Z, all the diagonals in your last shot are fantastic. There's so much going on ...

Tom, wow, I think you definitely capture the moment, as it were, and I hope that you and your neighbours didn't suffer too badly from the fire, I can't imagine what seeing that near your home must feel like but your picture is amazing ...

Elrey, I like it, quite a lot going on in there too and interesting to see the (non-)interaction between people (and their phones), presumably waiting for something ...

I'm always interested in the disconnect. Four people in close proximity and their body language indicates they're in their own world

Actually, I was hoping for some insightful commentary omn the composition and the aesthetic qualities of the image. But I do appreciate the comments thus far:

Wow, Tom, wow!

I guess if only your backyard burned but not your home and such we should be thankful, but still, Wow...

There was the home and a little round of green around it that the crews were able to save. Everything else burned to a crisp! We had moved everything out of the house, loaded it on trailers, and moved it to safekeeping at friends' homes. We really thought when we returned the next morning all we would see would be ashes, and we were shocked to tears to see the home still standing. Many heartfelt thanks to the firefighting crews!

Two of our close neighbors' homes did burn to the ground, but the fire crews were able to save the half dozen or so other houses here in the valley. No lives were lost, which is a miracle, considering it was the biggest wildfre in WA state history.
Thanks for commenting, Owain, it is appreciated.


"Your" and "you're" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"They're", "their", and "there" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"Fare" and "fair" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one. The proper expression is "moot point", NOT "mute point".

Not only is the disconnect interesting, but the body language also gives a lead to what is going on in each of those "own worlds". One person all scrunched up, the woman next to her exactly the opposite as her neighbour shares something on his phone. And the guy on the right? ...something is holding his interest. Idle speculation on my part maybe, but it makes the image interesting to read.

Nice one Elrey.


Growing old disgracefully!

Thanks. Yeah, if they had all been in the same position it wouldn't have been as interesting. I actually have a few where the girl with her legs out straight has them folded in, but it's much better like this.

elrey, nice composition as far as shapes go. I could wish for a lighter roof on the nearest car and more detail in the shadows.


PRONOUN ADVISORY: OhLook is a she. | A FEW CORRECT SPELLINGS: lens, aperture, amateur, hobbyist, per se, raccoon, whoa, more so (2 wds.), shoo-in | Comments welcome

More detail in the foreground was something I considered but I felt like it caused the viewer to linger there longer than I wanted, just want the lines to take you into the frame. As for the shadows, I like the mystery it imbues. If you lighten up the shadows, there's no mystery. Plus, the two silver tracks in the foreground, I really like those being all that's visible.
