    Fire Power

    Just a shot of flames in a burn off out in the paddocks to see if the flames could be framed

    Hi Ken,

    I like this, but personally, I think it is improved by taking 10% off the right hand edge, the main aim to lose much (not all) the green patch top right, but I also feel it helps with the compositional placing of the main timbers.

    HTH,

    I think that is quite an amazing and very interesting image. How did you photograph this without blowing the fire?

    I agree with Dave's suggestion and I think it would also look very nice cropped 16 x9

    I agree.

    I'd also go further than Dave in suggesting cutting at the right hand side in order to make it a 1:1 (square) image. A dofficult shot to get and got very well.

    Viewing this at its largest size I am mesmerized by it...almost as if I am sitting in front of the fire itself. I like this very much and would be interested to see different crops, I think Donald is on to it with a square crop.

    Cheers

    That is a nice shot indeed; have you done some cloning on the right top? i personally would love to keep the image without trimming, because the branches are strong leading lines to the center of the image; instead you may work out some more cloning there leaving only some tit bits of green there to balance green seen on the other side too
    Regards
