Hearing about those horrible fires on the radio and T.V. don't prepare you for the reality of how ferocious and devastating those fires really are. This is fantastic photojournalism. . .THANK YOU!!

I imagine I'll see a few of these as I continue voting. Nice colors

Great colors in the sky, the foreground could use either more exposure (for detail) or less exposure (for a silhouette) seems kind of in between to me.

Nice capture. Would work well as a image for a story on the fires. 640x428? Odd out-of-the-camera aspect ratio...

Emmotive image! I hope for your sake that it wasn't taken in your neighbourhood.

I think this is a great capture of my home town. Its so sad what has happened, and I believe that you have captured a very powerful image. I think it has great composition and nice colors. Nice work.

Magnificent and one of my favourites (in terms of photographic ability) in the challenge. Stunning given that you have achieved this in minimal editing. Really hope this does well for you and that the fires have not impacted on you or your family 10
