Woo-hoo once more! My first ribbon!
I can't believe it - thank you so much, dpc-voters!!!!

This image was taken August 2008, while a summer festival firework took place at the Olympic site in Munich/Germany. I knew about the firework and went up to the television tower observation deck next to the olympic stadion several hours before it was supposed to happen, positioned my camera on a tripod and waited for the sky rockets (@ melethia: no drone ;-) - can't afford it!)
Really happy that my plan worked out!

What a perfekt start in my day (it's about seven in the morning where I live)! I wish you also a great day!

That was well worth getting there several hours before the event. That is an amazing shot. Congrats on getting a ribbon for this.

Since I reckoned without doing so well in this challenge I didn't offer an explanation in photographer's comments, which I really do regret now (and I don't know if and how I can add a comment subsequently, sorry). But here it is:

This is such a phenomenal shot, from the vantage point, to the subject, to the fact that this is a long shutter speed and SO clear.... So much to look at and love. Look at all those people!!!! I have a feeling I know who took this, but I'll wait til rollover to see if I'm right :)

An advantageous viewpoint makes for a great scene and an unusual opportunity to look down on fireworks, I also like the motion in the ferris wheel, should do well

Impressive point of view, with firework bursts captured at just the right moment to balance the composition. Hope your notes let us know how you managed to get this one.
