Hi, Kari. Congratulations on your 500th post. I like the good contrasts here between the silhouettes of the people and the trees and the bright colours of the fireworks. Your POV gives us the impression we are sharing the spectacle with the other people present.

I just had Jean Yves at 1000, but that you are also on such a high number i didn't know. Means you are didicated, i like that.
I think you kept this picture hidden for this small celabration. The fireworks are good exposed...not that easy, but you did well on this one.
I think the next 500 will also be on their way ;-)

I looked yesterday in your collection and saw that #500 was to come pretty soon and I wondered what it will be. Well, there it is and the sparkling trhough the trees are certainly a good clue to what else will be coming as the next 500. It certainly will be as surprising as sparkling as your previous 499.
I'm not quite sure, but looking into your settings I have to believe that this was a handheld shot, otherwise it wouldn't make sense to have such a hich ISO and low f/. Right?

Happy 500th !!! Of course this does fit best in a celebration week !!!
The capture of the light explosion is fine, exp comp helped you not to burn highlights, the branches are a bit too intrusive but superb result for a handheld shot, when I tried fireworks this summer in Basel I had my tripod, but not easy at all within the crowd, there's always someone bumpunig into the tripod in the darkness...
Have a nice day JY
