Very cool! I definitely wanted to do something outside the realm of a "normal" photograph. A lot of different factors coming into play with these photos...extremely long shutter times, mid-shot focal length changes. It is different when you are trying to create motion and blur instead of prevent it. I got a couple photos to enter, but still working on a couple ideas......

Despite the controversy this has been the most fun of any challenge in a long time.

Fire is light and moves.so, lots of tiny light trails together. does this count?

I'd say it counts, IMHO.
I'd also say it was a cool shot but, somehow that doesn't seem right...

I just noticed it, do you see the mans face (profile) on the left side of the fire?

I see the profile too - wouldn't have noticed it if you hadn't pointed it out, GW. All that shot does is make me want to start a fire in the fireplace - it snowed last night and is cold out.

I am so pleased to see some one post a pic of a fire in the fireplace. I have tried before and never captured anything other than embers glowing, the actual fire was not so evident. I must try to extend the exposure time is that right? Thanks

Wow, there are some really imaginative photos this month. Just over 1 week to go and I'm no nearer to an entry. In fact, seeing some of the entries I think I'm actually further away!!!

Vole - how long were you staring at the fire before the face appeared; because it's obviously intentional, right?
