Reflections and crowd watching the July 4th Fireworks.....crowd mezmerized!

While waiting for an 8 second direct exposure of the July 4th Macy's fireworks of the Hudson, I used the time to quickly turn around and capture this shot of the crowd behind me. The fireworks above their heads is actually a reflection in the window behind them. The variation in crowd reaction shots was interesting. Fireworks tend to make most people smile, and although you can't hear it, yell out in excitement (as well as take pictures).

Actually, I am quite sure not one of the shots any of these individuals took of the fireworks were even remotely clear or in focus, since a tripod is necessary for any exposure longer than 1/30th of a second.
