Fireworks Exploding Over Salem's Friendship

I want to thank the following groups for featuring this image in their groups.
Visions of the night.
When shooting fireworks most towns donít have a strong foreground object to give your fireworks more than bursts of light. In Salem, you have a chance to place the Friendship of Salem which is anchored in Salem Harbor at Derby wharf. The Friendship is a replica of a 1797 East Indiaman, trading ship.
When I chose the location I looked at where the fireworks would be launched from (the end of the jetty near Salemís bug light on Derby wharf). So I chose to put the ship between me and the fireworks. Picking this location turned into, one of the best places to see the Salem Fireworks go off. (In my opinion) It felt like I was watching a sea battle with the explosions of the fireworks going off above the ship and behind the mast giving silhouette to the masts and rigging. There are different angles to choose from but for me this was one of the best.
