Just out on an evening shooting with my girlfriend. Then we saw people across the water shooting off fireworks so I took a picture.

Simple PP:
Raw convert
Levels(midtone+highlight bump)
Increase contrast
Dodge poles
Clone out annoying little sign on the dock
Neat Image
Smart Sharpen

I used my girlfriends dad's D2x for this, I loved it! I guess Nikon isn't so bad after all

Nice, but the bars on the left, right, and bottom are distracting.

Nice natural framing, albeit a bit dark, and cool colors from the lights. I'd suggest not placing the horizon right on the center line of the frame.

Pretty... I like how you framed it naturally. (not voting yet)

OK overall, but a muddy sky doesn't quite work...try a colour balance adjustment layer with a mask to bring out better tones in the sky
