Brilliant, just brilliant. I think that every woman could and can relate to this idea. So that in itself is the power behind photography. Well done.

Yeah, I love this shot.

Obviously, the legs help etc. But it's really that title that gets me. "She hates to be betrayed". I can just image the women kicking and screeming in a fit of rage when the fire fighter saves her from the fire that she created. There's a whole story behind the shot because of the title. I put this as a favorte the moment I saw it during the challenge, but have only decided to comment now. Why? No clue. Who cares really. Bottom line: this is a great shot. the quality of the image is wonderful and the title nails the whole thing smack on the head. Wonderful.

How did u get the uniform? Did you just ask the firemen to lend it to you?

Congrats on the rib3.gif Jorge.
This shot shows the different between a well-thought out and executed idea vs. a good picture.
Well done and bravo on keeping an awesome average score here on DPC.

In light of my recent 'out-burst' about this photo, and my thoughts still remain, I must also add this:

I've always thought of photography as a form of art. To me, art should evoke emotion in a viewer. This photo has certainly, without a doubt, done that to me. So, in that sense, it's a 10. Congrats on the ribbon...
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/22/2006 07:43:27 AM
Nothing like a little ass in the shot to get those number up; awesome lighting effects; the focus is not sostrong especially near the foot; but show fishnets and come up with a great title and voila; NICE RIBBON.

CRAZY photo! Absolutely fantastic! By far the best one but the DPC members show once again bad judgement.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/21/2006 09:10:36 PM
I'm not sure I get the title at all.... but I love the image. Obviously this is a mannequin lol !! The stern and expressionless face on the fireman is what makes this image, combined with all the other elements. I come back to it again and again. What an effort and effect.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/21/2006 09:02:22 PM
That's nice of you to thank the fire department...However, I'm pretty sure they are thanking you even more!

This type of image would not normally appeal to me. In this case it has such "tongue in cheek" humor that I really like it.

Way to get the voters' attention. Keep up the good work.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/21/2006 08:34:38 PM
Stunning shot. Great on so many technical levels. What I like best though is the way it fits the challenge. You can feel the heat from the background, and the added heat from those legs. The contrasting cool fireman gives the photo balance. I appreciate all the effort you put into this. Congratulations on your well deserved ribbon.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/21/2006 07:15:59 PM

08/21/2006 06:18:57 PM
As much as I like the photograph, I cant say that it deserves a photo. The fire isnt the main subject in the photo, nor can you really see it. Another problem I see...

The fireman is dirty/sooty, but the woman is clean as a whistle... hows that possible?

I would have given this a 6.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/21/2006 06:02:05 PM
This is a beautiful shot, the firemen can use this in their calendar.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/21/2006 05:38:29 PM
I like the shot alot and not just because of the beautifully curved model.

The thought that has gone into this is inspiring and well deserved a ribbon. I love the lighting effect of the fire behind the subjects which really seems to push the people out of the picture.

Focus, colour are great.

Congradulations!!

Just stopped in to congratulate you and read thru some of the comments. I am just blown away that people use THIS forum. . .the one where one has just achieved the most coveted award dpc gives out -- a RIBBON -- to criticize, complain, and point out flaws in a winning photo. It's like going on T.V. after a gold medal was won and badmouthing their winning opponent. Grrrrrr. . .sorry. . .just had to vent that before telling you that this photo is awesome! I LOVE that cool expressionless, macho face. . it makes it even more dry and humorous.

I am SO GLAD this won! It deserves its place with the 2 other top honored photos!! Congratulations!!!!

  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/21/2006 12:38:29 PM
After consulting with the experts, I'd like to add that just because I don't care for the results nor subject - I feel compelled to add that I have no problems with the photographic quality of your image.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/21/2006 12:18:21 PM
Caro Jorge: parabéns pela excelente fotografia e a mestria no controlo da luz. É sempre com grande satisfação que vejo um fotógrafo português se distinguir dos demais pela sua qualidade, grande qualidade do seu caso. Espero que as suas excelentes fotos sejam uma fonte de inspiração para os colegas fotógrafos portugueses para que estes se rendam ao dpchallenge para que qualquer dia possamos fazer um encontro de dpc's em portugal.

