Don't worry, it was only a DOS 5 manual. I didn't read the page beforehand so I'm curious why it said "smokey".

Critique Club review:

Hi Tom,

First your shot meets the challenge well with your title and edge of fire.

Your photo has great lines. You led our eyes right to what your subject is, the line of fire and possibly unconciously the word smokey. Having the line located where you did, is what I like the most, besides the nice contrasts.

Your dof is right on. The focus on the close sheet and off focus on background is perfect.

I have nothing negative to say about the shot.

Keep up the great work.

Van

Brilliant depiction of this title. Outstanding photo. You should win the challenge for this one.

Great photo.
Good job on the lighting, getting good exposure on the fore- and background well and to hold the glow in the small flames must have been a bit of work. I like it how you composed this, as well as the aperture choice. Good clean, detailed and good sharp text. When I think about my Before and After photo, I had a hard time to get the edges of the text right.....
I've read this book for my English exam (I'm Dutch) and enjoyed it. Good choice, good job!

Wonderful idea and realisation. Truly evocative of the book.

ok
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/14/2003 01:23:06 PM
very nice. That glowin orange line really pops out of the simple b&w composition, the curve of the diagonal really suggest how the paper is being eaten up. I like the DOF - havinf the suggestion of more pages in the backgound work well - 9

This is a beautiful pictures. I conveys perfectly with the book. The embers and the blurred backround make it even better. Keep up the good work! :)

You burned a book! Good subject, nice picture. I like how the back page is out of focus.

Nice idea for this book title. Well done.

The fire along the edge is very well done indeed. Great shot.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/13/2003 04:06:50 AM
I like the curve of the burning paper and the capture of the flaming egde. I'm much less keen on your choice for a background - the white is too bright and, although I can appreciate the decision to go for a blurred effect, the blurred text is too uneven in layout to really contribute to a strong composition.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Is this really the book burning? Not so sure. Nice image, good imagination.

fantastic, unique, macro shot. It seems you took the shot at the perfect time.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/12/2003 12:24:00 PM
this is a picture representing the content of the story, not a picture of the title. otherwise excellent.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/12/2003 12:14:27 PM
Absolutely fantastic concept! Great use of DOP. The small line of flames really defines and separates foreground from background. Excellent thematic interpretation!

Excellent job capturing the smoldering on the page edges. The background is a bit too white though. Maybe if you concentrated the light above the page in the foreground instead of below. That would have balanced the brightness and also avoided having the text from the back of the page from showing throught to the front. Also, a nice touch would have been to scatter a few pieces of carbonized paper scattered on the background. I do like the depth of field though.

very nice - although the text on the back of the burning page is bleeding through making the main text seem out of focus - a bit distracting -6
