I've seen many from this location over the last few months. This one has the right balance of elements and action. Good silhouetted barrier, against a strong but not overpowering sunset and the right amount of movement and foreground water to balance it all.

And the splash of water in the centre is like a firework burst. As stated, it's great timing!

I was going to say it's a cracker and use the firework analogy but I've been beaten to it. So I'll just have to say "fab shot" and congrats on the EC.

Out-bloody-standing. The sort of picture I hate, as I think "That's it mate, forget about it; you're just never going to get something as good as that. Ebay your kit and find something else to do."
Stunning, wonderful picture.
