Challenge: Rule of Thirds III (Basic Editing)
Camera: Canon EOS-30D
Location: near aparment complex
Date: Apr 23, 2007
Aperture: f6.3
ISO: 100
Shutter: 1/640th
Date Uploaded: Apr 24, 2007

This was shot during a Fire exercise that burned down three buildings (a house and two sheds) to make room for a field being built in (link to Whitworthian article about it).

I'm very happy that this has ribboned. Always a thrilling to see one of you one photos on the DPC homepage. This is my first entry from Spokane to ever ribbon or score in the 7s. That is exciting to see something that isn't shot in Cannon Beach and isn't a nature shot ribbon.

Lovely retouching to show brilliant contrast, color and saturation in your final pix. So impressive. Makes me want to go do it myself.

Amazing Photo! I love the concept.

Congrats Zoomer! Spokane is a beautiful city in a beautiful area so there are plenty more ribbons to be found where that came from.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/02/2007 08:50:35 AM
Greetings from Eastern Washington! Like you, I find this area so uninspiring photographically. My father says to take good pictures we will have to travel someplace pretty. It seems you somewhat agree with your ribbons being at Canon Beach, etc and this being your first from Spokane. Your photo is great because it could have been taken just about anywhere in the world and proves you don't have to be some place stunning to have a shot. :)

how this did not capture the blue is a mystery to me - this is a stunning shot.

Really cool shot, but looks photoshopped. If this was a raw capture, it is simply awesome.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/30/2007 07:37:30 PM
Beauty capture.
04/29/2007 10:09:56 PM
This shot is pretty impressive, I still think I would have liked it better with something else in the frame than just the window and the wall, like some firefighter reaching for that window or whatever but this works well and has great tones in it, got a 7 from me.

This is a superb photo, but it's screaming for a better title. There's such a striking contrast between the very plain, gray siding and the intense chaos inside.
