"QUEENSTOWN FIREWORKS" by ALISON METHERELL; Grade: Acceptance.
You have caught this quite well but I feel the viewpoint has let the composition down. The vast empty space on the upper right reduces any interest in this area, The lighting on the lower buildings has been captured well. Maybe, had there been another flash of light you could have added to the right side here could improve the picture. For a record, it has been captured well. Fireworks images are not difficult to capture, it all comes down to timing and just what is going off at that time. If the shutter on the camera can be left on Bulb, and a lens cap used, a number of different flashes can be captured on the one frame. But be careful if you move the camera and any local lighting will move also.
