This Month in Photo of the Day: Your Shots

What Makes This a Photo of the Day? The light shining through the smoke creates an aura of mystery perfectly in sync with the event itself. Being eye level with the faces in the crowd, I feel an intimacy with it, almost as if I were there. —Alexa Keefe, Photo of the Day editor
