I agree with Kate, Sharon!! Fabulous shot!! You did a great job on all your fireworks. I would not have thought to use camera movement during the exposure.

Congratulations on this finalist and all the others! This has wonderful colors and balance. Have you inverted the image to be upside down to help create this effect? I like this!

Congatulations!

Thank you, Kate, Debra, The Judges and Bryan! No, I didn't do anything to the image except zoom while taking the shot. I had my tripod with me, but I have many normal looking fireworks shots that I decided to remove the camera from the tripod and try something different.
