Setup involved 3 lights some peppers and fire...easy as that. I did have to clone out the wire that was holding the pepper up in the original however. Other than that, slight adjustment to the light, cropped and sized for submission. Hope you like it!

Wow! 4th...I'll take it!!! Thanks for all the votes and comments. For all those wondering how this was done here is how i did it:
I bought zippo lighter fluid and poured it onto the pepper before lighting. There is a wire holding up the pepper on fire that was cloned out of the top of the flame using PS. Easy as that!

Thanks again!!!

This is a sweet picture. I'm not sure how you did it. The movement on top and the flame makes a very nice picture.

The flame adds variety to the all red theme, and is nicely captured. The colors in the flame pop against the red background.

This would have been a stronger image for me without the peppers on the bottom - they are a little too soft for me and the glare is a bit distracting.
