Spectacular show! Is this the grand finale or a very long exposure of isolated explosions? :-)

Wow! It looks like Miami Beach up in the sky! I'm always completely impressed by fireworks photos.

I, on the other hand, believe foreground stuff tend to detract from a fireworks shot. I really like the first one. I am in awe. Well done.
