wow - a striking result - looks like either someone watching a bonfire or an alien leaving it's ship.

very soft on the subject, though with the split second you had to get it, fair enough. better kit may have focussed on it in time, who knows

I'd crop away quite a chink of the top - it's not adding to the shot

Great effect, has an almost surreal sort of animation feel to it. I like the slight motion blur in the fire breather. Also like the space at the top, the way the fire fades through orange to black adds to the shot

Like Iain I think this a great shot - the fire breather looks like some 'fuzzy alien' type being thanks to the blur. Though for me the white bit is too....... white? I don't know if there was any shading (rolling fire, smoke) there and it would have been difficult to catch if there was, but for me anyway it just spoils an otherwise brilliant pic.
