This will be my final posted photo from the fireworks in Vancouver during the Canada Day Celebrations, but I will add another in the WS.
I'm expecting to see a few more firework photo's in the next few days because its the 4th of July celebration in America.
Living in Vancouver, Seattle is only a 2 hour drive south. My plan was to drive down and capture the fireworks because they shoot out of the top of the Seattle Space Needle - a subject i've posted before here on TE.
Unfortunately I'm working Night shift and I can't get out of it! But I do hope to see other American TE members post some shots :)
I chose this photo because of the reds, a total contrast to the blue color of my previous post.
Having a remote shutter really helped, it made a drastic difference in timing and final execution. In my firework photo shoot last year I didn't have this remote and it proved to be difficult to time the long draping effect. So if you're out there planning, please get a remote for your camera, and they're cheap too :)
Happy 4th of July to our American TE friends!!

A well exposed image of these splendid fireworks. I like the way yo have framed the shot with fireworks nicely balanced by the lit buildings on the right. Superb colours and sharpness.

Congratulations with the day, as you say ton Norwegians on May 17... These fireworks look very impressive and you were indeed lucky to capture these beautiful stars.
ikeharel (62159) 2013-07-03 10:09
Stunning light over water, fireworks in fantastic 4 sec. exp., well collected.
Nice one-day-ahead to July 4th greeting's, but for Canada day.
kasianowak (7501) 2013-07-03 10:11
Great timing! I like the balanced composition with the action happening on one side and the beautiful night skyline on the other. Beautiful colours and the silhouettes of the boats against the red reflections create an additional point of interest.
jemaflor (88825) 2013-07-03 11:40
Bravo ! Very good pov and perfect timing to take this red fireworks, Well managed, tfs with this red sea ...
PaulVDV (24191) 2013-07-03 11:41
The fireworks are captured on the perfect place on the picture. Very beautiful how the dark water is illuminated vivid red.
I also like the nocturnal view of the skyline.
Best regards, Paul

Hi Craig another two pretty photos of the fireworks for the canada day. I like the much all photos, that have pretty colors and light control management.
thanks for the pretty work.
Romano46 (18472) 2013-07-03 11:57
una foto fantastica per un evento particolare.
Una situazione non facile da gestire, ma che tu hai saputo dominare nella migliore delle maniere con risultato eccellente sia per tempismo che per nitidezza e colore.
Ciao e buona serata
krzychu30 (15510) 2013-07-03 12:20
superb compliment to your previous shot!
Vancouver´s skyline is spectacular in itself,but here with all these fireworks looks really amazing!Another thing that attracts my attention is the red coloured water on the left side of the shot-gives great color contrast to the rest of the composition.
Excellently composed and executed shot!
Wish You all the best
mjw364 (7516) 2013-07-03 14:46
Another cool low light shot, Craig
It's almost like you asked the pryo-technicians to choreograph the show just for you! Good timing on a four sec exposure to get those starbursts just right.
carlo62 (38094) 2013-07-03 15:17
un'altra bella immagine di questi festeggiamenti.
Colgo l'occasione anch'io per salutare gli amici americani per la festa del 4 luglio.
Un'esposizione fantastica ed un risultato bellissimo.
Kugart (1778) 2013-07-03 15:35
Another excellent shot of this fireworks display in Vancouver. The lighting on the water is exceptional and great composition. Can't wait until Halloween to get a chance to try some shots of fireworks myself.

In my opinion this photo is a bit better than the previous one but the previous photo is very good, too of course. I like the red area/lights and a red colouring.
Indrasish (2893) 2013-07-03 20:01
Great night shot here.. awesome light management.. We have a traditional program in India namely "Diwali" like this.. Good composition and superb image quality too..
Very well done and good morning from India..
jjcordier (78390) 2013-07-03 22:44
Une (deux même!)autre très belle réussite. Tu as su choisir le lieu idéal pour photographier ce feu d'artifice et obtenir ces beaux reflets. L'exposition est parfaite.
emka (85311) 2013-07-03 23:21
Amazing red hour here in Canada Day. fantastic composition, not only fireworks, shown in excellent way, but also the skyline of Vancouver and the red sea. stunning picture.
kordinator (19888) 2013-07-04 0:44
I much like to play with the light and colors of the night mixed with artificial light.
Excellent work with a lot of nice details.
The dynamic images.
Have a great day.
jhm (143539) 2013-07-04 3:45
I believe your second picture very well with the blue colours, I like these picture excellent.
Notwithstanding also these picture is wonderful with this firework
Composition and presentation are amazing.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice day,

