I'll Never Understand Arson!       ©2019 jomari
Nikon Coolpix B700       8th place, 61 points
1/400s, f4, ISO 100, 50mm, Normal Program, Pattern, no flash
 
Post-Processing: Crop and straighten. Nikcfx > detail extraction. Nikcfx > darken/lighten centre. Resize image. Topaz Denoise. Curves. Save for web.       Extra Info: There has been a spate of arson attacks on parked cars in our city over the last few months. The count is getting pretty high. Sometimes there have been two or three in as many days. They are mostly in a certain part of town but occasionally further afield. Mostly the cars have been parked in the street but at least one was in a carport.
This nasty behaviour certainly makes me scratch my head in wonder.

    Thanks Anita. I'm glad that this isn't 'a thing' in your city. It's pretty awful.

    Thanks for the response kerszkavet. I'm not offended but I had to point out that I'm not taking the matter lightly. I hope they get the offenders soon too, but it's taking a long time.

    WOW, this hasn's caught on where we live but it's a terrible shame indeed that people have nothing better to do than wreck people's hard earned money!

    Jomari - I appreciated from your great picture and extra info that you were not treating the subject lightly, it was just that the title felt at odds with this for me. No one else mentioned it so please ignore me. Sorry, I didn't mean to cause any offence/upset at this worrying time.
Hope that the perpetrators are stopped.

    Thank you all for votes and comments.

@kerskavet I intended no levity. This is happening in my city. Some of the burnt cars have been within a block or two of my house. We have cars parked in our driveway overnight. So in other words, it could happen to us. Since I entered this there has been another victim and I heard that the count is over 30 since the start of the year, and the burnings were going on before that.

    Such a shame for the owners of the cars. The angle and detail are great for showing the damage to the car.

    Hard to understand such behavior. The picture is well taken. in my favs.

    Fascinating how the rear looks relatively unharmed but the front is destroyed...

Looks like tricky lighting, but the front is clear and crisp - with the police tape a great colour contrast with the orange metal. Good shot and interpretation of the theme.

Not a fan of the title: it seems to suggest a levity at odds with the subject, but that might just be me.

    Wow, more sad than strange. I hope they catch the perpetrator soon. Your lighting is really good to show the damage well.
