Street performers playing with fire outside the Glassworks, Gt James St, Derry on Halloween night October 2012. They were juggling flaming torches.

This shot is part of the slideshow from the night.

I shot this “hand-held”. Well without a tripod. I shot it through some railings with the camera braced against a metal rail. In the post production processing I actually reduced the exposure by 1/2 a stop and darkened the highlights in order to maintain the depth of the shadow and bring out the detail in the brightest parts of the flying fire.

It is pretty amazing how far the flaming torches traveled in 1/3 of a second!
