Isn't the smoke enough to look at? What else do you need here?

I really liked this image. Gave it a 9; if the composition were a little bit more interesting, would be a 10. Underrated.

Very mysterious, makes me wonder if he set the blaze!

This is interesting. I think that increasing the contrast or shadows/highlights would really draw more attention to the center figure.

There's not a lot to comment on in this image. I think it's good.

a fairly flat image that could do with some contrast adjustments...there's a very slight hint of color in the far background...play with that to bring it out a bit more
