Although it's a great closeup of a candle, it does not meet the challenge guidelines. The challenge description states:

"If you choose to shoot an indoor scene with candles or fireplace, concentrate on the artistic elements of the picture--composition, lighting, depth-of-field, etc. Candles can be a beautiful subject for photos. However, we don't want to see a single candle plopped in the middle of the table and lit. A closeup view of a candle flame has been done many times in these forums. Unless you can come up with a new, artistic way to show a candle flame closeup, please choose something else."

Try putting that candle in different settings and see if you can come up with a new way to show the candle.

This is most definately a case of 'one persons opinion'. I think it's a lovely shot that would be better with a romance filter to soften the edges. I happen to find it infinitely more interesting, artistic and well composed than hamburgers being grilled. See, it just goes to show, everyone will see something different.

Suzan.

A nice filter to try is a single or multiple star filter.

Gee, Cal, I'm with Suzan on this one. I particularly like those amazing colors in the flame.

I'm outnumbered by a couple of women, no less! I guess that makes me an old fuddy duddy! I didn't even notice the colors in the flame. That is nice.

As many times as I have stretched the limits of interpretation of a challenge, trying to enforce a specific clause in the current challenge makes me a hippocrate. I'll try to do better next time!

I hope nobody minds, I had this teeny bitof fun with that shot. I don't know why but I was particularly inspired.

Does this make mea geek?

PS I hope y'all get the reference.
