A great shot - well framed, exposed, etc.

I love the blues and yellows of the blowtorch flames, and the reflections on the glass. And the whole orange ambience of the shot creates a sense of a hot, stuffy, industrial kind of scene. The understated presence of the tools over on the right hand side enhance this feeling.

I can't help wondering, though, if the finished product is intended to contain a liquid... :-)

this is a nice photo from the action itself. I think it's hard to take a photo with these tough light-situations, but you did a good job. bumping to 7 :)

Very nice, rich color to this shot. Good job at keeping the reflections to a minimum, too.

Nice compo and good catch of the fire from the bully burners (we use them for roofthatching a lot).

I think a square crop on the flames and the glass would be great. I find the right side of the photo uninteresting and distracting.

Great capture. Think I might have cropped it a bit more.
