Denver Elitch Gardens Fireworks

This image depicts the a fireworks display in Denver, Colorado. These fireworks where shot off from the city’s downtown amusement park, Elitch Gardens. I choose to frame these fireworks with the 20 story Observation Tower in the frame to give it a sense of scale. Also, I made sure the the exit ramp created a curving line that drew the viewers attention right into the frame. The long exposure image captured the moving car lights and the light streaks from the fireworks.
