My two kids celebrating the end of 2011 on Botany Bay. The only personal fireworks weíre permitted by law to have is the humble sparkler. But donít the kids just love them!

Iíve used a bit of a heavy hand with the Topaz in this image to try and add vibrancy. Iíve also used quite a bit of vignetting to try and bring the eye towards the kids. I like the effects and the emotion of this image. Iím probably alone with this though.

Simple, snapshotty, yet certainly conveys the message.

I really like this one. I wish the boy's face was a little more in focus, but this really screams "Celebration". Congratulations on such a nice photo.

just a little underexposed for me like the feel and movement but would like more detail from a bounced fill flash etc
