HUGE Charmed fan!!
My Devilish side :P

the fire is real (of course it's for basic editing)it's a piece of stuff we use to light the fire or coals for BBQ. I stuck a long metal pin through my BG (which now has a hole in it :P )and taped it onto a tripod for my flashes, then lit the stuff. it would burn for about 6 shots, so I had to be quick.

PP very simple:
noiseware
crop
enhance red a little
save for web

OK, revising comment to something more constructive, but I advise you to ask SC to get that typo changed.

I was expecting to see a few she-devils in this shot so was quite surprised there wasn't many more. Anyway, my biggest problem with this shot is not the technicals, they are bang on, but the concept itself. The brief was " Create a photo that communicates the concept of `hell.`" So here I am trying to work out what you are trying to communicate. as you probably know I am very much a DNMC Nazi, and whilst this does not fall into that category by any means, it doesn't really communicate any hellish concept to me, sure it shows the typical she-devil character, but to me hell isn't a place of fire, brimstone, eternal punishment and purgatory, of little devils running around with pitchforks or PVC clad she-devils scowling a lot. To me hell is something here on earth, something real yet hellish to think about. However, this is far better than a lot of entries and I'd expect it to score well, however from the forum I can see you are hovering just under the 6 barrier.. so I hope it breaks that as it deserves a 6..

as a subnote, if you had entered this in the halloween challenge you would of done VERY well indeed, maybe top 5.. cold comfort I know.. good luck.
