    This is a great picture. The angle that it as taken, being even with the fireworks and looking down on the city, is spectacular.

    This image is not layered. It is a single image.

    With the 11sec exposure, I am guessing the fireworks were added as a separate layer. Just a great rendering of the Pier and one that makes it look very exciting!

    Fantastic colour and detail. The lighting is excellent considering the long exposure that you were dealing with

    Spectacular capture, great exposure. Crop seems a bit tight, esp. on the wheel.

    Makes me feel patriotic. Great composition and perfect perspective. I'd like a tad more room at the bottom below the Navy Pier. High fav.

    So much to look at, lots competing for my attention, still a great capture nevertheless.

    Lovely capture. Getting fireworks is always challenging. I find the composition the most challenging with fireworks photos, always tough to point the camera on the tripod in the right direction and due to the longer exposure you have to kind of preempt where the next explosion is going to be. I normally focus on a wider area and then crop afterwards, not sure if this is what you did here? My only critique would maybe be to have the wheel slightly more in the frame, just slightly, at least not touching the edge of the frame, but this is a small concern. In my TT.

    Little too stock image looking, but still very colorful and well shot.
