Default New Challenge - Oct 16-Oct 29 -- Three Candles...or not??

This challenge is more of an indoor challenge in the category of Still Life.

Shoot any arrangement of candles, burning or not, preferably with three candles in the group. Any kind of candles can be used including tapers, pillar, jar, votive, or tea-light. The setting may be a dinner table, a side table, or any surface suitable for displaying the candles.

I am sure most people here have seen the warning statements included with most candles. Remember that the top of a burning candle is FIRE! Don't burn candles on or near flammable material. Some method of collecting dripping wax should be provided to protect the surface on which they are displayed. Use caution when handling burning candles or just extinguished candles. If you drip wax on the carpet or tablecloth, someone is really going to be mad!!

If you want some good ideas on candle photos, may I suggest you search Google Images for Candles. You will find literally hundreds of examples.

Have fun with this one but most of all be careful. This is a good exercise for when it is raining or snowing outside.
