    Thanks Bernie. It was a lot of fun. Took the shots at night in the garden for many obvious reasons. large garbage can under the paper to catch the burning bits and a fire hose at the ready.

    Thanks Jade, ysal. I had the paper hanging from a bar so it had lots of oxygen. I was impressed at how quickly it caught and how intense the heat was. Great lesson for kids :-)

    Perfectly exposed to capture the hand as well as the flame and paper. Well composed.

    Like the concept, but composition could be improved - would prefer that the dominant element - the flame - not be so central.

    A fine bit of "pyro". The composition looks odd, as there is no context as to why the paper is being set alight (other than the headline). It doesn't look like the lighting of a fire in a fireplace (but I hope it is).

    More fire than paper to me. Dramatic all the same.

    Me being a South African, you definitely caught my attention. I totally support the concept of burning that article! :) I feel you needed a bit more space at the top, and the hand is just a bit too orange for my liking, but other than that I like the image!
