Thematic Photographic 28: "Bright" v.3.0 Fireworks Finale

"Fireworks Finale"

I liked this shot, but it wasn't a "typical" fireworks shot, so I'd been waiting for the right time to use it. I think that would be now. Very few things are as bright as fireworks, and those are never brighter than during the finale of the display. And with a long exposure the brightness is ... well, you can see.

Hi Mojo!
This is stunning! One more to put on my favorites list! :-)

My goodness, I have missed so much since I was away. I will be back to catch up with you. I see you have some great shots as I scrolled quickly.

Oh Mojo - I love this shot. Fireworks bring me to my knees as it is. The foreground of trees here sillhouetted by the pyrotechnics display is awesome.

I'm so glad you're not into "typical" anything!

I love this shot...the way the thinner traces define the margins.

Part of me also thinks I'm witnessing the destruction of the fireworks factory :)

Either way, the choice of composition - burned-in foreground trees - is masterful.
