Default Fire or heat - glass on fire?

Is this glass have something burning on it? Should I be worried or not? All right, this really wasn't on fire, but I thought it ended up rather looking like it was. And since there haven't been many entries this week, I thought I would throw it in.

So how did you create this photo. I don't think it is alcohol burning or it would be blue. The glass is not being heated by the stove. Induction cook tops do not generate heat. They require a metal pan to generate the heat.

I think what you have done is shoot the empty glass on the cook top and then, using a transparent layer, superimposed the flames on the original image.

Am I right?

No, it was an experiment with trailing-sync flash. The red was created with a red cloth over a flashlight that I started in the glass itself, then sort-of waved it around, turning off the flashlight and quickly removing it and my hand before the flash went off. Light painting is not something I've managed to master, but thought this unintended photo was better than any of the other ones that were the more traditional light-painting/trailing sync flash photos.

Well I'll be danged! If that isn't one of the neatest tricks I have seen in a while. What a novel idea and brilliant execution. It really works! Kudos and a couple of dangs!.....

Using a bluish cloth may have even fooled us further!!! Lights painting is something I have always wanted to try. Well done.

Thanks, I wasn't sure what type of reaction this photo would get, it's definitely off the beaten track, so to speak.
