Found another photo of fireworks that I could crop for display. I must have been lucky taking these shots, as I had no idea what I was doing!! Again this is the celebration of the Guy Fawkes day in the U.K. after his attempt in 1605 to blow up the Houses of Parliament.

Well, be it luck or skill, this is a crack(l)ing shot all the same ;-) Nice colours and perfect black background. Good choice of shutter speed to show those light trail without any blur.

Another beautiful capture, with an abstract quality to it. The fireworks look like they're a wisp of feathers scattered through the air, all nice, light and airy.

Great capture of some beautiful “flowers” Joan. I think it is one of the best pictures of firework I have seen for a long time. Well done – especially as you did not know what you were doing :- )).

Good capture Joan. It can be seen how windy it was on the night by the swept trails. Very nice colours. Well exposed.

great cropping, great result! This could be a painting too. The deep dark black and the firing red make a fantastic contrast!

It had to be beautiful firework. The red detonation are wonderful and they made it a perfect composition. The red-black colour combination it is just exellent.

Magnificent fires! We would say a painting with this game of colours and forms which look like feathers. Excellent!
Magnifiques feux! On dirait une peinture avec ce jeu des couleurs et des formes qui ressemblent à des plumes. Excellent!
