366 of 2012 - Day 186. Happy 4th of July to my American pals. No fireworks, here, so here is another sparkler shot.
Taken with my Canon PowerShot G12, f/8, 1 sec., ISO-200, no flash, camera on tripod, shot outdoors. Edited with Photoshop; cropped, added text, applied Unsharp Mask, High Pass Filter, adjusted Brightness/Contrast, Inverted, and applied a Gradient Map to the background layer.
