Independence Day fireworks, 2010. :D

I had a smudge on my lens. :iconteheplz: Usually that would ruin photos but instead it made some really interesting effects for my fireworks shots. Not sure if the fingerprint was mine or from one of the 70 or so people at my uncle's party yesterday. There were so many people. It was awesome.

I had a great night (although the day was rather unpleasant, after getting a bin full of raccoon shit dumped down my back, GAH). I got to see my cousins from Chicago which was so awesome. :la:

We did a huge display at the family cabin with some family around and I saw a friend of mine I hadn't seen in ages and we had giant smores so it was fun :D

Can I have smores without the marshmallow? :D

Or rather, can I just have the melty chocolate on some graham crackers? Cause that's deliciousness right there. :giggle:

I really lucked out with the smudge, any other kind of picture would have been ruined. :lol:

:iconfireworkplz: :flagus: I would say at one point there were 80 people there. Mike's property is so spacious he could have had 250 and had plenty of room for everyone. This firework is gorgeous. Featured it at the top of my latest journal sent out from my stock site promoting two articles. Will send it out again form my private site :nod:

Yeps, although food to feed 250 would have trouble fitting on the tables. :lol:

I'm just about done processing all my fireworks from the last three 4ths. 227 pics to Photobucket and another 148 or so to my stock site, although those are in groups of 4 per deviation so it won't take forever to post them.

I'd never have known there was a smudge on your lens. In fact, I'd still be hard pressed to come up with a decent guess as to where it is in the photo. It all looks real crisp to me.

It's in the bottom right - you can see it in the weird crosshatch pattern over the lights there. It sort of reminds me what lights look like when they pass out those refraction lenses at Christmas. :XD:

You could probably stand over my shoulder and point right at it and I still wouldn't see it!
