Midnight bonfire to welcome spring
Midnight bonfire to welcome spring

Photograph Information Photographer's Comments
Challenge: Late Night (Basic Editing III)
Camera: Pentax *ist DS
Location: Southern Sweden
Date: May 3, 2005
Aperture: f2.8
ISO: 200
Shutter: 1/1000
Galleries: Abstract, Emotive
Date Uploaded: May 3, 2005

April 30, when this was taken, is the night there are bonfires all over Sweden to celebrate the coming of spring (although the reality is it's a big drinking night until the first of May). This was taken at our cabin, where we used the bonfire as a wonderful excuse to get rid of all our brush.
Cropped, applied very slight curves, USM, and a border.

wow, nice shot! I didn't vote on this challenge, but I might have helped your score out if I had.

You don't have your lenses added yet? You should do that.

I can feel the heat from her. You can almost hear the music the flames are dancing to. Very nice shot.

very very intense...the details of the falmes center and left are great...maybe cropping off the not so sharp ones on the left may have helped???? all and all terrific

wow. the flames are not crisp, but that adds extra punch to this delivery. They look silky smooth, almost wet with orange.

Good shot of the flames. It might have also been good to be farther away so you could see the whole bonfire against the night.

fire is a fun and possible painful thing to shoot. (I did one of a bond fire and adjusted the tones to close to b/w and got a really cool effect.) Nice shot, nothing blown out or blurry. Good shot and good luck
