One suggestion, it would be great to have little smaller photo. Generally speaking when viewing photos on the web, they loose thier effect if a viewer has to scroll in any direction.
Its a great catch with good capture of colors displaying the heat of the fire. IMHO, a little more crop may make it more interesting
THAT is "city life" for you?
Man, I'm glad I live in the country!
The fire looks very real. That is good.
There's a "Fire" thread somewhere in the Photo Themes. Would would want to resize it first and then put it up there, too?
The burn marks will buff right out.
There is a reason it looks real.
It was. I have another photo thaat shows the no parking sign catching fire. Really pretty amazing shot IMHO.
Thanks for the kind words.
Sure. I dont really have any photo editing software. Kinda a purest. Perhaps I should purchace something?
Here Whats this look like?
This is a great capture that I hope you don't see everyday. I really like how you can't see the entire car and you are left wondering...WHAT? and WHY?
The only suggestion I would have, and i believe it was already mentioned above, would be to crop it a bit tighter.
**just saw the new crop...I would keep so distance on the left and right to give it a panoramic feeling, but not too much. Just so it isn't so square.
i dont agree with the other people. i think you shouldnt crop it. I think you should shrink it in size so that we can all see it without having to scroll . but dont crop it. I like how the original is bright and in the center of the picture. it really attracts the eye. but when you take out all of the blackness from around it, it doesnt give it as much of a punch. I think if you have the whole thing completely surrounded in darkness, it does give you a kind of inquiring feeling about the picture. otherwise, its just a picture of a car on fire.
Thanks for the comment. I have just found that my camera allows for resize. So hopefully ill not torture your eyes any more.
REALLY thanks for the input.
I think I agree with the no crop. I think one thing that really makes this photo good is the transition from light to dark along the car body and you would loose that with too tight a crop. It might be possible to crop the farthest edges and attain a better composed shot just so long as you still have a good trasition of light.
Interesting shot. I like the original photo. Again; I hope this is not something you see everyday. Was this a Mob hit? Was anyone hurt? Post some details of the photo.
