<<< o >>>heat the streets #3 15 comments + add yours

This is my third and final image from the Heat the Streets event I shot on Saturday evening – taken during the finale. On reflection, I wish I'd gone for a tighter crop, but I was shooting over the heads of the people in front of me and had Harmony sat on my shoulders, so it wasn't taken under the most relaxed of circumstances ;-)

This is a wonderful shot! Love the composition, with all the action on the left save the falling sparks. The sense of motion on this is also really great - what with the flames only just frozen in place. This shot has nice mood to it too. Good stuff.

layers of light, and a good use of thirds in the 1x1, looks like the angel of the north on fire.... tell harmony it was a cracking shot... I'm assuming she pressed the button for her daddy..... csj

Good silhouette. The fire is giving a glow to the photo.

Some great stuff on here lately. Can't even pick a favorite, everything since I last visited is top notch. Still don't know how you manage to post every day. I can't even finish my website, been trying for five years.

Keep up the good work,
