A few days ago, in a Japanese restaurant, right in front of us, we had a cooker doing his magic tricks and a wonderful dinner. I am glad I had my camera with me in that moment, right when I was thinking about this Friday theme. Have a nice week-end.

Hi Maria,

Nice shot of the fire. Good eye there. If only the pic could show the whole fire in it. Good work.

Hi Maria,

What a great picture of the fire. The colors are great. Very quick thinking and action on your part as those fires don't last very long.


Well captured moment Maria..Including the chef/cook in the photo is a great idea.. looks really hot :)) thanks


Does no matter, in my opinion, if the fire is only in its half part... the moment was perfectly captured, and the mood, too.
In this case the little lack on sharpening enhances the action.
Ciao, Antonella

Hello Maria
You definitely captured the moment, its wise to always have a camera with us otherwise we would miss out many good moments.
Great shot.
They do put on a show and the food is good.
