Some will probably ask "How is this painting with light?" My answer is the lighter has a little sun in the middle and when you flip the top open it changes 3 colors of lights (really flashy)thats my light source! I thought of and tried many ways including holding it and lighting it with my hand to see the flame at the top, but i find this reflection shot more interesting.

Still, how about painting with light? The shot is made with the flashlight and the sun on the lighter body does not give the impression of light. I'd definitely like to see more details off the top of the lighter this part is lost.

The idea of mirror in the dark is quite interesting although requires a lot of effort to properly position lights and eliminate unwanted reflections. I think you need to evolve this idea, play with additional light sources and reflectors for the flash beam.

The composition is very good although I might have left more on the left and right (personal preference). The focus is quite soft - but that might be a function of the camera (lots of cameras will have difficulty in this sort of challenge if they don't have AE lock). Your choice of subject was very good, I think.

Interesting idea, but there doesn´t seem to be a single part of the photo which is in proper focus.
