jejeje! Takes a lot of courage to put "Reykjavik" in your title; like painting a bullseye on your back :-) Sweet shot, and good luck with it!

I love the lighting on the building and the long exposure effect. Maybe a little less foreground (maybe crop a bit off the bottom?) would help draw even more attention to it?

Nice shot, two things though, I would have liked this better with about half of the foreground and more of the sky, tilted back a little and secondly, the image would appeal more to me if the sky was a bit more dark and contrasty, seems a bit too gray for my taste.

Excellent, nice building in the foreground to give it some depth.

Lovely fireworks. Very nice how the building is lit in colors, too.

I think there's too much of the dark hill in the shot. It distracts from the subject somehow.

That's pretty darn stunning!!!!

Good choice of motive, the framing could have been better with a higher aiming of the camera, leaving less foreground. Not bad, 6 from me. Happy new year and good luck.
