    34 views and no comments. Are they that bad? C'mon guys help me out. I post here for fun and education. 34 views with no comments is neither fun nor educational.

    Tough crowd around here huh?

    1= Great shot but I would straighten it out maybe crop or fix the exposure on the right.



    3,4,5= I love the foreground how it helps to draw your eyes toward the fire and firefighters.

    6= I would crop out the foreground

    7= perfect in my opinion

    8= just upsetting that those people are standing so close to a working fire but that has nothing to do with the photo.

    :thumbup:Thumbs up I like them.

    7 was a great shot! Wish you had something like that but rescuing a baby or something llike that. 8 was also good, but I think you should crop a little more. Try anticipating the reaction of a fireman aside from just standing there and dousing the fire. These are called human interest photos in which the photos tell a story.

    8, although not cropped well, is one of the pictures that tells a more personal story. Those people are watching their home burn. The whole time I was there I was standing between them and the fire. I was close enough to feel the heat. I wanted to capture their reactions but I didn't have the heart to point the camera at them...in their face paparazzi style. So I waited until I was leaving.

    Nice shots...

    #2 I may have cropped a little off the bottom and included the top of the roof,
    #3 Again with the cropping of the foreground, or maybe a landscape shot? But not knowing the overall scene hard to say...
    #4, #5, #6 (see comment on #3)
    #7 Good shot, but there seems to be a little something off with the detail of the firefighters? The one in the foreground seems over-sharpened? (Around his SCBA)
    #8 Again i might have shot this one landscape.
