I cannot help feel this shot deserved much better. I personally voted it a 9.

Sorry, using a photo of someone's death may be acceptable for photojournalism but I find it unacceptable as an entry in a photo contest.

Are we sure it's real and not a Lego construction? Fantastic

Beautiful vibrant colors, nicely sharp. Looks almost as if they're immobile.

Although this does not depict the catastrophe, it's an awesome shot! Was this where/when that guy died?

OMG! Is this the guy who died? I read about it, but haven't seen any picture.

Great shot but what a terrible tragedy. Was this just before the actual moment it happened or was this on another occasion?
