Firstly, I think that candlelight is not artificial, great idea to use the "rushes"(not sure what they are called), but maybe concentrating on them as a close up could have been cool

don't clutter it up, the candle and the velvet are fine without all the flower things

the white in the middle of the picture is distracting somehow.

I'm not sure what to make of this photo. Visually not interesting to me. But I see the effort. 4

I like the plant "things" in front of the candle -- adds a nice soft touch. karmat

Very nice set up. I like the way this looks. The red in the back is obvious without being overdone. Your angle and framing/cropping are very nice, and the focus seems good as well. it MIGHT be a bit soft on the fuzzies in the very front, but it's not a big deal at all. The lighting works very nicely for the mood here. Nice one! Good luck in the challenge. ~Hbunch7187~
