Good photo, but not a pleasant image to see a book burning. Have you seen the film?

Welcome to EPZ Aliona.


This is a nice image, well staged.

For my own liking, I would suggest the flames have saturation increased to stand out more; slightly less blue in the blacks for better contrast; and I would add some ripple effect above the flames to indicate heat rising.

One tip, when you re size for the web, open your new image first before uploading, check for sharpness, and apply as needed, then save and upload. Fike compression causes loss of detail, and this does benefit with a little sharpening on here.

I have uploaded a mod with this done, - scroll up this page and click the modifications tab.


Enjoy the site, - and the book was better than the film!

This image works well for me, and from the title and thumbnail I could immediately relate to the image and story. Personally I wouldn't change a thing, and like it just as it is. Nice creative work.

Ray Bradbury, the author, had said: "Love what you do and do what you love....you must imagine that you want and build it. Imagination must be the centre of your life." Here you have made "imagination" the centre of your picture. I agree with banehawi regarding the flames... and with nonur about the book burning...

As a beginner you have set this up with excellent composition. Seeing the logo, and you being a beginner where did this picture come from? Who is 'Bonnie & Clyde inc'?
The number 451 on the armband too? If this is all your own work then I am impressed.

As a beginner you can be forgiven the 'burn ou't of the flames and the flatness and I look forward to seeing more of your impressive work.

The idea is fine and interesting. Can't remember that Bradbury title, thought I had read most of his. Prefer Asimov and Clarke though. There is something wrong with the colour unless you did it intentionally. A faint green caste and a slight flatness with shadows a little blocked up. No apparent technical reason so possibly in processing.

Lens is IS not VR. Doesn't matter, but VR IS Nikon, IS IS Canon and OS IS Sigma.
