This is a beautiful elegant photo. I like its warmth and clearly striking flame. The gold coloring looks so nice against the black background, and I find it fascinating reading your notes on how you took it.
Magnificent technique.
Best of luck in the contest

Nice photo. I like the warmth the flame expresses. It is not overpowering and illuminates the rest of the photo well. It provides expression. Best of luck in the contest.

I am struggling for any other words, apart from LOVE IT! This is an amazing image and you have hit this spot on. Focus is great, colours are great and the warm glow from the candle is spot on. Well done and good luck :-)

Interesting and well lit image of a candle amongst the flowers.
The chiaroscuro is quite lovely in this.
It would make a fine Caravaggio painting.
I think I might have added a Sepia filter, but it is very good as is.

Very nice contest entry for the open challenge. Good initial impact. The composition works with the flame off to the center. Great detail and depth of field. good luck in the contest.

This is very lovely...especially for this golden time of the year..during out Autumn. I like the colors your flame has created. Nice job with your camera settings. Your light and shadows are dramatic but also gentle and pleasing to view.

Your framing is very nice...with your spray of flowers moving diagonally through your frame and the candle just that bit off center. More space above the candle?...maybe just a bit to allow for a nice framing of this photo to hang on your wall. Beautiful work.

This is a realistic, perfectly colored, and skillfully executed piece. You have captured the whimsical quality of the light that has always intrigued me. The light, colour and the composition have worked well. Good luck!
