JOSH DEWBERRY submits a pair of shots from the same fire. He preferred one, his bosses the other.
FROM JOSH: Here are a couple of photos from a recent restaurant fire in Monroeville. I really liked the image of the lone firefighter on his knees but was overruled by my editor and publisher and we ran the shot of the ladder truck. It printed well, though, and told the story better, I suppose.
FROM ED: I like them both. The roiling smoke in the top shot is fascinating and sets off the firefighter nicely. But…I agree that the bottom photo gives a better perspective on the fire.
Too bad you couldn’t use both.
