It's a shame that you can see the matchhead behind the one in the foreground.

I like verry luch this one
Good exposition
good composition - maybe just some millimeters more on the top in order to have the whole flame in the picture but just a personal opinion

Excellent shot. Very nice capture of the shape of the flame and nicely exposed and lit as well. Only thing is, I see something sneaking in behind the match in the forefront ;)

Very cool match-behind-a-match capture. If I had to nitpick this one it'd be limited to the rear match head being slightly visible right of the foreground match ... otherwise, well executed. *8*
