Great composition. I'd only change two things. 1. Obama's left foot feels like a tentacle continuation of his leg. (I think it's because through the strong shadow we can't see most of it) 2. Obama's red levels are a tad overdone. I'd shift hue closer to his natural color. (Even though I understand most red comes from the fire light and the general red color pattern of the chop.)
I've tweaked this based on your feedback NewsMaster. Thanks.
Lot of impact and symobolsim in this image, nice work.
Silver congrats, jest3r. Great to see you back in top 3.
