Simple setup with a printed page under candle light. There's a hidden message which you may or may not be able to see (I masked it a little by using a shallow DOF).

I did actually use a candle. It's noted in the notes.

I'm not sure exactly what kind of effect you are going for here, but this photo really doesn't do much for me..

I hope you don't read in that light! :) Your poor eyes! Okay, just kidding but the light does seem rather dark for reading and if it was bumped up a notch it would really add to the shot for me. I like the subject matter you chose, very nice considering the recent breaking of some rule, even if by accident, myself being one of them! ;) My first impression was a 3 vote, after coming back and looking more closely I'm going to a 6 for now, may be back again.

The focus is pretty good - I would've liked the first few lines in that first paragraph all to be in focus then start blending out. I wish the lighting was a bit brighter as well, BUT I do like the fact that it is lighting only a portion of the writing and tapers off. The subject/composition doesn't hold my attention very long - I find it a little dry, a little color to spice things up may have helped, maybe a red circle around 'read the rules' or something similar. Just an idea. All in all I gave it a 5
