is the hero next door

The manipulation of this shot was a compromise. I like the narrower height in my images and this is the 1st where I've increased the height from 260px to 300px which will be my default for a while.

I had experimented with 3 heights for this image, 1000x300, 1000x500 and 16x9. The larger images included text I really wanted that is printed on the fire engine. It says "WA FIRE BRIGADE" but the image looked too high and the composition threw me.

This is my preference, you can imagine the 60 year old lettering on the engine. It's gold embossed.
