    new camera, new to these forums, just playing around. I'm not sure if I like this photo or not, it seems strange to have something normally known for vivid colors to be in b&w, but that may add to it. I'd be interested in what others think.

    really unique, great idea... its always fun to look at how you would normally shoot a certain subject then completely do the opposite. great job being creative :p

    I think that the B&W helps it be a good photo. You've also got a great composition there imo and an interesting foreground (but not tooo interesting), and a perfect exposure. All those things add up to make this wonderful B&W. It truly is different. But I'm not sure it would work on all firework shots.
    Nice work! And welcome to the forum!

    Thanks for the remarks everybody.

    Thanks Meysha, I took about 250 shots that night, of which about 30 turned out decent IMO, but there were two that I thought worked better in B&W. I'll put the other one up here later.
