I haven't posted images on here for months, but I thought I'd share these. I was down at English Bay, Vancouver shooting the fireworks on Wedesday night. These are my favourites from the bunch, but the rest can be seen here: http://www.millionflam​e.com …ireworks/HSBC20​09Night01/ (external link) . Thanks for viewing. C&C is welcome.

Man, these are fantastic! Having the boats, water, and people in the foreground and the hills behind is very nice and really gives a sense of the scale. This makes me want to bak away and not get so close the next time I'm at a show. I think you've done a great job with these.

Thanks a lot people. I was specifically trying to include as much FG interest as I could. On Saturday I'm going to try a different angle on the crowd and fireworks.
