Interesting fireworks shot. I assume that camera was handheld during exposure? I really like the composition and colors, especially the red/white/blue. Very nice work.

Nice fireworks shot. It's a little busy, but is better than most of the others I've seen entered. IMHO, I think it's cropped a bit too closely - takes away from the awe factor for me. 5

Amazing. The only thing I don't like is the small glare in the middle from what I guess is the initial explosion. But still, wow.

Great shot, but just a little predictive of a subject. One of the better fireworks shots though.

Great fireworks shot, and it will look even better outside of the challenge with some editing! A few things that I can't count against you for - some of the lens flare... great motion streams and great vibrant colors!!!! - 8 - JeB

Lovely fireworks display. Those are hard to capture and you did a good job. Nice frame accent. Composition is good with the bit of blue at the bottom left.
