It's a black posterboard cutout of the Atlanta skyline in front of a metal grinder. I held metal to the grinder and took one million, three hundred seventy-two thousand, six hundred and two shots to get one that looked like fireworks.

Ok, maybe I exaggerated just a smidgeon on the number of shots. *grin*

Couldn't find a sparkler anywhere in the entire town... *sigh*

Cool photo, but you know if you had used sparklers behind it you might not have had to take as many photos to get it right, maybe just nine hundred thirty three thousand, four hundred and sixty two. Just saying. :)

Looks like a lot work! I like the "fireworks" and the star effect it created.

I really can't tell what this is. It's a pretty cool image though.

Awesome shot; I look for ones like this, this shows thought and artistic talent. This is a 10 and there is no question, all the viewer has to do is look... good luck

Lovely idea. But the blurred edges don't work for me.
