Arrrk, people have mentioned the rock on the left hand side and the gravel in my yard. I would have loved to have burnt that out, but I was a little paranoid about the changing of elements in a photo. SO had to do with them in there , and yes it sucks!

AND I just noticed that stupid white ball is still visible, I have that in every shot, drives me nuts. That will teach me to clean my yard before a shoot!


~~~

Thanks everyone for the wonderful comments!!

Also thanks to all the girls who have no idea that there is a white ball, rocks and pebbles in this shot!!! made me giggle!

Being English there are some obvious language differences between myself and you Americans. So I've learnt a new Americanism

Sucks .... amer, adj meaning stunning, amazing and awesome.

yowzers !

congrats. the rock makes it more realistic.

does fire beat rock, or vice-versa ?

i think fire beats rock. farmers trick to clear a field. burn a big fire around a boulder - pour cold water on rock. rock breaks apart and can be hauled away in pieces.

Congrats on this wonderful art-ful image. Glad to see it earning the ribbon.

Oh man. . .the rock and the yard obviously don't detract much at ALL from this amazing photo. In fact, I rather like seeing a photo that looks lifelike and real rather than always looking like it was shot in a perfect studio. What a great photo! Congratulations on 3rd place!!!

Hon, if it weren't for your notes, I'd never have noticed any of those other things. There's this lovely Adonis and he's twirling fire and it's quite fascinating! And it's over 7 and a ribbon. No complaints from you, young lady!

I very much appreciate the idea, the model, the lighting, the actual flame - so much effort went into this shot, the downside is the background has several distracting features - still one of the best I've seen in voting.
