This is a shot glass filled with rubbing alcohol and set on fire. Shot took several tries with exposures between 15-30 seconds, had a few nice pics that were a better image of the glass than here, but this one has that eerie face in the fire! Even more creepy, the glass exploded about 5 seconds after the expose. I think there really was a fire demon in there! Post processing, spot tweeking with levels and saturation, cloned out a few annoying bright spots on the glass, and finally added some extra contrast in select areas to make the face stand out more.

That is one spectacular flame. Is the liquid really water, or is it lighter fluid? Is the blue block the flamable material? I think that unless it is really necessary, the blue block would be better off not showing - the effect would be more spectacular.
