quite good; appeals to the medieval/religious side of the site!

How did you even get that spot? Ridiculous!!!

A stellar image. I would have lit the candle and shot with ambient light + slight fill flash, but heinsight is 20/20. This image makes me feel like all the happiness is gone from the world. Love it. Amazing. Awesome.

Superb shot. Love it.
It might have been nice if there was smoke rising from the wick, so the concept of death just arriving.
Very well done, and congrats on the top ten.

Good photograph. Esp. for tarot! Hope death would not come with dark, well manicured fingernails but on angels' wings!

This is cool. I love the contrasting black and white.

Like this, the hands are wonderfully scary, pity about that white dot. Giving a good score for concept and execution, but I want something else in there, maybe a dark coloured scarlet or deep purple rose or object. 8

I love this rendition of the death card. It is very thought provoking. As death snuffs out a candle so does life cause one to burn. LOVE IT!

Very well done but a little too dark (On my screen anyway)

Great concept, quite simple and metaphorical, and I love the black hands. Nitpick: too bad you couldn't clone out that bit of white on the sleeve on the left. This should have been a challenge that allowed expert editing.
