A Winning Battle

    Another shot of the Austin fire. The sun was just a little bit higher in the sky which created a very different look. Nobody was hurt in this fire although a lot of property was damaged.

      I love this shot, Andy. The lighting is amazing - but I particularly like the firefighters in the center, their reflection, the light reflecting off the brick building to the left, and the overall framing of the picture. The framing is such that I almost see two separate pictures - 1 of them contains everything from the left of the ladder on with the closest fireman as the focal point (walking towards the sun). The other is where everything from the closest fireman to the right is the picture - with the firemen at center as the main focus. To me this combination creates a lot of visual interest... I find myself digging for more and more detail rather than just a casual glance.

      Am I making any sense? :)
