Nice picture - I like how you got some foreground (especially recognizable stuff) in the picture. I think what makes this shot for me is the canoers in the red reflection. 9

I think it the tear drops below the red plume that make this shot for me. Kind of resembles tears of blood from all the fighting America has done to remain a free country. Nice work! 9 -danny

beautiful photo! i love the contrast of lighting colors on the river and the two boats. great composition!...10

Wow!!! Outstanding capture! This picture is very well balanced, even with the empty space in the upper left. I love the way the two small boats are caught by the reflections in the water from their respective light sources. Also, that's one hell of a fireball fireworks! Almost seems to be a UFO out of Strange Encounters of the Third Kind. Are you sure that it's not really abducting earthlings? :) Excellent job!

Nice shot. I love the effect of the double-burst, the reflection on the water, and the boats out there showing people enjoying it - all add up to a lovely photo! The monument is a nice touch, too, though my attention goes first to the fireworks and their reflection.

nicely framed image. i like the silohuette of the branches up top.

This is a beautiful fireworks shot. You captured the lights at just the right moment and I love the framing with the memorial on the left.

I'll start off by saying that I like this shot, so my comments don't seem negative. I like all of the elements; fireworks, architecture, kayakers in the water. By eyes do seem to bounce between the building and the fireworks looking for a primary subject or a relationship. Developing a relationship between the two by position within the frame or line might help make a really good shot great. thanks for the enjoyable piece of work.

Beautiful picture, I love the composition.

This is one of the best fireworks photos I've ever seen. I love the moment you captured and the use of thirds. The boat in the red reflection just makes this so romantic. WONDERFUL photo !

My favourite of all the firework shots in this challenge. You've captured this one excellently. Awesome colors - 10!

A tigher cropping of the fireworks with the kayakers in the foreground would have made for a better composition. I find the lights on the bridge and building to the left to bright and distracting.
07/09/2003 06:25:28 AM
Very well constructed photo - well done.
07/09/2003 01:52:00 AM
Your composition is good, the building on the left adds a lot.
