This was the first image shown to me at voting... My heart sank thinking that they were all going to be this good and mine would really stink.

Fortunately, for you and for me, this is one of the best of the crowd. *grin*

Congrats!

One of my favorites, beautiful!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Very well composed. It shows the fireworks within its natural element, the city scape... rather than just showing the fireworks in the sky with no point of reference. I'd say this is the winner 1st place.

This should do very well. Incredible clarity and unbelievable detail. Love the little puff of smoke off to the left. One of the best.
