81/365: Magic's End

It's only taken 270 days for me to pick a photo for March 21, our day in Disney's Magic Kingdom. In spite of the many successful shots over the course of the day, I keep coming back to this one from the finale of the fireworks show. I like the silhouette of the castle, I like the heavy black tones, I like the subtle illumination of the crowd. And the fireworks are all right too. (Actually I'm kind of impressed with all of the fireworks shots I posted from that day; I think they're pretty good considering I was shooting hand-held and basically winging it the whole time.)
