Greetings from the Critique Club :)

This is an excellent macro shot. The detail on the lighter is quite impressive. I think the overexposure on the flame is excellent because it creates nice lighting for the rest of the image.

I really feel at a loss for a decent critique on this photo because I can't suggest improvement for it. There are lots of options you could try with the background, but this one just seems to work as is without any help.

Keep up the great work :)

Excellent detail on the lighter. The flame is abit overexposed, but ... what can ya do, it's FIRE, right? :) Every week there's a shot I absolutely do not like that does well - I think this is that shot this week...good luck!

This would've been a really cool picture if it wasn't quite so overexposed

Good detail on the lighter. The flame itself seems a little over exposed, but it is most certainly hard to get both with the correct exposure. There are some cool colors going on in the middle.

The texture in the lighter is picked up very well.

While this fit the topic it fails to come across.

Would be better if the flame wasn;t just a white washout.

You've really attempted to give us a good photograph here. the colours of the base (iron) are nice as is the background, but unfortunately, your flame is so overpowering and bright that it's blown out the whole top of the photo and you can't really see any flame as such.

Good idea, but the flame is way overexposed.
