How about you show us your take on it? I guess what I'm saying is, this sort of shot is not easy. It takes time to set up, and because you're using stuff that burns, plus it's at night, in the dark, and it happens in real time, it's tough to get it all perfect. So...it's easy to criticize, harder to do. Can you produce one that you're happy with?
Also, I hate square compositions. I'm gonna stick with my slanted layout.
