    imo, it looks like a just a normal snapshot. Also either the quality went way down during upload or you have some other issues with noise and such, but the picture seems a pixelated to me and not very "clean"

    I'm a rookie as well, but I would say the picture is overexposed ... BUT please correct me if I'm wrong.

    I would have framed the ladder engine better by getting it all in frame... have the people set their house on fire again so you can re-shoot.:thumbup:

    If you moved to the left, and had the ladder leading to the other fireman on the roof, it may have turned out better. My eyes followed that ladder all the way to the end, and there was nothing but sky. Other than that... it does kind of look like a snapshot how it sits.

    I guess you had only a short time and had to be quick to get this photo and didn't have the time you would normally have to set it up, but some people use photo manipulating programmes to get the effect they want. I found that the photo had so much going on I didnt know where to look, there seemed so much information to take in. But as you say, you wanted to get the whole story in

    The story seems lost. They could be there to get a raccoon out of the chimney.

    I'm not trying to be rude, but if you were looking for news'y type pictures, you need it to convey the story/point and I think you missed out. It doesn't need to be artsy for it to convey the story.

    All you gotta do is keep trying :), thats the point I'm at right now haha. At least you got some good C&C on your thread though, mine seem to get lost :(

    That's all well and good, but the image doesn't convey that.
