From the Critique Club:

As I said in my original comment, it's kinda too bad that there is so much of the building in the shot. It kinda overpowers the whole subject of the image which to me is the fireworks. Other than that, this is still a very nice composition.

Technical notes: It appears as I look closer that you desaturated the building. I am wondering why you would do this? Is it to give more attention to the fireworks themselves? I'm not sure that this really adds to the shot and the more I look at it, the more distracted I am by it. I notice that you shot in bulb mode. It appears to me that you are a touch overexposed. Your fireworks are mostly blown out. I had the same issue with my entry. You can tell that the fireworks are blown by the lack of color and by the dullness of the color that is left.

All in all a very nice shot and a decent score for a speed challenge!

The building really makes this picture unique, and gives an interesting composition.

Nice capture of what was visible from your viewpoint; your title sums it up well.

so much taken off it would have been better if you moved so the bank was over to the left only the bb&t sine just off the side and showing more of the fireworks but still nice idea planned ahead and got a good shot

Good Title. Nice Capture. Too Bad the bank blocked your view of the show.

Funny title...but it would be a better piece of art without the BB&T on the building...with advanced you can clone that out...the rest of the shot is gorgeous...love the work you did on it...9
