There's something really special about this shot, I've seen it a few times before and keep being drawn to it. Well done!

Thanks, Deb (Melethia). You have a good memory! Actually, it was your positive comment on the earlier version that encouraged me to take another look at it. And yes, I experimented with the post processing to help combat the over-exposed areas.

Here's the one I originally posted as an outtake for Movie Titles II (I hid it from view during the challenge):

' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/60000-64999/61961/120/683061.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/60000-64999/61961/120/683061.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

I recall this from a side challenge I think - and if I recall it correctly, you did a wonderful job of editing it for the challenge - this came out great!

Firefighter! Not fireman, firefighter.

Larry, I am really glad I commented on this 'in challenge' because it means you know that it comes from the heart when I say that I thought this was a briilant portrait and abysmally under valued by the voters.

Congratulations on a new PB (and know if should have been much much higher) but most of all congratulations on creating such a wonderful image

A cool photojournalist type shot that conveys great expectations for this young man. Just has a good feel to it overall too. Nicely done. 8 from me.
