Not sure where to post this. These were taken yesterday and well have not played with them at all. It was a whole heap of tyres on fire and I think the factory was not doing so well itself. I managed to get there, and home and back to get my camera ( I KNOW i should always have it with me and this showed why). Got a little hassle from the cops too, apparently I needed a press pass or something.

These are really great photos, thanks for sharing. Patricularly like the second, and would probably like the first more if the bit of fence on the left was cropped. But that's a minor issue. Love the pictures. Well exposed. What's the foreground light? Your flash or firemen's spotlight, or is it daylight (and the rest is shadowed by a cloud of smoke)???

By the way, if you like the Canon kit lens (and despite having better lenses I kept coming back to it because the 18-55 range was perfect for me) then a great upgrade (from a quality point of view) is the Sigma 17-50 f2.8. I bought one a couple of months ago and I like it a lot!

Great shots well done!! Cannot work out why the firefighter on the right is wearing Breathing Apparatus but the guy on the left who is beside him feels he does not require it :rolleyes: :rolleyes:

Thanks for the replies. As stated, I did not do anything in PS with these, well not when I posted them, but yeah the fence is a little distracting. The fire was almost midday so all available light was either from the fire or the sun, still playing with Shutter speeds and such so did this on the full auto mode, did not want to risk losing any good shots due to my own clumsiness. And the fire was about 10 minutes from my house ( by car) but saw huge plumes of smoke and could not miss it nor the opportunity to go by and play with the camera.
