This is a good nightshot and great fireworks capture. I like the dark people and the reflection in the water of the fireworks.

Congrats Nyki on your first ribbon! It's very exciting! Lovely shot... fireworks made so much more interesting, and more appropriate for the challenge by the simple addition of people! Congrats again...

Nice job with the silhouettes. Very exciting shot and yes, fireworks are "nights out" on the town. 8

Exciting. The use of sepia was perfect. I normally do not like borders but this one fits.

Very nice...water is pretty. Almost one fountain per person!

Nice composition. Why duotone? See my rant in the forum. Color would have added points. 6
07/13/2003 12:55:01 PM
Very nicely captured rich and smooth duotones. I also like the silhouetted crowd in the foreground. The way you''ve captured the fireworks is really good. Excellent work.

The fireworks are overused in the challange, and they get kinda boring.
07/12/2003 12:25:10 AM
Pretty! Great lighting.

Very good contrasts. I'd like to see it in color too. Nice shot.

the sepia works well in this shot. great silohuette use. the people really make this picture for me. what's a night out of town without people. :o)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/11/2003 12:02:19 AM
great night shot...I like the fact you desaturated the image. The folks watching from one side of the lake? make this picture come to life and what a great fireworks display. you brought this together very well. 10

Brilliant composure here, and the silhouettes are exquisite. Lovely! 8.

I think for a fireworks shot to work in this challenge, it's important to include people enjoying them. You did that well by including the silhouettes in the foreground. I'd like to see this in color, although the tan tones does have a cool feel to it.

Very interesting, I like the silouettes at the bottom...

One of the best fireworks pic of this challenge: reflections in water, the people 's silhouettes, choice of duotone, composition...
Great picture.

What a pleasant change - a monochrome fireworks image! A brave move and well done.

I like the silhouettes, IMO they make the picture, and the black and white. good job.

Great shot! Love the sepia, fireworks a great, and the silouete of the people in the foreground. Water refelctions are excellent also. 8.

Very nice capture. The rockets look a little like white christmas trees lit up at night. Great composition and capture of detail.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

This is a beautiful capture... I simply love the silhouetted peoplein the foreground of this shot... It reminds me quite a bit of Gordon's 'bellagio' submission a while back in that aspect... I also think your choice of a duotone in this image also works very well... great shot... = 10

This one of the better fireworks shot that I have seen in this challenge. Good work adding people in the foreground to give a sense of depth to the shot. Nice work.

oh wow! this is beautiful! the framing is great and the exposure is perfect! definitely a winner....10

The sheen and ripples have texturized the water surface like a glossy pavement. nice contrasts... B/W is seldom effective for fireworks (to my taste), but this one's an exception.
