2nd Place Win
Digital Darkroom

An image of fireworks combined with an image of a lily in PS. Both images taken with the D70. While I was working on this I kept thinking it was an original idea, but the more I look at it the more I think I've seen something similiar before. I hope the title is original anyway!
