Happy Independence Day. Here is another post for today -- a composite of several images including four different fireworks bursts plus the Statue of Liberty and the flag. When adding fireworks, it's not necessary to make a precise selection. In fact, it's not necessary to make a selection at all. Simply paste the fireworks photo into the background, and then in the blend mode submenu (found in the layers palette in Photoshop), choose 'lighten'. The black sky magically disappears and you are left with a perfect blend of the fireworks layer with the background sky.
