    Thanks, everyone for the comments.
Robert. I use those foam boards they sell in the dollar store for kids. They are supposed to be backboards for school projects. They come in white and black. I used two black ones and one white one to hem in the candle as closely as I could with both black boards angled slightly away to reduce any reflections. The white one was on top of the table and I stuck the candle to it with its own wax. Then waited for the furnace to shut down. I had to take several before catching that elusive shot when the flame was not waving.

    As I said, one of the best candle flames I have seen. How did you get it so still?

    Beautiful shot, relevant to the theme. In my faves.

    There is something very pure and simplistic about this photo that takes it out of the ordinary.

    The simplicity of the white candle and perfect flame makes this a striking image. I have shot many candles but rarely get a flame that shows the bottom and top hot spots. the room environment must have been extremely still. Great job.

    Nice clean and simple presentation of a good subject for the theme. The little finger of wax is a nice touch. Wish the closer side of the candle were in a little sharper focus.

    I really like this image. The overall colors are just so serene and beautiful. I really like your use of gray background.