Il y a de quoi célébrer. Nous vivons tout de même dans un des meilleurs pays du monde, même si la politique actuelle me dérange un peu. Ici, j'aime comment tu fais rougir les nuages.
Sonata11 (33641) 2013-07-04 10:41

Kind regards, Barbara

chrisvek (7001) 2013-07-04 14:54
Wow.So wonderful image with splendid colors and great lightning usage.Very nice POV and framing.Very nice details.
All the best
siudzi (34131) 2013-07-05 2:00
Oh, this one is charming due to a superb palette of colors reflected on the water! Love it! Perfectly seen and executed image with a very well managed exposure and sharpness. Bravo!
sandpiper (6788) 2013-07-06 4:56
I admire a good fireworks shot, I have no luck with the ones I try :)
Great composition, lovely colours and good sharpness
marina7 (8055) 2013-07-07 11:06
a capture amazing in its clarity and sharpness. Composition-wise almost perfect too (the upper part is half a centimeter shy of perfection, lol))
I doubt I will see any fireworks until New Year's Day so I envy you in this respect. Great job you've done here.
delpeoples (54727) 2013-07-07 23:27
I never get tired of fireworks photos especially when they're as kick a*se as this one. The sea of red is a visual feast and once again you've exposed the image perfectly, dealing with the extremes of strong light and dark areas so effortlessly. Top job. Have a great time in Vegas - I can tell you'd been suffering withdrawal symptoms from it. Because its so long since your last holiday ;) hahahaha. Come back safe and with lots of great photos!
mkamionka (32367) 2013-07-09 0:03
another spectacular capture of the fireworks. I like the city skyline with some characteristic features. Perfect POV chosen allowed you to place the fireworks next to the panorama without obstructing the view. This must have been really well thought through!
Very impressive work, congratulations!
elenimavrandoni (14209) 2013-07-12 10:34
Craig, soon I will use your beautiful picture to celebrate my birthday!!
fantastic, exciting and marvelous colors in a a great festive and celebrating mood composition...my kind of mood these days..
josepmarin (57885) 2013-07-12 12:33
Hi, my friend Craig,
I like this firework shot, which you have executed skilfully.
The excellent management of exposure gives a splendid achievement into the ensemble, the light, colors and reflections provide a high aesthetical quality in the composition.
A superb work.
Graal (99806) 2013-07-12 23:01
great shot! View is beautiful. Fine caught moment. Amazing "flowers" of fireworks. Well done photos by night. WS is good, too. I like it a lot.
Have a nice day.
kato (11630) 2013-07-13 19:20
You're capturing well this firework scene by a good timing and very excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the fireworks of full fire, Vancouver night's cityscape and, the bay dyed to red. It's impressive in many sightseeing boats for fireworks on bay, too. The whole is balanced well by a good arrangement and excellent color combination.
Cricri (110683) 2013-07-14 11:12
Fantastique celle ci, la ville pleine de lumière, l'explosion du feu d'artifice , comme des fleurs dans le ciel sombre, j'aime le reflet rouge, belle version aussi en XS, mais le top est celle ci plus attrayante :-)
ourania (35890) 2013-07-15 6:51
both of your celebratory firework pictures are magnificent, the fireworks are beautiful, dynamic and stunningly well defined. I chose to write you about this one because I love how the fireworks are flying over a broad and amazingly clear nocturnal cityscape, brightening it and making a real difference in its atmosphere. This picture is very elegant and has a very delightful warmth. Congrtulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great day,