Por 'ultipo resta-me apenas acrescentar um agradecimento pela explicação de como a fotografia foi tirada e da pós produção da mesma. Esse é um assunto com o qual eu tenho-me sempre debatido quer aqui no dpchallenge que em outros locais do género, pois para quem quer aprender trata-se de uma grande fornte de aprendizagem e mostra o espírito de abertura do fotógrafo.

Best regards and the wish of many future ribbons.

08/21/2006 10:55:34 AM
Im really surprised that this ribboned, i dont like the expressionless face at all. This picture also apears to be totaly static to me when in reality it should not be at all. And last of all a little tiny fire extinguisher???

So imo i think that the fact that theres a partially naked girl in the photo infuenced people to vote it higher.

Excellent postprocessing. The fire extinguisher is kind of funny though. He seems a little underprepared going in. Are they standard fireman gear? ;) Anyways - nice work - bumping up.

Somebody buy that girl a pair of shorts! Back to bump you although it pains me. I'm setting aside my repulsion of this sort of use of the female form for an honest judgement of the merits of the photo. Excellent colors and cool lighting. The orange light/fire behind looks great. Excellent composition (except that a skirt is in order). Bumping to an 8.

08/17/2006 06:56:39 PM

  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/17/2006 03:51:04 PM
Nice entry. Photos with an easily recognizable story are fun. Good colors here, lighting looks good too. There's some weirdness in the uniform, not sure what, has a strange muted aspect like its been neat imaged, maybe some other PP was done to it. I'm not sure if seeing the man's eyes would be better or not, the fact that they are shadowed makes me want to see them yet it does lend a bit of mystery and anonymity to him. The blurry heel of the woman's left foot is a tad distracting so if more of it were in shadow the image would be even better. Only other thing is the bit of string from the woman's underwear or lingerie that is showing on her thigh. Normally probably not a big thing, but due to the position she's in and the light highlighting that area it becomes noticeable and a little distracting. Overall a very good image that coupled with the title has a great story to tell - without the title all sorts of other stories can easily be found it in too which is a great thing. I gave a 6

Don't quite get the title, but a great photo. I just bumped it up an extra point. Man Firemen get all the ladies....

08/17/2006 12:43:13 PM
nice uhm, shot? I'd give it a 10 for the model alone.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/17/2006 10:26:24 AM
Am surprised by title - was expecting 'it's a dirty job but somebody's gotta do it..." or something like that. I don't quite understand the betrayal. Maybe she's a vengeful arsonist? Shot inspires curiosity, which is good. And I sure wonder how you got it ;-)

Hm, I'm a little confused by this shot and title... but visually, it is a good image. I think it is composed well, and looks like a very artistic shot but one that manages to keep from looking too set up.

08/15/2006 10:57:14 AM
Oh my goodness. Some people might find this offensive or even sexist.
I don't.
I'm not really sure this meets the challenge as the subject clearly is NOT fire... Should score high nevertheless.
Nice capture though, I'm looking forward to your photographer's notes.

Well Well Well ... For me this shot is just FANTASTIC! The "Out of the box" thinking that went into this could make it a ribbon or damn it to hell.

From me you get a 9 cuz I am glad to see her rescued and brought to safety. LOL The only thing I have to say on the technicals is maybe greater DoF and a tad sharper. But Oh Yeah!

for sheer effort alone you get a ten. for the ever so slight cheesy and tacky benny hill-esque you get another ten. deeply impreseed with this; which is the obvious intent, i suppose. i do think you might have been a little bit over zealous with the old noise reduction, there, but generally this is superb to the nth degree. creative, imaginative, bit funny, excellently executed. 10.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/14/2006 02:17:33 PM
O.K.....you got my attention with the naked bottom...

BUT.....

This is a great shot anyway you cut it and what makes it even better (besides the models :-D) is that you aren't even showing fire...just alluding to it in such a powerful way.

I rarely comment on photos anymore and never give out 10's..if ever...but this shot begs for a comment and the title....very nice.

How in the WORLD did you accomplish this photo.
