Stuck a match in a small pot of soil to hold it in place. 21_F.gif Lorene held a small shop light really close to the matchstick and then lit the match from behind with a lighter. I clicked the ol' shutter.

I like the mid-burn capture on this. Maybe go with less stick and more flame?

I saw a few other images with the same concepts here on this challenge and it usually turns me off. However, this shot is just so well executed and sharp that I could not help but comment on it and give it a high score. It's an 8 for me!

Returning for comments. Looks just like gaurawa's old shot just cropped differently. I do like the crop which adds a slightly different touch to it.
