pea24's 'Light the blue touch-paper.....'
: I loved the idea and the firework theme. I feel that the photo is dominated by the black on the RHS of the photo. I know this must have been a real tricky shot to capture but if the sparkler (i think that's what it is
) was more visible, ie the light covering more area, then I think it would have been a stronger shot.
JerryWSL's 'Young Love'
: Lovely idea, but I thought the subjects were too small in the frame. I maybe would have concentrated on the tree OR used my zoom lens to get a closer shot of the couple
Other favourites were Cutter and TwinnieE.
Thank you 2Beers and Kezpock for your votes! And thank you to Cutter and wavemachine for your comments and pea24 for your nice critique.
Thanks Deena. I know my shot wasn't the best but I was enjoying night round at a friends with fireworks and a good few beers (good combination) and decided to try and capture this. Only had one chance since it was the last firework :-) and his lighter was just a smouldering stick from the firework box. I was pleased with the light flare and the hand but I agree that i needed more.
I was thinking of going to the Ottery Tar Barrel night but didn't manage it. Here's a shot from a few years ago on a 50mm lens - it was hot!
