lol These are too wide for my 21" screen!

Try resizing them. You will undoubtedly get more feedback.

i like them, it looks so cool. Yes i agree on resizing them. Care to share lens used and spec on camera? Overall it look way better than what i attempted to do last night. =)

It's nice, although I always like to get some of the surrounding ground scenery as well, just to give some perspective.

You did an excellent job of capturing the bursts, but without context they just dont do much. Try to include something to give them perspective and place.

I like # 4 as there is context and it somewhat different than a standard "fireworks in the sky" shot. Nice job.

Thanks for all the feedback. I really appreciate your input.

I wish I wasn't so damn close to all the action (All the shots were taken directly above me)

:D

Another one for resizing and posting them in the thread. I usually just ignore any post that has links. Call me lazy.
