That's really nice. I think it would really suit a 16:9 crop too.
You can see some of my photos here if you are so inclined

Just fantastic, love the smoke, and how you have the foreground in black and a perfectly blue sky...
With kind regards,

Thanks for your comment Dilek, The effect is quite simple I just underexpose and use a three shot bracket in situations like this (almost shooting into the sun) and then pick out the one I like best!, then in Paint Shop a little play in curves and its done

Beautiful image with the potential to be great if someone with a chainsaw would please cut the trees down covering the 4 arches left of centre.
Perhaps a quarter cut off the top & bottom of frame but retaining full width would also add to the impact.

Anyone got a chainsaw?

This is a very smart composition. I like the nice silhouettes and colours. I especially like the colours and texture of the smoke.
