This was my top score for the challenge. I know you can't help it, but I had wished the ropes were not there. Great color and feel though!

News at 10? I was waiting for the film at 11!
Just kidding - great exposure here - I know how tough fire is to get right.

Great shot. The fire is really sweet and still good lighting.

My favorite of the challenge. Great color and action. Love the flow of the staircase. Back to bump you up to 9.

the composition is a bit convoluted but I LOVE the detail you captured in the flames.

Great color and clarity. Pretty good representation of a crime scene

Nice capture. The stairwell and flames both rise up. I like it. You may score lower for having a photo of a crime's effects rather of the crime scene, but who knows how voters choose to vote.

What a great idea, was this at a movie studio or firemen training center? I have a firemen training center near me, wish I had thought of going there for a shot.

Wow, can't wait to hear the story behind this capture.

Nice job capturing the flames without blowing out the highlights.

Personally the only thing here that shows a crime scene is the title. Needs to be pushed more.

Movie set? Universal or MGM Studios? Must be a 200-300mm lens. That type of flare would cook your eyebrows if you were that close. The ropes kind of give it away. ;-) No vote, I'm in this one.

Very intense shot, well done. 8

If this is real, NICE job not over exposing the flames!
It's kind of a long title for my taste. Maybe a title along the lines of "Crime Scene Coverup" or something simple like that. Great job with the picture though.
