I like the reflection, but wish the colors were more vivid.

A tad dark on the fireman's face. He seems more intent than confused, IMO. I like seeing his reflection in the firetruck, but I think the framing could have easily been moved several touches to the left. 8 Swash

I like the reflection in the fire truck... cool. Otherwise, not the most interesting of poses to me personally...

Hah... My father was a vol. fireman... we have a very similar shot with him, though he hammed up an overwhelmed face for the shot. Like the reflection too...though I might have zoomed in a touch to even the framing on the reflection a bit to the left. Nice shot!

I hope he knows...! lol good shot, but the color is a bit flat (Red). Still it's a nice shot just needed some more light. Good job. Score 7 Justine

This is a really nice shot... I love the reflection of the firefighter on the side of the truck. I'm not sure what camera you used to do this photo, but I would really love to see some more color punch. The colors seem a little flat. I think this part could be improved with software adjustments also. If you would like to play with this particular photo some and see if it can be punched up a little more, let me know. I would love to play with it some :) = 9 - jmsetzler
