Canada celebrated its 145th birthday yesterday. Tens of thousands come to downtown Ottawa to enjoy all the festivities every July 1. There are free concerts and street performers throughout the day and evening, all capped off with fireworks starting around 10pm.

beautiful night scenery and fantastic capture of the fascinating fireworks flying over the water. I love their forms and colours, their placement in the frame and their long and lovely reflections on the dark surface. A wonderful picture, congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great week,

Hello Caleb - I like the silky smooth blackness of the sky and water. It is a perfect backdrop to the colourful fireworks and their reflections. Additionally, I think you have a good balance in the shot with the fireworks being well positioned and offset by the lights of the steeples on the RHS. Nice little detail in the sky too. Warm regards rosemary

Happy Canada day to all the Canadians. A beautiful image of the fireworks in different colors exploding in the sky. I like the shimmering light in the water and the dark sky makes a perfect background.Nice view of the illuminated buildings. A nice sharp image.

Nice perspective on this patchwork of colours in a beautiful depth.

Caleb, great fireworks capture. Everything is placed perfectly in the frame, from the Parliament to the smoke wafting over it to the reflections in the water. Excellent choice for the exposure time as well; long enough to catch several fireworks, short enough to preserve a sense of immediacy.

Magnificent blue hour picture. The colors, lights and reflections are fantastic. Sharpness, exposure, pov, horizontal format and composition are all outstanding features here.
The place seems to be very attractive and it's even more beautiful in this picture because of its quality.
Have a nice week,

This is a very spectacular display of fireworks that have been very well arranged in the frame. How nice that you could take the picture across water and get those gorgeous silky reflections.
Kind Regards, Ann

This is once a year affair, it's a special event to celebrate the Day and I think you have done justice with this image. A spectacular display of fireworks and you've done a marvellous job of recording the event. Excellent viewpoint, the colorful bursts fit the frame perfectly contrasting strikingly against dark sky. Well composed and brilliant timing, love the feel of space and the impact and the the way you have got a few different elements in this shot and this really creates the true sensation of being at the show. Well done. TFS
