Your Photo: Our Critique

Jeffrey Hammer captured this five second exposure with a Canon 20D, set to ISO 100 and an aperture of f/6.3. This was taken during a fireworks show but really has an eerie feel to it. It could be cropped tighter, but would lose some of the feel. At first glance there isn’t a lot to this but once you study it you notice the person standing over the fire and the glow of the light on the surrounding objects the road leading into the image.

I like it because it is different and Jeffrey took a chance.
