Itís a few hours before rollover and Iím real pleased with both the score and the comments, Iím now hoping for a top 5 finish.
I just wanted to show the same scene from a couple of hours earlier. I entered this shot ' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/0-999/960/120/751978.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/0-999/960/120/751978.jpg', '/') + 1) . ' in the free study as a last minute idea and was pleasantly surprised at the result.

Thanks for viewing

This is very awesome! The water turns it from what would have been a great photo anyway -- to something truly outstanding.

It's a good reflection shot. No smoke visible on the water. A shorter title would have worked.

love the red in the dark sky, as well as the reflection in the water.

for a literal interpretation of the challenge, I must say it is a really nice; decent balance and good interest. What sells it though is that beautiful blue and green skyline reflection. and the attempt at a deep purple tie-in.

I'm too picky for my own good, but those lyrics are reversed. (I promise that did not influence my vote!) 8

Nice shot. The vivid red border distracts away from the subject. :~)

Great photo... I think I would maybe have cropped to center the firework. This may have added more impact.

Also, isn't it 'Smoke on the water, fire in the sky' :-)

It is amazing how that red border brings so much to this photo...

Interesting and different, a kind of minimalistic firework, works well with the reflection and the curved horizon
