I absolutely ADORE this picture. It provokes memories from my younger childhood (as I'm still experiencing it - lol).
I honestly do not know why you have requested a critique for this piece as there is nothing to criticism only to admire.
I love love LOVE how you've captured the fireworks 'falling back down to earth' as it gives the impression that it is raining gorgeous sparks. The smoke gives me the impression of a magician hat's, smoke seeping out the hat with sparks raining from it.
The colors are bright, almost vibrant in fact. The little boat on the water reminds me of a scene from 'Tangled'. The one when Rapunzel and Flint/Eugene (not to mention Pascal if I remember correctly) when they are out in their little boat on the lake admiring the star lanterns.
I think you've captured this picture just at the right time!
Please keep up the good work, I wish to see more pieces like this in the future!

Sim, foi. Embora com a preocupação de tirar fotografias, trocar objectivas, etc, não o pudesse ter apreciado como uma pessoa que fosse ver o fogo só pelo entretenimento.

Stunning. That guy on the boat standing like 'yep, I got the best spot'

Indeed he had. However I wouldn't trade. There is no way that I could stabilize my tripod in a boat.

For sure  I wasn't knocking your viewpoint - you had the best spot to capture the guy with the best spot ;)

Either way, that light show looks incredible from wherever you were standing!

Now that you say it, it kind of does. I should have taken my umbrella with me.

Oh, and before I forget, thank you for the fave :)
