Thanks for the comment, and thanks for selecting the photo as a finalist.
I tried to set an exposure that would capture many fireworks, yet keep the sky dark.

Unavailable EXIF: If there is no other information but 'Unavailable' in the EXIF (meaning no EXIF data exists with the photo), the 'Unavailable' blurb is not displayed.
