    What made you go B&W on this? It totally works ... it's an excellent B&W shot in my view, so don't get me wrong. Just curious really as the colour of the flames would normally prevent most people from choosing B&W I would think.

    I'm not a huge B&W fan but I like this shot. Has a bit of an X-Files feeling to it

    This is it with colour, I think ultimately I liked the shadows on his jacket, and I thought the blue sky kinda took away from the flame colour.

    It's good in colour too but well done on recognising the potential in the B&W option.

    Cool photo! Gives "burning the midnight oil" a whole new meaning but why is he burning it?

    Yes the b&w adds that much more to it, very well done Skippy, I really like this one.
    Reality is a nice place to visit, but I wouldn't want to live there!
