Captured in a fireworks show in my hometown, & it is another handheld shot with 3 seconds of exposer...
Liked the atmosphere with the crowd in ground who are appeared here in silhouettes.

A very interesting creative photo. It is a real piece of art. The best silhouette I have seen for a long time. Very well captured by steady hands and a brilliant eye.

Bonjour, cher Subhendu,
Encore une image emplie de poésie. Un regard de photographe très apprécié.
Très bonne journée.

a clever shot this and one that it is not easy to get right, but this works perfectly. Love the almost alien audience silhouetted against the golden fountain of sparks. Wonderful!
Regards - Brian.

Namaste mon ami. Ici, le titre convient parfaitement à l'image. On dirait vraiment une fontaine de feu. Les formes humaines en ombres chinoises sont superbes.

Another spectacular fountain of fire. I think the slightly blurred silhouettes are almost as impressive as the fireworks. These dark, silent onlookers have a very strong impact on me. The fireworks wouldn't have had the same effect without them. This is in any case a very well composed photo and well taken at 3 seconds.

hi subhendu. just for a moment i thought you had been to the magic fountains in barcelona :) wow, 3 sec.s handheld is crazy, and you trust the quality so much that you post the photo in big size! c'mon, you should have used a kind of support to get these pin sharp sprays of water! also the blurry souls are fantastic. compliments!

A simple image to look at but a difficult shot to take. Great light control here. Splendid work

Stunning shot!!. Nice choice of framing. The people in the FG seems to be getting drenched in the shower of fire. Superb shot!!

Really a splendid picture here with the golden fountain and the people at FG as mere silhouettes
Bravo, very well done

you've captured the scene in a magical way, this really looks like a fountain of fire and the silhouettes of the people evoke wonder and awe at the spectacle. At some points, silhouettes and fiery patterns seem to merge. The black backdrop exalts the graphism; the texture, colour and well managed luminosity of the "fountain" are mesmerising. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great day,

This capture of fireworks is a masterpiece, all the more if you didn't use a tripod ! So bright, clear and near ! Did you use a zoom ?
Great composition with the silhouettes against the explosion of light ! It's easy to guess how mesmerized those people are !
In France, we often call fireworks "Bengale Fires". I wonder what the origin of the expression is ?

I like this Subhendu - the soft silhouettes work well here giving the feel for the crowd watching the display without being too hard-edged ... much more artistic and impressionistic. The burst of fireworks add excellent movement and dynamism to the shot. Clever you... this is far more that a perfect record of a firework display, it has a real creative edge. Warm regards rosemary

Une création très originale à partir de ce feu d'artifice. Les têtes des spectateurs au premier plan créent un bel effet.

beautiful,magical and working on our imagination composition!
Truly delightful shot!
I like your idea of it and perfect execution-pure imaginary!
Have a nice day

Namaste, my friend Subhendu,
this is a great capture of the fireworks, where you have created a powerful image with the effect of the light in contrast with the black background and the dark silhouettes of people in foreground.
I like the reached result, is an a bit abstract and very graphical composition.
A beautiful work.

Truly artistic post here taken with an excellent technique to achieve such an outstanding view. Beautiful one! Well done!

Merveilleux spectacle des jets d'eau dorés de la fontaine avec les silhouettes des personnes, c'est très beau a voir
fotka (3181) 2013-11-23 6:05
What a wonderful clever composition! I like the blurred silhouetted persons in the foreground and fireworks in perfect clarity in the background.
Great fireworks shot, congratulations.
Have a nice weekend,

I wonder how hands of stone pressed the shutter!
It's really amazing a shot!
The ghostly spectators and the springs of light.
How did you estimate the shutterspeed that would exactly match the speed of the spray, so that the fire-lines are not blurred... is beyond my imagination.
I say 'amazing' again in terms of technique as well as imagination.
Thank you Subhendu for this "Fire" work.
