I was using another match to light them. I had a candle burning all the while with me and kept changing matches and burning them. there are 3 matches lined up here and I lit the last one and started clicking to capture the moment first one lights up.
I will also post a link to the setup I used.

I love how close you cropped/shot this one. Definitely deserves a ribbon. I like how you went with only warm colors for the challenge (e.g. instead of using blue smoke). WOW.

Congratulations Gaurawa. How many boxes of matches did you go through?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/30/2006 04:37:43 PM
maybe not original, but i think you pulled it off better than kiwiness actually, who was your inspiration.

Amazing and excellent image. Congratulations on the red.

05/29/2006 01:11:17 AM
Congrats. I can only hope this was a cropped version and you didn't actually have the lens that close?
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Amazing shot with great timing! Congrats on your ribbon, but I'm wondering how many matches this took. :-)

"Strikingly" beautiful! :) The colors are incredible, and the sharpness is supurb. I'll be surprised if this isn't somewhere at the top of the pack.

Love the way this fill's the frame, beautifully simply and perfect for the challenge.

I'm not a pyromaniac - honestly but I am strangely drawn to flames. This is an excellent closeup and almost abstract. It may be my eyes after looking at this for so long but the match isn't quite horizontal to me (bumping to an 8).
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Amazing timing, great focus and exposure.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/26/2006 06:35:42 PM
That's early in the burn cycle, nice catch!

Nice crop, color, contrast, and capture. Well done.

Very crisp and wonderfully vivid color. Excellent!

05/25/2006 02:03:36 PM
nicely done, but the match thing is getting worn out. 6

Terrific sharpness on the match.

This is a fine example of a macro shot ... (that doesn't involve ugly bugs even :) Very well photographed and creative - you should so well with this shot
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/23/2006 07:34:51 PM
Wow amazing shot! Fantastic composition and definitely a ribbon picture.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/23/2006 06:30:37 PM
Nothing distracting, nice color, and a great crop! Normally I don't care for borders, but this works extremely well. 10
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/23/2006 12:12:11 PM
Very interesting perspective. You can really feel the heat. Excellent capture.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/23/2006 11:30:19 AM
Great capture of one of the first split-seconds of a match flame! I hope you didn't have to go through a whole box to get this one, but it was certainly worth all your great effort!
I would love to gain your permission to use this in PowerPoint!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/23/2006 10:34:13 AM
Lovely close up. I imagine that is a match behind the match flaring away in order to preserve the visual symbol of the front match.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/23/2006 09:54:17 AM
Great photo, colors are just great. I also think that the border works very well here.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/22/2006 11:16:00 PM
Such a great shot. It is classic and almost a cliche, however you have pulled it off well. The colors and framing of this are very pleasing. An alround excellet work.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/22/2006 09:29:04 PM
Ahh...the winner. Gorgeous. Great idea (and different) to take the shot so close up that the flame was more about the colors than the shape. Really stands out. 10
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/22/2006 08:14:23 PM
The composition is ok. The image quality is excellent! The subject matter is very good. This photo is very creative.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/22/2006 06:33:15 PM
Nice colors and I also like the border.

Very nice. Perfect timing.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/22/2006 10:59:35 AM
I am thinking this is a matchstick placed in front of a photo of fire but it is still impressive. If I am wrong, then WOW!!!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/22/2006 10:35:49 AM
Nice shot! One of my favorites! Hope to win a ribbon!
