    Thanks for the votes. This was one of approximately 25 images. I really liked about 4, equally and flipped a coin. I will post the others in Outtakes.

    Beautiful composition and lighting. The smoke is so well caught. The lines to the top corner are perfect. as is the colour. Well done and in my top picks.

    Simplicity isn't always easy to achieve but you've mastered it here.

    Very nicely composed and executed - the glowing tip of the wick is an especially good touch.

    I love this, what an original take on a candle photo! What is giving the smoke the orange hue? Very high in my favorites.
