I had a great opportunity to go down to Laguna Beach for yesterdays fire works. I thought I would bring my camera just in case. I got there and went out on their patio and you could see 180-degree view of the ocean. Just after dinner I set up shop on the roof of the house. Forgetting my tripod I used the chimney to steady my shot and waited.

Great shot! Its tilted to the left a bit, and it acts as a distraction. Other than that, its great.

The lighing in this shot strikes me as post-apocalyptic; it's a great look, with the fire and smoke and shroud of darkness.

Different--interesting--I feel I am there watching it. Great shot!

Well done. I like the context of the bay better than just showing a burst. In a weird way it looks like a scene from Blade Runner. The burst on the right is a bit blown out which is a bit distracting. And the horizon is tilted. Without those distractions, this would be a 10. Still worth a very good score.

Beautiful. Great place to take the photo from and well executed. Slightly spoiled by the crooked horizon, I would have rotated it slightly clockwise. Nice job though, I'm giving you a 7.
