Good capture of motion, but overall, the focus is a little soft. Good composition and colors.

1)Does the Photo fit the theme?(6)

Overall Score:5

I think this shot has good intentions. There are certain things that I do not agree with, but that may go along with personal oppinions. It is just a shame that the people swinging the fire or lights were not a little more still while swinging. To me that adds a bit of visual unsatisfaction so to speak. The towns people are a choice. They show that there is intrest in what is going on in the picture. I think it would have fared better to get the top of the thing the front guy is twirling.

a smaller apature setting would be better here so more of the area is dark making the lights much more powerful

Great shot, the lighting is awesome. The motion is clear, the people are in focus enough so to not take away from the picture, well done.

cool lighting

Lucky you to have found this! Great shot. I think that you could have cropped off a third of the picture on the left and made it portrait style as the guy at the front is the most interesting and the motion from his fire is so cool! Good Luck!

maybe would have been more effective if you had focussed on just one subject

Great DOF, good capture of motion and culture. Good exposure.
Might have been a bit better composition wise concerning the guy in the foreground.

if the foremost fire circle was shown in full, not cut off at the top this would be really great.
