique Club!

Hehe, you got em good, Doc...both a very patriotic celebration, and great choice of emotive sing title to go along perfectly with the image. Love the lightwash on the water, the people have their hoodies up so we can't see their faces but that adds some mystique to them. The fireworks are off-centre, while usually they are centres, but here they are balanced by the darkness split by the moon and stars on the right. Kind of makes us puny humans looks like we're trying to challenge the astral bodies with our own versions thereof.

Overall an interesting image and a well-deserved top ten!
