October 2023 - Fireworks on July 4th

About the Image(s)

Every year on the Independence Day there is a fireworks celebration at Gas Works Park in Seattle. To get a good spot for the evening fireworks I went the park in the afternoon. With my Sony a7s iii I took both photos and videos during the eighteen minute show . Editing with Lr, Pr & Blender for the flag waving animation.

Hi Peter,
Greetings my friend.
A lovely presentation of the fireworks on the independence day. You have done a remarkable job here. The clips and the stills all were very smoothly blended. The music is also appropriately added. The posters of the old historic photos in between of the event added to the presentation.
Thank you for sharing.

Your 4th of July video started with a nice assortment of photos and short clips of people anxiously awaiting the big show. An assortment of patriotic clothes sported the event. "Very well Captured"

Then at :36 the waited event starts. A beautifully captured night video of the fireworks display. Then, a fast flickering still shot captured the imagination, followed by yet more videos of the fireworks. Then you insert an image of the signing of the Declaration of Independence" adding to the patriotic sentiment of your video. Colorfully through-out, you show our display of patrisiam.

The only suggestion that I might give is, you used the same image of the flickering fireworks several times. I liked the effect but I think it would have worked better if you had used different photos for that effect.

Well Done !
