[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Hapy New Year to you all.
I have started taking photos almost two years ago, using my Nikon D40. But my photos were never reviewed by a third person.
I love to capture fireworks. I noticed the street lights always cause a bit of distraction. In downtown Auckland it's hard to get a location without this distraction. I have shot about 90 snaps in the ten minute duration.

Hi Sudesh - firstly, and most importantly, welcome to Treklens :-) I hope you enjoy your time here, it can be a fun site and there are some good photographers here who have useful advice...and others who just like to use the word "amazing" and hope you'll return the favour :-)

Anyway, I do think there is the makings of a good image here, but it has been posted too small to really enjoy the detail. This seems to be about 50kb, whereas you can post up to 300kb. I'm not sure what software you use, but Irfanview is free to download and is good for resizing and sharpening images before posting online.

The general composition here looks good, some nice colours and movement in the fireworks, but just a little on the small size to fully appreciate. Welcome again :-)

Hi Sudesh - welcome to Treklens
So you were up at midnight last night - I watched this scene on TV - it looked great.
And you have posted a good photo here, with good colours and shapes, even though it is a bit too small. I agree with Richard (Kilted Arab) about Irfanview. And Photofiltre is abother good software that is also free to download.
