Sky Flowers

Recent fireworks display. First is straight out of the camera, with a little cropping, using a long exposure and bluring the focus during exposure. Looks like a flower! Second is similar but I added in some color too. Thought I would try out this for the first time as the regular fireworks shots have been done!


(Ok, not *really* flowers and not quite yellow, but they are close on both counts!)

Visit Mellow Yellow Monday for more yellow!

Visit Today's Flowers for more blooms!

PS, thanks for the link for Mouse-Over Tutorial that you posted, i was trying this awhile ago and completely forgotten to finish it.

I had the code for mouse-over but cannot seem to insert it on my page.

..saves me a lot of time and brain cells to do this one.
