Am I playing with fire, literally?

Political sensitivity aside, I reckon its shelf life won't be that long. If there's not going to be a war, and no big aftermath (like MH17), the demand for a photo like this will be very low.

By the way, how did your other apocalyptic photo manipulations do in terms of revenue?

Thinking of perhaps expanding the US x Iran (& proxies) concepts beyond this "accident". I don't want/need the exposure so also thinking of dumping them on Wirestock so I remain anonymous (sacrifice the 15% on sales to keep me out sight).

The flooding series is selling consistently, also had some sales with Amazon on fire concepts but like the news it has died down. Many have been accepted at Arcangel for book covers and those take a while.

Best sale so far has been this plane on fire concept sold on Alamy for $115 gross.

Perhaps it not a matter of "bad taste" rather "smart" ways to pass a message and keep visuals available for many uses?
