This shot was taken at the Seattle Center Amusement Park during the annual Bumbershoot festival. I was experimenting with the "Fireworks" setting on my camera to get the blur. I didn't have a tripod so this is handheld. I did a little noise removal in Corel XI and darkened a little in Picasa2.

Thank you Vishal! I just set my camera on it's "Fireworks" setting which just gives it a longer shutter speed.
