    Almost looks straight out of a batman movie with the green foreboding lighting & billowing smoke.

      Best I've seen so far. Red is so popular, I'm pleased you chose to showcase the rich greens instead. Boats in the foreground give a nice sense of scale.

      By 10:11PM (at least according the bayer clock in the distance), the smoke from the fireworks was starting to consume the point, definitely giving it more of the traditional "battle worn" (or yeah blindspot - apocalyptic) feel vs. a celebratory feel. The green sitting in the smoke was nice and eerie, and although it was for but a few fleeting seconds, it definitely took me to a bit of a different place.

      Thanks for all of the comments & feedback on the series, as I'm just getting started on the real photography thing (after getting my D90 3 weeks back).
