Better than the grand winner, in my opinion. Great composition, and the contrast between the smoky car and the defined firemen really lets the subject pop in a wonderful way, without blurring the background too much. Clearly you were in the right place at the right time, and dynamo with a camera.
I enjoyed reading your Behind the Lens. It's cool for me to realize that you shoot with a 7D, because that's what I have, and though I haven't mastered it yet, your incredible work is inspiring and tells me that with time, skill, knowhow, and perhaps another lens or two, my pictures can improve.
Is Lightroom better than Photoshop, or just different? I hear about a lot of people using it, but I've never tried. I wonder how much post can alter a photograph. (I use Photoshop.)
Thanks for your time, if you made it this far.

Behind The Lens

Location
I took this photo on a neighborhood street in front of home. My wife informed me of an auto fire and I grabbed my camera and literally ran out to the street.
Time
The time of day was around noon in March of 2013, in Southern Arizona so it was nice out. Perfect for my first impromptu fire fighting shoot.
Lighting
The harsh mid-day Arizona sun was difused a bit by the smoke and steam from the car fire which helped add a wonderful contrast between the background cars and the foreground fire fighters.
Equipment
I shot handheld with a Canon EOS-7D with a Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS USM lens. The settings for this shot was ISO-100, aperture f/7.1, shutter 1/800. I was using a 64GB CF memory card to ensure I had plenty of room to keep capturing the moment as it changed.
Inspiration
I have never shot a fire in progress nor firemen for that matter. In this case I arrived on the scene before the squad came and although I kept my distance, the car exploded at one point sending shrapnel in my direction. I have family members that are firemen and I've always wanted to shoot them in action but never had the opportunity until it was presented in front of my own home that day. I was doing digital development of the shots within minutes of taking them and this was clearly the standout shot. It was exciting!
Editing
I typically use Adobe Lightroom to adjust every photo I take, including this one. The original photo was on the dark side with muted colors so it required adjustment in exposure, contrast, and color saturation.
In my camera bag
I always carry my Canon EOS-7D DLSR, and my Canon G12 point and shoot. Lenses include a Canon 70-300mm, a Sigma 50mm f/2.8 EX DG Macro, Canon EF 50mm f/1.8, a Canon EF 28mm f/1.8 USM Wide Angle, and Canon 40mm EF f/2. My tripod is a Manfrotto 190CXPRO3 3-Section Pro Carbon Fiber to save weight, with a Manfrotto joystick head. Accessories include a Custom SLR Glide Strap with C-Loop HD Camera Strap Mount, Vello wireless shutter release, Canon BG-E7 Battery Grip, and SanDisk 64GB CF memory cards.
Feedback
My advice is to always have your camera ready to go, charged up, a large empty memory card inserted, with an all-around lens attached as default. With a fire, I doubt you will get your choice of shooting locations so keep in a safe zone and keep shooting like your life depends on it. If you don't have a fast memory card, you will be slowed down by your image transfer as I was. Stay keep calm to minimize camera shake, and pay attention to framing. Odds are you won't be able to use a tripod so ensure you have your manual setting to compensate with faster shutter speeds.
