I like this one...


This image realle gives me that admiration of firefighters and other heroes, who risk their health and lives every day for us. The apparent closeness to the fire really add to the impact of this picture. You really managed to use the compressed perspective in a good way.

One negative point is the noise which I suppose is due to a very close crop in a jpg-image? It is a pity that the C5050 has such a short tele in such situations. On the other hand, the grainy noise also gives an impression of very difficult conditions, thus it isn't only negative.

Cheers, Jens.

I think the noise adds to the impact of the overall quality of the image...well done!

Thanks Keith, That's how I felt, although my wife prefers One Man Image 2 for cropping.She feels that the difference between the fire and the green grass sets the shot off better. Personal call eh!

Great image

Great composition with bags of impact. The noise (grain in old money!) really adds to the image in my opinion. Well done
