Hi Shailesh! Congrats on making page one! I liked this shot because it gave the fireworks a context, a sense of place and event. If I have to nitpick, the horizon isn't quite level and I would prefer that the top of the fireworks not be cut off. I grew up around Bloomington and I don't recognize this location, where is it?

very good. the water reflections are always very attracting and i really like the bridge there and the slight misty smoke rising from it.

Great photo, good composition showing scale.

Very pretty. Love how it goes from the bottom all the way up and then reflects in the water. The bridge is a nice foreground to and the little fireworks going off in the back add interest. Nice one!

A gem of an image, great exposure and composition. I would have liked to see the explosion in this shot (your trails reveal that the shutter was opened a hair after the explosion), still one of the best entries. Bump.

Just wonderful! Placing the bridge there (with the reflection) makes this shot!

Nice reflections in the water! Would have liked to see the full explosion of the firework that got cut off at the top, but nice picture.

Damn, nice shot. Too bad your horizon is crooked or this would be the bomb!
