Well your gun powder and wood explosive was a hit here. The colors seem a bit bland though you should have adjust your white balance in your camera. Otherwise I think this is a wonderful shot.

This is really cool. Nice job. I have no clue how you got the exposure right on this....it must have been rough.

I like the orange smoke plume, very ethereal. The light streaks at the bottom are interesting too. Nicely captured.
