Firecrackers

Your View contributor Stuart Clyne captured a dramatic action photo taken during a festival in Phuket, Thailand.

Clyne used a wide-angle focal length to take this picture, which meant he had to get close to his subjects. The paper wadding from exploding firecrackers and the hands covering the faces of the parade participants make it feel as if you the viewer are right in the action.

As the famous photojournalist Robert Capa once said, “If your picture isn’t good enough, you’re not close enough.”
