    A lot of people seem to really like this shot, for me, it didn't quite turn out the way I had wanted it but I guess it's still cool. Would be interested to hear some honest opinions.

    This was a 20 sec exposure with two roman candle fireworks at each side of the frame, and city lights across the lake in the background.

    On my work PC at the moment and don't have exif data, but from memory it was approx:
    20 sec exposure
    canon 17-85 IS USM @ 20mm
    f/11
    ISO 400

    Maybe someone with an exif viewer can confirm that though.

    there's one spark that looks like it bounced off the surface of the water.
    cool shot.

    I like the idea! There's something off about the colors for my taste, like they could use some darkening and saturation. Also the water in the foreground has an odd color cast to it... I find myself wishing that the foreground water was black.

    Very cool idea, though! Maybe a little more monkeying around in post would really bring it to life!

    Yeah, there was a big orange street light to the left and behind the camera, which is why you can see the water lit up funny at the front. It initially bugged me, but I'm not sure if I mind it now, it kinds of adds another element to the shot.

    I love the shot, I just find myself wishing that it was shot with a wider angle.

    Night fireworks shots are always neat.
    Yours is a bit unique with the symmetry.
    I like but hesitate to put in 'great' category.
