the lack of focus on the subject and the relative focus on the leaves make me feel like I'm spying on this person, which is a bit of what we do when reading a biography. And I do see faces in the fire... it paints a contemplative moment. I'd crop on the right to tighten the composition - bring our attention to the center of the fire. I wonder how it would look sharp?

How strange - talk about the powers of suggestion - I look intot he fire and can see the lower area of a face with nostrils and mouth and part of the jaw line. Is that why you entered it or is it just coincidence and suggestiveness?
:o)
Nice image, with good use of foliage to frame.

Great idea, although too few will recognise the name. Nice fire photo.

The focus of the pic is the fire, not the "faces"... The faces would seem to indicate a very human element that seems to be missing.

I'm not sure how hard it is to shoot fire, as I have never tried myself, but this is the second fire shot that I have seen that is slightly out of focus. So my ignorance in the difficulty of shooting a focused shot of fire not withstanding, I like the silhouette effect & the matching orange border, it brings out the colours in the fire to the fore front. I think that if the objects in silhouette were sharper & more focused that would have been an even better shot.

And what does the face in the fire mean? Nice shot.

Aha. I see the face. Very nicely captured. The blurring of the person in the foreground works well in this image although I fear others may not like it.
