First place, you have all the information included in the photo, with the person being highlighted. Good context. Second place, unusual getting all these elements in a photo. Wish the aperture was shallower, but it's a good capture. Third place, how often do you see a cement truck putting out a car fire? Good grab. Wish the photographer had stepped a little to the right to get that sign on the left out of the frame.
