It's not very often you get an opportunity to photograph a fire. This is a very interesting subject.
I'm glad you decided the point of view is the Firefighter as the "important" object in focus. Great use of depth of field.
The colors are very complimentary and dramatic. It's great to see the green and orange work with the earth tones of the burning building.
Excellent choice to use shallow depth of field. It brings your eye right to the mystery of the subject matter..the firefighter.
Hi Laura: The only thing that bothers me is I want to see more of the firefighter. What is that white object in his hand? It's ok that we don't see his face but I just want to see a little more of his hand and even one leg with his hose or tools used to put out the fire.
How to improve your photo
Take different perspective shots: above, below, closeup and further away.
Add a little more contrast to create more drama!
Experiment with collage: take similar images and create a triptych.
