Here are a couple of shots of a burning candle using a Cokin multi-image filter.

Nikon D100, Sigma 28-70mm, Tripod.
Aperture priority mode -- f2.8
1/250th shutter speed
-0.7 EV compensation

The wide open lens yields a shallow depth of field and helps to hide the lines between the filter segments.

Thanks, Vito. I have been very disappointed with that filter until I read a piece on a Cokin website which stated to use a wide aperture for best results. This was my first attempt and the results are significantly better than earlier tries.

pretty neat shot. i think i like the second one best...

this one doesn't have the 'cool' factor of the multiple-image filter, but i thought it came out rather well nonetheless...
