7 - Met the Challenge, barely; In my opinion, the hose is a tool, the only other possible 'reach' I can get is the harness, or the hats, possibly the uniforms but getting into semantics there so in my books 'ok pass' (but it's too much of a reach). I have a feeling this will either win or rate very high. It is a 'nicely composed' photo and the b/w or sepia? works well. Criticism; I would like to see more contrast on the spray and even more definition in the fireys. May be a little 'blown out', not sure on that. Although I mentioned the b/w, given the minimal subjects I wonder how this would have looked in color.
edit; ok - up to 7 from 5 re toolS (definitely more with 'definite' toolS)

Bumping up the second time around. This is a great pic, and is now in my top 2.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/02/2005 09:08:25 PM
Very nice coloration, and I very much like the position of the subjects in the frame. Good, concise composition. Like the slope of the hill they're on, and the curve of the hose. Nice job.

I really like the composition of this. I can see a bit of white fringe around the fireman though-perhaps from unsharp mask?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/28/2005 02:37:05 PM
I like the subject of your photo. I'm not so crazy though about the color tone you used.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I like this a lot well done
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/28/2005 09:50:24 AM
Very nice. The sepia filter works well here. The angle of the shot is interesting and makes for a great composition. Maybe the figures are a touch too dark but overll - well done.
