Fireworks in general vs. controlled fireworks

On New Year's Eve Icelanders let loose their inner children and express their delight in things that go "boom!" with a frantic fireworks display. Sales number indicate that 600 tons of fireworks were shot up or blown up on the one night. I like fireworks as much as the next person, but I must admit that their beauty can be much better enjoyed by watching a controlled fireworks show. Below I have posted two of my best fireworks shots from New Years Eve, and a slide show of the rest:
