    Colorful and festive! Well composed. I'll have to remember to try such a long exposure next time I shoot fireworks!

    This seems like a text book fireworks shot, which is saying a lot since it isn't easy to get it this right. I think you need to add a little contrast and darken the blacks just a tad.

    Your 15 seconds seems to have been perfectly timed. Beautiful display; nicely balanced by the foreground.

    Itīs strange that everything is sharp with 15s. Good composition, nice colors. In my favorites.

    Spectacular! Beautiful colours and clean lines. I like how the top burst is asserting its individuality. High in my favourites.

    It must have been very tricky to get the right exposure to capture both the fireworks and the buildings on the pier. Well done.

    When the city of Chicago needs a new pic on the cover of the Navy Pier brochure, send them this! Probably had to make a choice, but think I would have not cut off the corner of the pier and cut a bit more of the fireworks

    Nice color and shape contrasts between the round blue wheel and the irregular pink-white fireworks. Excellent exposure - well done!

    There's a LOT going on in this shot! Hope you tell us what the occasion was. A fun and colorful image, in my TT.

    Excellent capture of multiple bursts with good color. The interesting foreground with the Ferris wheel and Navy Pier gives a good base to the image. Nice to have access to such a great view point.
