    I took this shot in a training fire saturday, yes I took my E500 in a house fire. I wanted to get a dynamic action shot. Well this is what I came up with, I could have made it a little brighter but I thought this worked better, I figured that the silo would work better than anything else.

    So here is the question, with limited time, space and light, do you think this came out OK or should I have made it brighter?
    Does the weak lighting add to the drama?

    I think if you pointed the camera off the fire a little then metered for the orange cast rather than the open flame itself, you could've captured the drama and a less dark surrounding, and made a nicer effect. I also think that if you got the fire off center a bit, it could've worked better, then you could do the center weighted metering without recomposing anyway.Reminds me of this photo I took.

    For an action shot it doesn't show any action in the composition.
