General: Very good journalistic shot. Well captured.

[B}Composition: [/B] Good use of diagonal lines. The diagonal line created by the fireman draws the viewer in. Did you try other perspectives? i.e. having the sprinkler just a little more to the left

Exposure: There seems to be a slight loss of detail in the shadows. This could possibly be helped with a 1/3 of a stop more exposure.

Impact: The yellow glow adds impact. The only thing that would add more impact would be to include the fire he is fighting.

I'm glad this placed well, but surprised it does not have a blue ribbon. A really marvelous shot, well composed, and other elements (diagonal lines) that reall add to the drama. I love the colors, too. Super work!

A little yellow heavy... yes, I know it's a fire, but the brightness seems to wash the pic a bit.

Real drama here! The diagonal line of shadow really gives this image some implied drama. Color and cropping help, too. 10

Great action photo ! I give it a 9 !

Very dramatic photo. I think seeing more of the fire that he's fighting would make it more dramtic. Still a good effort at capturing someone at work. Good work and luck in the challenge.

Look like a rather tense moment. Trying to turn off a natural gas line perhaps. Nice capture.

This is a really an awesome shot. You totally get a feel of the fireman at work, hot and soaking wet. It is almost too bright in the upperleft corner, is that the water spray with fire illuminating it? 9
