A Very Happy and Prosperous New Year' Greeting to all those in Trek Lens land. Here is a quick contribution to the "theme" of the moment.

I selected two of my fireworks images both shot in RAW. Each image was processed in PS-RAW adjusting the Clarity, Vibrance, and Recovery. NIK RAW Pre-Sharpener was used to get the details as sharp as possible. In NIK Viveza, boosted the Structure and adjusted the Shadow level to get the background sky as black as possible. Back in PS, made a layer selection of the fireworks itself (removing the background). Finally, I assembled each of the fireworks into the final image with a border and lettering.

Just a simple New Year's greeting to everyone on TL, and a wish that everyone will have many great photographic opportunities in 2012.
