The size of this really adds a lot to the class of this image. I like the suttle white border and the perfect exposure time. good luck

A really nice close-up shot where we get a sharp as a tack view of the very hot wick within the candleflame. My only critique on this piece is too make it more visually appealing is to have included the full flame in the shot as well.

Great shot!

Wondeful macro. That exposure is just perfect. I'm guessing it's a bit easier the closer you get to the flame (less dynamic range). 9 - one of my top 3.

beautiful realization, good composition, the hot point (red) of the wick is on a gold point. Beautiful environment

Very well done!

A beautiful close up! I love the shape that the oddly formed wax makes... it makes the picture more unique than a plain straight candle. Very nice.

Very good and sharp macro shot of the light. Great work and good luck!
