Belvoir Castle hosts a firework competition and display every year, this is the first i managed to get to, and loved it, got loads of images despite not having an idea where the fireworks would be coming from and how large etc.

But could not make my mind up on which to choose so went for the one with the most going on, i hope this doe not translate into messy rather then drama.

virtually no processing as basic other then crop shadow / highlight and sharpen.


amazed at how well this image did!! dead happy! score was high 6's at start of week but then dropped like a stone :( but really set me on a roll now for getting some more shots! Thanks

I am really sad this did not ribbon, more so that it missed the top ten by one! Congrats though!

You have captured the dramatic feeling of the finale! I can feel the fireworks in my chest as I look at this picture. A definite 10!

Amazing and beautiful! I hardly notice the castle, but it really adds to the "wow" factor! (you don't find that sort of thing in Kansas :)
