Wow, i never seen anything like that before!!
What is it surrounded by?
Considering it has been in a fire, its very clean; not much charring...
Awesome photo, probably use it for my desktop image for a while if you dont mind!!

Wow back at you Antony, i'm flattered you want it as a backdrop.
It was a controlled fire - i burnt small sections of it at a time over the gas cooker hob (warning i used the extracter fan to take away fumes in case the fumes were noxious), then as each section became red hot i let it melt & crumple a bit and pushed a few holes in with a knife the can is weaker than wet paper when red hot) so the can almost tears. I tried to leave the OK of coke mostly intact to show it was a coke can.
Its clean as very little smoke is produced in this process.
The silver chips are tiny christmas decoration silver stones sold off after christmas - painted gravel. But as ther are silver grey the camera seesm to like the colour.
The colours are then pumped in Photoshop elements to find all the colours produced by the burning process. Yes i'm a bit of a pyromaniac now and again.
