Fits challenge=5
Wow factor/uniqueness=1

The only thing I don't like about this image is that I can't give it anything more than a 10. The candle has a slight lean to it but it is really a pleasant image. Good luck

A few too many distracting blown out hightlights.

Nice shot! I love how you capture the mix of light and reflections. The glass is an interesting barrier.

The bokeh lights (fairy lights?) to me is te impact in this image rather than the candle. The glass seems to be in focus but the candle is not.

I like the bokeh and the way that the highlights are distorted by the glass. I find the item in the lower left corner a little distracting. Perhaps this area could have been darkened.

Nice round bokeh! It's colorful and catchy, definitely meets the challenge. It just doesn't say a lot to me. Sorry. It is a very nice shot. 6

The crop feels too tight, like the top part was inadvertently chopped off. I think a "portrait" orientation with the entire hurrricane lamp would've felt better. The bokeh in back is lovely -- Christmas tree?

Nice attempt at the candlelight but the background lighting distracts from the actual candle in it's glass holder.

maybe center the candle and have the reflections around it. Like the concept though
