Great shot, especially with the 18-250m which is not the best lens for low light. Nice framing also.

Well done and thank you for sharing.

Nice subtle colors. Often the tendency (mine anyway) in firework shots is to over-saturate. Very good photo.

I like this one. The foreground people and the buildings in the back make it for me. Welcome to the forums and hope to see more of your photos.

Thank you people for your kind comments, it is true that Tamron 18-250 mm not good for low light, but i didn't have any choice, i was so close to the fireworks and i didn't know that it will a professional show, it was a surprise, if i was far away from it, i would choose the pentax M 50mm 1.7 lens.....Thank you again for welcome.

I agree with Susan, your inclusion of the people in the foreground and the town in the background really make this shot. It's beautiful.
