A massive accident near my house: there were 3 fire trucks, 3 ambulances and 5 or so police cars as well as shattered glass everywhere. I wish I could've gotten closer, but...

Standing back as you did gave more of the story I think. Well framed including the bystanders and the light of course highlights the emergency team. Definetly a good story teller, Michele

Love it. Brings back memories of my days a FF, EMS. I must do some more ride alongs with the local boys.
I don't mind the "our view" that Neil mentions, perhaps because I was always in the middle cutting someone out of their vehicle or trying to keep the swivel neckers away.

Works well in B&W as it cuts the drama to the bone. Simplifies it. Sanitises it.

Nice tones...makes you want to explore the story. The only nit is that it's "our view" we would see from the sidelines. Reporters make the best photos by taking us where we "can't go".

This was close enough and excellent capture here.
tells a compelling story without getting in the way of the crew.
It seems to be coming from a low angle which adds to the drama.
First one of the bunch? I'm looking for more from you!
