What would the normal / boring version of this picture look like?

The boring version of this picture would be a picture of a plane being on the ground that was not destroyed nor on flames. It would also likely be daytime and just be a picture of a plane on a runway.

Then describe what the photographer did to make the image interesting, creative, and/or unique.

I’m assuming this photographer took the flames and brightened them and turned up the black point making the darker parts of the image appear even darker. This picture was also taken at an angle not too steep nor too flat.

What would the normal / boring version of this picture look like?

The boring version of this picture would be a photo taken from the seats. If the photographer was in the stadium, they probably would have had spectators in the way of getting a good shot. The normal version of this picture is not likely taken from a drone.

Then describe what the photographer did to make the image interesting, creative, and/or unique.

The main thing this photographer did to make this image interesting was taking it through the lens of a drone. They also framed it very well, showing the circling of the stadium. They also used shades and hues to their advantage; the way you can tell who is rooting for what based on the teal colors within the crowd.
