hello Trekkers,

This is a shot I took from the bonfire. To get an optimum exposure and OE as less as possible and you are the judge whether I succeed in that.
For me, this is a kind of art.

-> To enjoy the larger version "LP" of this bonfire you can click on the picture itself. By this way you can set your monitor on fire :)

Best greetings,



ISO=400, Focal length=105 mm, cropped as a panoramic view and later resized for TL.

Hello Paras :)

The very original composition, these burning pieces of the wood look wonderfully.
Beautiful colours and light, very effect the work!

Best wishes...Barbara.

que c'est beau un feu avec les belle fraises chaude quel rendu avec le flamme et les contrastes.
Bravo et amitiť


Hello Paras, the large version is a must so as to enjoy the full warmth of the fire!
OE? I don't think so, you are trying to give us all the details of a fire after all.
Excellent work.
Tfs, regards Jean.

Hi Paras.

I love the crop and the positioning of the logs, the way they lay draws you in.
So so warm.

Hello Paras,

Good use of a slower shutter speed to give some motion blur in the flickering flames. Excellent graphism and a superb exposure on the highlights. The wide angled panoramic crop works well here. Have a nice weekend!

Hi, Paras. You really captured this bonfire characteristics. The contrast between the warm colors and the dark burning wood and the format looks excellent. Congratulations.

Hi,an excellent composition with wonderful balanced colors.Friendly regards,Otto.
