Wow, I can't believe there are no people on that dock to watch the fireworks. You had a great seat. Looks like a good show.

not sure if I like the colors on the bridge...it is truly a direct reflection? or is it very altered...your fireworks are special...those are some of the best fireworks I have seen on this site...but I am not sure about the red...
  Photographer found comment helpful.

The colors seem a little harsh, although perhaps there was nothing you could do about that. The composition is excellent though!

Great colors
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/13/2009 04:03:34 PM
wonderful fireworks image, but the foreground is a bit distracting. maybe a tighter crop at the bottom and rotate slightly to left would work well here
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/13/2009 03:16:11 PM
Very interesting abstract color
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/13/2009 02:02:01 PM
Great color and textures!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/13/2009 12:17:23 PM
hard subject to get just right, this really works
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/13/2009 11:21:46 AM
Intricate and fascinating, but the bottom line is it doesn't move me much. One thing I do find interesting is it's not every day you see a fireworks shot that's half-foreground and without reflections... You made it into my top-seed group (7) but in the end didn't get bumped from there.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/13/2009 07:29:09 AM
wow, awesome fireworks capture, I like how it fills the whole sky, and the color of the water is really cool
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Beautiful colors
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Voted earlier coming back to comment now. Holy cow that is an impressive amount of fireworks going off! Must have been really something to see...and most assuredly very loud too:-) Love the capture that showcases these fireworks like flowers in full bloom. The time exposure really worked in capturing this gem. Brilliant white blooms bursting out and up off of the deep reds we see dominating the bottom half of the image. Colors are bold and vibrant.

The red is a bit harsh. But nice capture.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 08:46:57 PM
Wonderful capture! Well composed and the overpowering of the red really adds to the firework feel
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 08:04:14 PM
Whee! The explosions are nicely balanced.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 03:58:02 PM

nice shot
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 12:10:37 PM
Looks like a magnificent firework! All the red colors looks a little unnatural, but perhaps it's just the way it was.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 02:45:54 AM
Wonderful capture.

I think a little more contrast might work.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

SO fun! I love the almost duotoned look of this, it is very different from your typical fireworks shot.
