Thanks for all the helping comments and the good score!

I indeed had some trouble with the flame's shape, due to the fact I wanted to blur the background.

A colour version is available here.

Clever use of light. I like the solid light off of the facing flowers and the translucent light through the turned ones.

Great shot! I wish the flame didn't blend into the candle, but it's still a great photo.

something's interesting in how this is composed and how the stalks jut about towards the light

blue ribbon
great idea, lighting and composition; elegant and high quality
the lower two flowers make the image more 3D
This photo could be created by Oliver ,Christophe or someone at the same level.

This is so awesome! Great job of personification, and the backlighting on the "watching" flowers is fabulous. My only nit is the blurred flame, but everything else, the graceful stalk lines, the reflection, is just wonderful. Front page.

oh now this is different! I like the leading lines and the away-facing sunflower, very well done and original. the soft focus on the flame looks a little wrong 8

If you only had the vase, that would be much better I believe. This is a nice idea and half-good execution :|
