1st. Great framing, effectively conveys the utter devastation of a fire. 2nd. Love that the image is so close that you can feel the exhaustive nature of being a first responder, especially in freezing temperatures. Great texture by a material/chemical that most viewers are presumably not used to working with. 3rd. Very clear why it is being photographed. It’s also interesting to have the hopeful church sign in the back contrasting the devastation of a mangled car.
