This is a self-portrait by candle-light. The only lighting provided was by the candles. The purpose was to add mystery around the artist by providing no background.

I really like the idea. I like the composition, and lighting. All you had to do is a bit more focusing on your face, a bit sharper eyes.... Overall is a good photo.

Way too dark and way too much red.

Your overall lighting is a little too dark for me. And the pose itself doesn't suggest very much enthusiasm or action (unless that's what you were going for). BB

Image needs to be sharper, also, the arrangement of candles does not interest me and there is a tilt

Great idea, but I think with the candles you could have made a much more of the shadows with this one.

You look so sad. :-( Candelight is hard to work with in photography - at least it is for me.

I think this could have been a better expression and pose with better lighting. I like your idea, but you lose so much detail on your face and portrait. Composition is really nice though.

one more light pointed directly at your face would have been helpful to make you a focus in the picture rather than background to the candles.

no clear focus here

And in the fog... too blurry. Nice idea though

a bit soft on the focus, but good idea for other light sources
