beautitiful lighting and tones, almost looks like an illustration--this is on the top of my list. My only "beef" is that darn street lamp that keeps distracting. Great work.

If you spin the mouse wheel the colors look like live fireworks. :)

Awesome.

lovely composition, beautiful exposure.

Nice! love the longer exposure without making the people seem too blurry, I guess that's because they are mostly silhouetted (sp?) Great job! 8

Well chosen view of this frequently shot Icelandic masterpiece. The rear firework makes the shot and you've got some nice context. Some nice drama and possibly a ribbon I expect due to the eye candy on show.

Has a wonderful surreal quality about.

It's a nice picture, but I don't know how well it conveys "city life."

Beautiful fireworks, building, lights, and composition, with hints of people. Could hardly be better, and I like it a lot.

Very special moment, great shot, too bad about basic editing, the lampost on the left is a terrible eyesore..
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Beautiful colors on fireworks; building itself seems a bit unfocused and dark figures in FG vague, plus not so much of the 'city' here
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I was getting so sick of fireworks shots but this one is exceptional. Contrasts, hues and composition all work for me. Love the dark figures in the foreground, the crispness and spareness of the fireworks and particularly, the juxtaposition of the white center of the red firework and the glow of the cross (despite not being religious, haha). Also like how flat and painted the church looks, beautiful building too. Nice work.

Very cool shot. I so often see fireworks shots of just fireworks. It is so nice to see someone take a fireworks shot with some solid context like this fine example. And technically well done also. Nice job.

Gorgeous!!! Fabulous capture of fireworks. Nice and sharp and colorful. The foreground is a great choice, it seems the fireworks are decorating the building.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I really like the picture. The angles of the church and colors grabbed my attention. Upping the f/ some, may have eliminated your purple fringing on the lights, though can be hard to do with a night shot.

Amazed at how you combined the structure(cathedral/church?) with that of a celebratory moment. Nice!

Oh my, if you're not in the top 10 then I'll kill myself! Impressive, it's simply impressive... I see it and see it all over again, I swear I'm hipnotized...
The colors, the escence, the people... oh well, their silhouettes... A perfect 10 I must say...

Composition is ok. The choice of subject matter is ok. The image quality is ok. Has potential of being really creative. - 5
