    I was at a recent football match in Sofia, Bulgaria during the cup Final Win against Montana when the Ultra hardcore fans of sector G set off fireworks and flares. The atmosphere was highly charged and hundreds of riot police where called into action.

    I love the energy in this frame. Highly charged and emotional scenes like a riot often provide great visual opportunities and can help carry the message and get the point across. Here I particularly like the upper level of the crowd behind the first wave of smoke. It really helps show the viewer the size and the scale of this riot. Great job!
