A nice peaceful photograph. A great capture of the subject's personality - something every portrait should strive to do. I like the tones and the lighting.

Very sweet - nice use of noise to soften the image further - low contrast too to emphasise the message.

Comment by dr rick:
Greetings from the Critique Club!

The message
This was one of the most memorable entries from the challenge to me. The center of interest is the fire (which is appropriate for the challenge), but the ghosts add an extra element that moves the image above the mundane. The image has an overall warm, cozy feeling, not at all creepy or scary; the ghosts just want to get warm!

Creative choices
The lighting from fire is great, but the candles are distracting; the image would work better without them. The setting (a fireplace as opposed to an open campfire) works well to define the shapes of the ghosts, as well as adding an interesting texture to the photo. The soft focus and noise add to the cozy feeling.

Technical aspects
The fire is overexposed, although avoiding this would certainly underexpose the rest of the image and probably not allow enough time to achieve the ghost effect, so it was probably a good tradeoff. The ghosts are mostly done well, but the one in the middle is a bit too transparent where the flame shines through and the right leg of the right one is obaque where the flame reflected off his pants. Some judicious retouching could have improved both of these areas.

Comment by faidoi:
Very interesting composition. I like the idea. Unfortunately the lights in the background distracts from the main subjects , the ghost. Your eyes will looks at the main fire and wander away toward the lights on the top. I would try reshooting because this is an excellent idea.
