Aptly titled. Very nice shot. Great color and sharpness.
dominick, not sure how i missed this one, all i have to say is you sure do have some wonderful flowers to work with on that island of yours. also agree about bottom flower, gregs image has much better balance. lovely work!
Ben, the darkened background certainly increases the illusion that these flowers are fireworks. Thanks for the input. I'm enjoying the flower arrangements you are posting. You and your wife are both very talented. Aloha.
The title is perfect, as "fireworks" were my first impression when viewing the thumbnail. Great combination of colour and definition!
From the thumbnail, it was fireworks indeed (feu d'artifice). And when I got to the bigger version it was still fireworks but of the floral kind. This is a very fine image and it can be improved with with Gegory's version IMHO.
Amazing is the first work that come to my mind. Thanks for sharing. Take care, Patsy
Very creative and original. The only adjustment I would make is to darker the background and increase the colors a bit. I gave it a try in lightroom, what do you think.
These are wonderful. The partial in lower right seems to detract, to me. I'm sure this can be done better, but here's an idea. But colors, clarity- all gorgeous.
I forgot the attachments, here it is.
Greg, Tony, thanks for the constructive criticism. I pondered removing it but in the end decided to leave it there. Next time I'll trust that initial instinct. I appreciate the honest feedback. Aloha.
Really beautiful work with very nice lighting and colours, Dominick!
With best regards,
