Looks almost like a nice flower! Great!

This is superb, it could easily be a dandelion or Allium. A great capture, well done!

Wow that's such a cool shot. I'm hoping to get a nice fireworks shot here in another few weeks with the 4th of July coming up. Great shot and thanks for sharing it with us.

seems black and white, aesthetic explosion, I like the centring, very good shot.

If you follow the rule and use a tripod, the photo won't be cool like that one! THat's why i often say... Rules are just suggestions.

And i admit i would probably show i firework in color. But in enjoy very much the B&W version... A lot! YOu can try to pretend it's a detail from a plant in a particuliar view and it would be very credible :)

Hi Jeff, a very good shot of these fireworks ! Looks amazing !


A verybeautiful one, Jeff!
Looks like a flower :)

Amazing shot! It is really beautiful. I thought at first it was sheared cactus plant. Then I read the title, "Fireworks".So i though you did protrusions of the firework flare. finally the note says nothing done to the photo. Amazing!

Hi Jeff:

This is a very beautiful shot; at first glance I thought it was a flower. Great photo. I also see that you recently switched to Canon 20D. I have one and went back to film (Canon 20d) but though I find the results more pleasing, I do miss the convinience of being able to make my pictures without waiting until a complete a roll of film. What are your thoughts on the 20D?
