This week's Project MCP challenge was take a shot at night., which worked out pretty well for me.
The sparklers were the result of Meryl finishing for novel and wanting to celebrate the happy event. I love how this sparkler picture turned out.
By using the flash I got a nice quick shutter speed and the background turned velvety black, a nice trick considering it wasn't full dark. The spirals of smoke add a nice dimension with the bright sparks flying off the end. I did zero processing, this shot is straight out of the camera.
