I like the second one best too, there is something about it that gives it that edge over the other two if you know what I mean.

Very nice image! I am interested to know details of the aperture and shutter speed. I have not had much success in capturing scenes of fire as I expose for too long which makes the images look blurry. Jay

Yes high ISO and fast shutter are a must have for flames.

These are actually kinda slow, if you look at the bigger versions, they're slightly blurred too (I took the ISO too low)

EXIF data:

Pentax *ist DL
Aperture: f4.5
Shutter speed: 1/45
Sensitivity: ISO-800

They were taken in burst mode. (I always shoot in burst mode)

Thanks for the hint about turning up the ISO. I never think about doing that, and so couldn't figure out how to take good pictures of fire (love looking into the flames, reminds me of summer camp). I'm another person who's been unsuccessful with capturing them. Now that I can use that 50mm 1.4, maybe I'll be able to get a good one this winter.

Roy, where does one right click? When I right click on the image on this thread as well as on the link, I do not see an option to view EXIF info. :?Jay

You have to have viewexif installed though

Jelpee, mtngal, fast shutter is the key to nice flame pictures.

This one was taken at ISO-1600 in broad daylight, however it gave me the oppurtunity to shoot at 1/1600 shutter speed, which gave me the nice "frame" of the fireball.
