same issues as before as standing way behind the crowd and trying to handhold....

Actually did series of 3 - a traditional simple castle with simple star burst firework, the sinister which was previously posted and this finale. have not really done any post processing on them

http://www.smugmug.com/gallery/26674576_rw5Tfs#!i=2231694786&k=SfgP77F&lb=1&s=A is a bit larger version

now this looks like Disney! Lots of color and action. I think if it were mine, I'd do a bit of cloning and get rid of that white area in the lower left corner and the one almost like it i the lower right area. They are smal, but they draw my eye from the fireworks. Good shot, especially in the crowd.

Hi Steve - looks like you had fun at Disney and this is definitely a more traditional shot. Nice job on the fireworks but I find the heavy noise (?) on the castle to be a problem.

That is intense!! I love how the castle is framed by the smoke and rising fireworks. Forme the main problem is the black semi-circle at lower left...almost looks like a fingertip crept over the lens.

this is intense! issues have been noted above and by yourself (tight at the bottom due to the crowd)...
I can imagine this is hard to shoot properly from this position and handheld. Was it an option to place your tripod on max extension and use it to try and 'clear the crowd'?
Another option would have been to make the crowd's silhouettes part of the scene and shoot from lower...
