Taken at a local drag strip. The car had backfired, and with nitrous oxide being injected into the flames, who needed a flash. I didn't even notice the Fireworks sign until after I got home. The driver got out OK.

I really like the idea, but I think it would be better if it were from a different angle and a little sharper.

hard to tell what the subject is here. is it the flames, or the billboards. could;ve taken more time with the composition here.

I think there is too much going on in this photo. My eye keeps getting pulled into several areas at once and none of them grabs my attention. The fire, the signs, the mirror on the nearby vehicle, the guys on the left.
