Basically, the negative space in the background gives a sense that there is a lot more darkness in the place where the match-holder is.

There is another example of this in the challenge, so the unfortunately the originality is diminished.
However, this is better executed and the focus is superb as I can see the grain of the wood in the match.
Nice photo!

Very good use of negative space... we all know how tiny and useless a match seems in a big dark place, and you caught that feeling well. Just enough light to illuminate the fingertips and nothing else! Very mysterious and spooky.

One of my favs this week...'striking' image. I really love how it lends itself to multiple interpretations...lighting one up...mourning...etc. 10 Lisa

At first, I thought it would be better without the hand showing, but I think that gives a good indication of scale. Good capture of the fire. karmat

Well done. Clear & well composed.

Good shot in darkness. A little soft on the focus on the matchstick itself, but that could be the product of heavy lighting at the flame blowing out other highlights.

WOW! I'm in awe of the beauty of this fire, and the crop is great - especially on the right side. Really good focus and exposure. Excellent use of negative space. Good work and good luck! ~indigo997
