Which one of these photos do you like the most?  I need help editing. I shot this in between my NYT and WSJ shoots. Thanks!

    The last one is my favorite.

    Steve, i would choose either first one from the top or first one from the bottom. Maybe the one from the bottom is more clear to understand the main idea (shows what’s going on). The one with girl in smog is beautiful, but looks very usual and does not reflect “fire” theme (girl can be in frog, for example, in the early morning).

    I personally like the one with the girl the best. Of the fire truck pictures I like the last one the best. Composition and lighting seem a little better, plus you get a greater idea of the damage cause by the fire aka more dramatic.

    I like the last one the best for clarity, etc. They are so great! No wonder you’re having a hard time deciding!

    Hey Stephen,

    I like the last one for the news value and composition. But the one with the girl has an eerie mystical quality to it. Good work on a busy day.

    The last one. Composition, context, supporting elements in the form of water streams and the second fire truck on the far left all make it a strong image that sums up the event.

    But I love the one of the girl. Sweet, calm, almost pastoral, which creates a sense of emotional conflict when put in the context of fires and smoke, not morning mist.

    Good work on all of them.
