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.

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.
