I guess this technique could be used for many other types of photographs. I found the video very interesting. Thanks.

Hi Dylan, really great lesson , I was wondering if there is a set of practice images to go along with this lesson, or is there a site where I can pick up similar images to practice using your instructions. Thanks for your time. ~ John ~

Thanks for watching John! 🙂 The practice files are downloadable, there’s a button to the bottom right of the video where you can download all the practice files. If you’re looking for free images to use check out signatureedits.com or Unsplash.com

In the photo the walkway is reflective. The green lights are reflected. It seems for some authenticity that the fireworks would be reflected. Thoughts?

Thanks for two really thought provoking videos.
Previously I tried masking in images of fireworks, and the result was not as good as I would have liked it to be. Using the blend modes worked well. Thanks, as I come from a Lightroom background, and not a Photo Shop background, I am only just starting to glimpse the potential power of blend modes.
The turning day into night technique is fab. too.
And thanks Craig, (coment above), as you have given me another thought to explore. If I made the road in my image look wet, by painting it with contrast or maybe one of the effects filters. Then I could perhaps turn the fire work layer upside down. Then try to layer it in as a dark reflection? It might not work, but if it did.. then it would certainly help to sell the image to a viewer?
