Great capture. Contrasting tones really make this shot.

In this monotonous same-old-same-old bunch of entries, some, like yours, stand out for their thought and extra effort. I love it!

Seems to be too much of the orchestra in the shot. The fireworks get a little bit lost due to the bright foreground.

Is this in Spokane WA? I remember watching the fireworks there growing up at Riverfront Park right outside of the convention center and listening to the 1812. It's been one of my most favorite pieces of music since i was a child.

Great shot of this, not your typical fireworks shot so makes it very unique.

Very unique shot...I wish the crop was a little tighter so that there was less forground

nice idea wish i could see the fireworks more and wish it wasn't cut off and the band takes so much more attention than the firework which i think the fire work should be more of the subject but don't worry your's won't begin the first bunch under five
