I got/get the palm tree and gave this image a 6 during voting. Fireworks images are tough and this one is a fairly good capture, but the 'chop' at the top brings it down a few notches from where it needs to be.
Photograph Information, Technicals & Composition Review
Compositionally, the placement within the frame isn't accentuating the capture, in my opinion. I can see the crop dilemma and indeed any rotate to straighten dilemma. Depends what you had to work with. At the end of the day, this will still be an image of fireworks, so will not hold many peoples attention too much, unless it really captures the 'art' of the display created by fireworks, which I think this one is on the right track to do.
Comments, Score & Placement Review
332/419 is fairly low down the pack, again, I presume because people are not that interested in seeing an image of fireworks, unless it really packs a punch and makes them stop and linger at the 'art' of it. 5.19 is a fairly good score for a Free Study.
Your one commenter also saw your vision.
I wonder whether a bolder crop and trying to create more of an artwork from the display, may have given this a little extra - alas you'd still be left with the chop dilemma.
