I just love taking photos of fireworks. And I just got back home from ones at the Kuchajda lake. It really is a great spot for them, as the lake is very calm, creating great reflection. Also they usually have the fireworks right at the start of the blue hour, so there is also some sky (not like the midnight ones at new years :))

I got some nice photos, so don’t be surprised if you see more of them the next week. I just forgot to change the composition in the middle of the shooting, so all photos have the same one. I just liked the fireworks so much, that I forgot to focus more on the camera.

This photo is a single exposure, edited in Oloneo Photoengine and finished in Photoshop. Looks a little more busier that I usually like my fireworks shots to be, but that a result of the longer exposure I used.
