I like this because of what looks like droplets of water around it, and that the centre really looks like the centre of a flower....

Aerial shells. Perhaps my 2nd-favourite ever use for explosives. My all-time pyrotechnic Top Trump being big lampares & related nonsense - the ones that look like massive fireballs. IMO, it's not proper pyro if the audience don't experience shockwaves.
I think the stuff that looks like water here is debris from an earlier shell you can see dying above this one. Think this one is maybe a peony aerial shell rather than a traditional chrysanth - in a peony that central burst seems to remain stationary in the air whilst the first burst (stars here, when they wriggle they're called 'fish') travels out around it.
It's possible to make the central burst of a peony into a solid shape - the political parties in the US make them up with donkey or elephant centres, surrounded by a ring of stars.
Sorry to go on but I :really: care about pyro... ;)
