Feed the fire
One of my absolute favourites. It reminds me of similar photos that are taken in the snow, where the negative space is white instead of black. I was contemplating a crop, but I love this feeling of emptiness. The smoke also adds an interesting effect.
Thoughts appreciated. Would you prefer a crop? What might you change? I tried it in B&W, but it loses a key theme - warmth. Maybe B&W might work if this was a snow shot.
