All the best,

whats really interesting about this photo are the puffs of red smoke. I think when we watch fireworks, we don't see that smoke like we do here in the close-up.
even at 1/4 of a second, its long enough to have that nice visual effect.
Selmik (3366) 2012-04-25 15:17
beautiful shot of this difficult event, great colors and clarity.
pierrefonds (64768) 2012-04-25 15:27
The subject is well framed. Using an ISO of 80 and a slow shutter speed are allowing me to see the details and colors of the fireworks. They also have a special effect on the colors. Have a nice day.

Magnifique feu d'artifice, la gerbe de la fusée jette de toutes parts des couleurs du plus bel effet.
Merci également pour la photo présentée en atelier.
Exercice difficile à réaliser.

Good MOrning Ike,
I just love this!
It explodes from the screen and we can almost see movement as the white streams head towards the corners, leaving behind the dense red smoke!It is a fine symbol of the joy of festival.
Have another lovely day,
jhm (150742) 2012-04-26 2:17
Congratulations with the 64th Independence of Israel, I know of the first years of your country with the English soldiers in the area.
Firework makes you better with a tripod and 5seconds exposure time Ike, but I like your picture lovely with the colors.
Very well done, TFS.
adramad (44296) 2012-04-26 2:53
Congratulations on the celebration and my wishes for peace and understanding be the common denominator.
The image is wonderful explosion of colors and you captured their most magnificent moment, very difficult to photograph fireworks, so my sincere congratulations on a job so splendid.
I love it.
Have a nice day.
All the best.

with this beautiful photo of the fireworks you celebrate the 64th Anniversary of the State of Israel, but also you should celebrate your fourth Anniversary on TE.
This photo and both complementary ones in the WS are not an easy work, but you did it very well, they are a real explosion of light and of colors.

sempre difficile la ripresa dei fuochi d'artificio.
Buona la resa di questa tua immagine con il rosso che irrompe in maniera forte sull'inquadratura,
delpeoples (57264) 2012-04-26 23:09
Hello dear Ike
Happy birthday to your country and happy TE birthday to YOU! It's you're 4th right? What fun we've had. And hopefully there'll be many more years to come. You took a great photo, difficult to make tehnically, but really excellent in terms of colour and exposition. I like how the firework takes up the entire screen.
Thanks for sharing and AUGURI once again
paololg (31448) 2012-04-26 23:57

This is a really good one! I like the fireworks with that red smoke behind - it creates a very special effect and you managed well because fireworks are not always easy!

What a lovely 3D-like fire flower to celebrate that important day in Israel that blows out of my screen!
UlfE (14641) 2012-04-28 22:29
A really beautiful fire-works photo. The timing a exposure was pefect and I love the way it fills the frame. TFS and have nice Sunday!

Joli éclat de couleur, un merveilleux feu d'artifice pour fêter ce 64ème anniversaire de l'indépendance d'Israel, bel événement et superbe image comme celles présenter en WS
sacimar (26205) 2012-05-01 6:43
this is a good image of a firework, I like you focus on one, the visual effect is interesting, it's a different picture, well seen,
ciakgiak (30429) 2012-05-01 11:32
splendida immagine, momento colto con grande tempismo, l'effetto-esplosione è stupendo, foto molto spettacolare.
Un caro abbraccio
jmdias (62901) 2012-05-17 16:14
my city was founded in 1948 too.
very beautiful detail of these fireworks, I tried to take shots like this but I ever got weak results, maybe it will be better with my new camera,haha.
very nice the colors and lines, good sharpness and sense of moment.
mirosu (16031) 2012-08-01 10:09
A wonderful shot. Excellently "frozen" firework action. Excellent light effect, perfect motion capture. Well done.
jcpix (13908) 2012-11-17 18:45
Not always an easy thing to capture, fireworks can be quite challenging but you've managed to do so with clarity so as create a very nice image. I like the fact that it's a tight composition, it really fills the frame in every direction and has that ever bold red color, but not overpowering. Great exposure to grab all of the details. You obviously have other things of more importance happening at this point in time, but I hope that TE helps you escape from that for at least a little bit. Be well Ike!
NorthernLight (2383) 2013-09-23 2:41
wow - what a great shot.
I wish you a wonderful day!
mcmtanyel (21323) 2014-01-17 12:24
So, April 25th is Israel's independence day. Congratulations on your steady hands and timely response, fireworks are so difficult to catch.

sehr gute PrÃ¤sentation des Feuerwerkes, gut gemacht!
ChrisJ (111572) 2016-01-10 12:31
Very effective tight framing on the single red fireflower, with excellent graphic elements against the dark nocturnal sky. The radial pattern is well captured. Tfs!
