honestly, i think the shot here would have been to use the lake as a reflecting surface for the fireworks that i assume were fired off somewhere around it.. did you take any of those??

best regards, dustin

yea.. thats what i was looking for.. nice job capturing the fireworks..

to me that is more interesting and dynamic than the shot here.. this shot really lacks a focal point as the building and the lights compete for attention.. when in doubt, simplify.. the less to compete with your subject the better.. then when you get really good at making the subject jump out at the viewer.. then you can start adding in secondary interests..

thanks for sharing, dustin

i like that "all's right with the world " thing going on, that's for sure. two tiny things that bother me are.....i feel it's a bit truncated at the left, the edge cutting that little piece of land, i would've liked to see a little more there, maybe a bit of water if it's there. the other thing is the reflected light in the middle, just bothers my eye, just mho.
