poor cropping

This is a good (and interesting) shot overall. What might improve it? It looks as though a bit more contrast would add punch. Also, the left edge crop is very tight.

On a reshoot, you might consider the following: the ceiling matches the ladders, and thus, it doesn't stand apart from its background. In fact, if you look around the setting, there's more of that--the reddish wall on the left, the bright background versus the highlights. Recompose, or even using fill flash to allow the background to be darker in general might make it really stand out.

Love the truck! One comment I have is I wish the entire truck was in view. The cropped end could be better. 8

Could more of the side view be included? The technical operation of the unit would be better appreciated.

As a firefighter, I find this photo very interesting. Good picture, maybe the angle could have been better.

Very cool photo!!! The vibrant red looks great against what looks almost like a black and white background. It looks like a poster, or a framed wall print. I love it. 10
