Ladies and Gentlemen, I give you Broon, the Renaissance Comic who also as it happens, eats fire. If you are ever at a Renaissance Festival, and this guy is there, go see him. It's worth it and its a great show for the whole family. Anyway, as usual my wife drags me to the front row where I'm almost sure to get ridiculed by the comic. Well, he left me alone, and left me with a great shot with an awesome perspective. I didn't do much editing at all, it was a RAW file converted, alittle saturation, sharpness, a crop, and a few leaves were cloned out. Other than that, it was the simplest submission I've had yet, and I got a good laugh out of it too!

Quite nicely done! And I like the story to go with it. This will always resonate of a good time for you, and that's what pictures should do.

I can do that...not really, but my breathe is that bad in the morning.

Great capture of the flames in the light like that.

I think this photo would have made a much better night shot.

The pose is dramatic and you have preserved details of the costume very well. The flames seem a bit washed out in competition with the saturated cyan of the sky. Wonder of selectively reducing cyan saturation a bit would allow the fire to stand out better.
