NOt a bad shot and the exposure's quite good apart from a little burnout at the base of the burst. It's quite dynamic and just out of interest I've done a quick mod where I mirror-flipped and cropped away some of the dark area. I think it makes it look more dynamic, as things tend to when they read from left to right. See what you think

Hello, Namita. You have done extremely well in capturing this display. I would like to have seen the tips of the highest burst within the frame, and perhaps that's something you could look out for in future, but it's very good nonetheless.
I have done a modification where I added canvas to the top and cloned in the tips of the burst, then adjusted levels, which enhances the colours and also eliminates a lot of the smoke, to give a cleaner finish. I also tried to tone down the little burnt out area that Stephen mentioned.

Hi Smile Stephen, you're right, it looks more "dynamic" when it's flipped.
Thanks for the tip, Pamela, I'll look out for that next time. I like the picture better without the added canvas, but editing it to get rid of the smoke was good.
