Brilliant and electrifying image, Dan!
Love the composition, making the glowing center of the "nova" as attention-grabbing as the fingers!

AWESOME shot, Dan! Beautiful abstract flower! My fireworks went up in smoke & look less than appealing. Takes real talent to capture those phenominal & illusive art explosions! SUPERB!
