I was very excited when this challenge was posted. My wife and I have a home-based candle making business. www.amylynns.com I hope I do well with this challenge, since I have access to a huge supply of candles. I took my first set of pictures early in the week, but I thought they were a little boring. I set it up again adding the glasses, towel, robe and flowers. Voters be kind, I can only hope there are not too many other pictures similar to mine.

What an amazing shot. This just makes me FEEL the relaxation and pampering that the photo conveys. Excellent job. Very underrated in my opinion!

Nice configuration. IMO a little bit washed.

It's dangerous to take a bath in it!
Anyway.. nice pic.. I especially like the floating candles.
I'd try that at home one day.

Love the concept, but it appears a bit overexposed. (or over lightened in PS)

Nice mood. However, has a sense of lack of contrast. If it:
1) had more contrast, (without blowing highlights) and
2) did not have the towels that are disracting clutter to me,
it would have been a serious contender for a ribbon. 7.

Very sensual and romantic. So far this is one of the best uses of candlelight i have seen!

With candles floating in the tub, I will advice you not to make it a bath time :)
Great effort with all the candles!!

The shot needs a little straightening and another thing distracting about the shot is the thing on the right hand bottom and the towels not placed neatly.

The scene is pleasant but ruined buy the blobish looking towls in the front of the frame. There is no real subject in the image.
It would have been stronger if you had allowed the horizonal lines in the image (ie the tiles) to run paallel with the frame of the image. The angle you have choses ismore "snapshotish" and lends itself to distractions like the dark edge of the bath. Allowing the candles to starburse rather than just be white blurs would have given an richer effect to the lighting.
